This French rugby international definitely has the most Irish accent that you'll ever hear

Sacré 'bloody' bleu.

As rugby fans may know, New Zealand have surrendered their Under-20 World Championship rugby title after being beaten by France in an absorbing semi-final.

The French will now face England in the final and Les Blues will probably be selecting Daniel Brennan, the son of former Ireland international Trevor, in their starting lineup for the showpiece match.

The prop, who has represented France at U17 and U18 level, was utterly dominant against the All Blacks as he helped the French to an impressive win.

Granted, every rugby fan is familiar with hearing a few different accents when it comes to the domain of international rugby - C.J Stander and Bundee Aki definitely don't have Sean O'Brien's Irish brogue - but it's quite rare to hear an Irish accent on a player that's representing a different country.

Brennan is currently on the books of Toulouse having signed a two-year contract with the Top 14 club and it's clear that he's making great strides at club and international level.

Fair play to him.


This being said, we're curious to know if any French viewers knew what Brennan was saying when he said : "I'm absolutely bloody delighted" with the win.

Despite the fact that he has spent the majority of his life in France - Daniel moved with his family from Kildare in 2002 when his dad signed for Toulouse-  it's clear that he's still keeping the accent.

This interview should give you a chuckle.

Best of luck to him in the final.
