WATCH: Andrew Trimble prank calls Paddy Jackson’s Dad and it’s brilliant
Andrew Trimble is a very funny man.
As is Paddy Jackson, of course, but while the out-half has deservedly gained plenty of kudos for his miming skills and duets with Simon Zebo in the past, it was Trimble’s turn to have some fun at the expense of his Ulster and Ireland colleague.
Trimble and Jackson recently did a shift at the Ulster Rugby ticket office and decided to give Paddy’s father Peter a call to see if he fancied a season ticket for the 2016/17 season.
Jackson, as Ulster fans will know, has been in such fine form for his province this season that there have been calls for him to be given an opportunity to impress at 10 for Ireland.
While in conversation with Jackson’s father, Trimble decided to pretend otherwise and impressed on Peter Jackson that one reason to get a 2016/17 season ticket would be the potential arrival of the best out-half in the world.
To play instead of his son, of course...

Fair play to him for being able to keep the charade up for so long; this is gas.
