‘Forget it, it’s a poor call’ – mic’d up Rob Kearney shows fierce competitive streak in Super Rugby clash

Super Rugby AU has kicked off and so has the Western Force career of Irish fullback Rob Kearney.

The 34-year-old made the move from Leinster in September of last year and has had to wait for his debut down under.

Stan Sports mic’d up the veteran Irishman and it showed the fiercely competitive streak in the former British & Irish Lions star.

Western Force were up against the Brumbies in Round 1 of this year’s Super Rugby AU competition with all eyes fixed on the Force’s marquee signing.

The side went on to lose by 11-27 but, as you can see in this video, Rob Kearney was very much still at the top of his game.

We see as the veteran Ireland star is constantly barking orders at his players from the rear of the field – whilst demonstrating that he is a leading figure in the side as he speaks to his players under the posts.

Kearney also shows his experience as he runs over to the referee to ask questions.

This is the kind of experience that makes top-class international players.

We hear as Kearney is unhappy with the ref’s decision in the final play of the game as he says, ‘Forget it, it’a a poor call, it’s a poor call.’

This video cuts out the comment at the end but it can be found in other recordings of Rob Kearney in his Super Rugby debut.
