Brian O’Driscoll and Rob Kearney have been fighting in training… again

The Leinster and Ireland duo love a good scrap ahead of a big game.

ROB KEARNEY WILL certainly miss his sparring partner Brian O’Driscoll when the centre retires at the end of the season.

The provincial and international teammates were paired off against each other at Leinster’s Monday morning training session and, if the pictures are any proof, Kearney got the better of his elder.

All that practice comes in handy when Liam Williams is kneeing teammates in the head and Mike Phillips is throwing his weight around.
