It’s as if they were separated at birth.

Former Munster and Ireland back-row Alan Quinlan and former Leinster and Ireland hooker Bernard Jackman look nothing like each other, of course, but anyone watching RTE News this evening who didn’t know who they were could have been forgiven for a case of mistaken identity thanks to some errant captioning.

Analysing rugby can be a stressful job, however, and while it was just a simple mistake this time, Quinny did get a worrying look into what the future might hold if that hairline starts to recede a little over the next few years.

No offence Bernard.

Hat-tip to Paul Skelton, Rory Shanahan and Anthony O’Mahony for sending this one our way
