TWEETS: Irish fans going quietly insane waiting for news on Sean O’Brien

We’ve lost Paulie, we’ve lost Peter O’Mahony.

We still don’t know for sure about Johnny Sexton.

It’s been a tough week for Irish rugby and we all know it could get a lot worse this afternoon, once the result of Sean O’Brien’s citing is announced.

If it ever bloody is!

We were told to expect news by lunchtime, but still we wait.

Some people are trying to stay optimistic.

While others just want to know, god dammit.

The nerves are probably worse in some areas than others.

This tweeter is trying to read the positives into the delay.

And this one is sharing far too much information.

Budget news? We don’t care about budget news, just tell us what’s happening with Seanie!

Although this guy has an unusual vision of the future.

Come on already, just tell us, we can take it.

Although there’s always time for a quick dig at the neighbours!
