Rubbishes talk: Zebo

Munster's Simon Zebo has rubbished talk that his absence from Ireland's side in the Six Nations Championship was down to over-celebrating tries.

The 24-year-old finisher, who watched Andrew Trimble and Dave Kearney start for the eventual champions, labelled such claims "nonsense".

According to the Irish Independent, Zebo spoke with Ireland coach Joe Schmidt in March and he told him that his defensive game required work.

"Talk about try celebrations is nonsense," said Zebo. "I don't think there's anything behind that.

"Joe loves to have fun on the training park and things like that. I don't think I'm the only one to celebrate tries. It's probably people looking for a reason as to why I wasn't picked.

"It's nothing to do with finding reasons. It's simply that Dave Kearney and Andrew Trimble have done such an incredible job to keep the jersey. They've made it tough for me."
