Pic: Verne Troyer steps into the Ulster scrum and Peter Stringer gets confused

The former Munster man knows how to poke fun at himself.

We never thought there would be a tale involving Austin Powers star Verne Troyer and Peter Stringer but here you go. The diminutive Irish scrum-half was scrolling through his Twitter feed this morning when he came upon this picture of Troyer getting his face into the Ulster scrum. Well, a cardboard version of the scrum at Belfast Airport anyway.

And Stringer couldn’t resist the chance to poke fun at himself by reckoning it looked like he had stepped into the Ulster back-row.

We’re pretty sure that Troyer won’t have a clue who Stringer is, and considering he hashtagged his original tweet #futbol, we have a fair idea he doesn’t even know what rugby is.

Still, let’s hope the two lads can bond over this incident and maybe shoot a buddy movie together somewhere down the line.
