WATCH: ‘We didn’t even win!’: O’Donovan brothers bring the craic to RTÉ quiz show

RTÉ launch their new quiz ‘Know The Score’ on Sunday at 8.30pm, and have wisely chosen Ireland’s current favourite sportsmen to feature in the opening episode.

The rowing brothers have been pitted on opposite teams for the quiz, which is hosted by fellow Corkonian Jacqui Hurley.

The two lads join team captains Shane Byrne and Ruby Walsh and look to be having a great time in a clip released by RTÉ.

Typically modest, Gary and Paul joked about their current celebrity status and sought to remind viewers that they didn’t actually win the Olympic final.

“We lost the bloody thing,” Paul laughed. “It’s not ideal!”

His brother agreed, “We didn’t win, people think we’re Olympic champions, we’re not!”

Gary also took the chanve to try his hand at hosting - we cannot wait to see the full episode.

Know The Score on RTÉ1 on Sunday night at 8:30pm.
