Shane Lowry might be decent at golf, but it turns out he's not too bad with a rugby ball either

One of the biggest matches of the season in Irish rugby took place last night as Munster welcomed Leinster to Thomond Park, and the team in blue were most certainly a new look side having had a lot of changes over the summer, most notably the departure of Jonny Sexton.

Obviously, that leaves a bit of a gap for Leinster in that position, and with O'Gara retired there's also problems for Ireland if Sexton should be injured again as he was during the last 6 Nations. Fear not however, as golf's Shane Lowry has stepped up to the mark and looks like he's ready for the challenge, after he tweeted this video to Ronan O'Gara asking for a few suggestions on how to improve his technique.

We're yet to see if Ronan has any tips for the big man, but we're sure that he'll be able to put the frighteners on Jonny in training tomorrow by showing him this clip of the competition for his place coming through the ranks.
