Sminky Shorts release sketch especially for Ireland's clash with France

There's the small matter of a Rugby World Cup Pool D decider this afternoon between Ireland and France, and Sminky Shorts have released a special short for it.

The sketch sees two Irish buffaloes munching their way through some "shite grass" in England when a French rooster comes upon the duo.

After calling him a cock, the rooster takes offence and throws a barrage of abuse at the lads who take it like water off a duck's back.

Referring to the game, our buffaloes have the last word: "Erra, f**k it, we'll bate them anyway!"
