PIC: Peter O'Mahony's brilliant photo of him as a Munster ball boy back in 1999

He's Munster through and through.

Peter O'Mahony has been one of the outstanding players in European rugby this season and he played a big part in getting Munster back into the knockout stages of the Champions Cup.

The 27-year-old is Munster to the core as he's been with The Reds since he was very young, but this throwback he posted on Instagram shows exactly how far back his love for the province goes.

We're pretty certain that the photo was taken during Munster's European Cup game against Colomiers at Musgrave Park in 1999 which would mean the Corkman was 10 at the time.

Who would have guessed that kid would go on to captain his province and country? A great snap.
