LONDON IRISH prop Harry Elrington may not possess a convenient frame for hurling, but he has certainly taken to the sport a lot quicker than YouTube sensation Olajide Olatunji (A.K.A. KSI).

Elrington picked up a hurl for the first time to take up a challenge against online entertainer KSI, who boasts over two million social media followers, with both novices doing their upmost to score a point over the posts at London Irish’s Hazelwood training complex.

Hilarity ensues as both Englishmen struggle with the technique of this ‘crazy Irish sport’, but can you guess what the score was? Watch the video below to find out how the pair got on.
