Cian Healy was delighted to catch former team-mate Brian O’Driscoll out in a mistake on Twitter earlier today, but was soon forced to eat his words.
O’Driscoll commented before the England v All Blacks game at Twickeham that “Brodie Retallick v's Michael Lawes should be a good contest today!”

Healy pointed out that the English player’s first name is actually Courtney, adding “give BT their cash back”.
O’Driscoll and another tweeter took great pleasure in explaining that Retallick had gotten Lawes name wrong earlier in the year and O’Driscoll was referring to the gaffe in his tweet.
@ProperChurch afraid the joke went well over ur head. Google their names together and then a small apology to follow.— Brian O'Driscoll (@BrianODriscoll) November 8, 2014
You're not going to catch him out that easily Cian.
