They're gearing up for their clash against Italy on Sunday, but Rob Kearney and Cian Healy took some time out to watch One Direction perform at the O2 in London.

The boyband played six shows at the arena this week and the rugby heroes made sure to catch one of their gigs.

"Well, One Direction were brilliant tonight," Cian wrote online.

"Rob stole the show on the big screen. Made for the stage, that man."

Last weekend, Irishman Niall Horan supported the boys in green against Romania.

And Rob and Cian weren't the only rugby stars to sing along to What Makes You Beautiful and Live While You're Young.


All Blacks stars Dan Carter, Liam Messam and Victor Vito were all smiles when they met Niall back stage after the show.

Meanwhile, Niall was not impressed with the paparazzi, who he said were "nasty" when he was leaving an after-party on Wednesday night.

The Mullingar man was angry that paps told fans to move out of the way in order to get a snap of him leaving a club.

"I absolutely hate some of those paps," he wrote online. "Nasty, nasty people. Whoever the hell you were, don't ever tell one of our fans to get out of the way.

"So you can get a sh*t picture of me walking into a night club that you'll get 10 quid for.

"You do nothing for me, so you get out of the way," he added.

On a happier note, Niall said the band's new album is "ready to go" and will be released in November.

Made in the AM will be their fifth and last album before they take a break next year.

Elsewhere, Ed Sheeran said he won't be writing any more songs for the boyband because "they don't really need as much help anymore. They can kind of do their own thing".


Sheeran worked with the band from the beginning, penning hits like Little Things and Over Again.

"Harry was 16 when I first met him," Sheeran said to MTV, "but now he's 21 and has written with everyone in the world and has learned how to write songs."
