WATCH: Irish rugby stars swim with SHARKS


Yep, that’s right.. The Irish rugby team just dived into shark infested waters – and lets just say – there was plenty of screaming.

The rugby players are currently over on tour in South Africa, and it looks like the lads wanted to get there adrenaline pumping – by coming face to face with some MASSIVE great white sharks.

Taking to Instagram, Irish rugby star Jamie Heaslip shared a video from team’s terrifying excursion, and it’s certainly not for the faint hearted.

Unbelievable experience today with the boys. #scenes #shouldertoshoulder #teamofus

“Unbelievable experience today with the boys. #scenes #shouldertoshoulder #teamofus,” Jamie wrote.

We’re not gonna lie, we don’t think we’ll ever hear a pack of burly rugby lads sound that terrified again, but then again we’d be pretty scared too.

It’s not clear which Irish rugby stars were actually in the cage when the shark launched towards them – but we’re sure they won’t be forgetting that anytime soon!
