The great Paddy Jackson strikes again.

As well as being a bloody good rugby player on the pitch, Paddy Jackson might just be our favourite Irish rugby player off of it.

The Eoin McLove lookalike has always struck us as a bit of craic and only confirmed as much with his brilliant lip-syncing of the JCB song and his unforgettable Kanye and Jay-Z duet with Simon Zebo on the Irish tour of the US last year.

Today, he had a special Christmas message for his Facebook followers and while the Lord of the Rings theme throughout was touching and very well-said, the picture at the end of Jackson mimicking another lookalike, Merry Brandybuck, alongside Pippin Took is just inspired.

Well played Paddy, you’ve done it again.
