Russell Crowe tasks reporter on her rugby knowledge

Actor Russell Crowe corrected a local reporter at the weekend, after she asked if he would let his rugby league team play against the Irish national team, which plays rugby union.

Crowe said: "South Sydney Rabbitohs play rugby league. Its a different sport. Totally different rules. But you know, thanks for bringing it up."

The interview ended on a strange back and forth discussion on a previous statement by Crowe about the UK and Ireland.

Crowe was in Dublin at the weekend for the premiere of ‘Noah’, a film based on the story of Noah's Ark.
