Who do these two clowns think they are lining up with our Rugby heroes?

IT'S not even Halloween yet, but Ireland's rugby stars are already getting into the spirit of dressing up.

Team-mates Luke Fitzgerald and Jamie Heaslip are unrecognisable in this snap with oversized 80s' wigs and moustaches.

They were posing in the team hotel before training in Limerick this week when Tommy Bowe put the photo up on his twitter site.

"What you think of the new Puma Ireland jersey?" Tommy tweeted. "Jamie is loving the long hair too much!"

Luke Fitzgerald, pictured sitting, was left out of Declan Kidney's initially squad line up but has since proven his fitness. The flyer was drafted in for the up and coming autumn internationals and is keen to show he is ready to wear the new Irish jersey.

But the team has been mired by injury news as it was revealed skipper Brian O'Driscoll was one of four players to sit out training in Limerick.

The squad is in training in the Munster ground ahead of the tests against South Africa, Samoa, New Zealand and Argentina at the Aviva Stadium next month.

Fans can also catch a glimpse of the team in action at an open training session in the Aviva on November 8.
