Video: Cork rugby player uses car to beat teammate in a foot race, wins, then turns car on its side
This lad was a little too smart for his own good.
Barring freakish exceptions like Sean Cronin, most front-row forwards are going to lose out to a back when it comes to a foot race on the rugby pitch.
Obviously knowing that defeat was likely, Chris O'Regan from Mallow Rugby Club decided to take matters into his own hands in a race against his colleague, second centre Michael Sweeney, by driving the length of the pitch in a Ford Focus instead of sprinting flat out.
Absolutely brilliant craic from these LADS!#RaceLADS #WhoopsLAD

We're not sure exactly how old this clip is but we only stumbled upon it today and thought it well worth a share.
Considering that Chris himself was the first to comment on the post below, we're assuming that his pride was hurt more than anything else afterwards.
