Cork players hijack a Twitter Q&A with captain Anthony Nash

Twitter Q&A sessions can be tricky to manage, as Manchester City found out last year when they promoted one with their winger Jesus Navas with the remarkably silly #askjesus hashtag.

But it is usually members of the public who try and derail the sessions with daft questions - not the player’s own teammates.

We reckon Cork hurling captain Anthony Nash will have a few choice words for fellow players Paudie O’Sullivan, Jamie Coughlan, Luke O’Farrell and others who took advantage of the Allianz League hurling launch to ask Nash a series of increasingly embarrassing questions.

Some other GAA fans did ask Nash genuine questions, but most just sat back to enjoy the trolling.

Nash himself chose to take the high moral ground - on Twitter anyway. The boys could be facing a Nash penalty or two on the training pitch though!
