Donncha O’Callaghan owns BOD on twitter

We like nothing better than a bit of banter between our sporting heroes and yesterday gave us a fantastic exchange between two Munster and Leinster greats.

Clongowes Wood College sent a picture of a group of their students to both Brian O’Driscoll and Donncha O’Callaghan. All bar one were reading BOD’s recent autobiography; the odd man out was reading O’Callaghan’s earlier book.

The Leinster legend responded first, suggesting O’Callaghan’s biography must have come from the bargain basement bin.

A long silence suggested O’Callaghan was taking the high moral ground and ignoring the insult, but he then hit back with a cracking response.

Sorry Brian, you're usually a winner when it comes to twitter bouts, but Donncha wins this one.
