Dublin: 5 °C Sunday 16 January, 2022

It's safe to say that drinks were on Brian O'Driscoll after yesterday's Grand Slam win

He won a handy €500 from a bet he put on for yesterday’s Grand Slam.

IT WOULD BE an understatement to say that yesterday was a good day for Irish rugby fans. One couple in particular were pretty excited about the big day.

Amy Huberman was busy on Instagram making some jokes about the similarities between people on stilts at the parade and the height of Devon Toner…

And with the way things went yesterday, she ended up not only going out out, but going “out out out out out out”. A serious celebration, if ever there was one.

Progress report. Out. Maybe even out out out out out out.

Meanwhile, Brian O’Driscoll was cooped up in the studio at Twickenham.

Will there be 1 in 4 smiling at the end???!

But it wasn’t long before it was time for him to celebrate.

He took to Instagram to let everybody know that drinks were on him last night, after he won €525, thanks to a €150 bet on Ireland to win the Grand Slam.

Drinks are on me!!! 🍀

Look at the date that he made the bet on. The Six Nations hadn’t even started at that stage.  There’s no doubt that he was very confident that he’d have reason to celebrate this Paddy’s Day. At least he’ll be comforted by the fact that he’s coming home to an entire country that’s probably more hungover than he is.

If you missed the match during all of the festivities yesterday, TV3 are airing a rugby special at 4pm this afternoon to celebrate the homecoming of the Irish rugby team.
