Rugby pro Jamie Heaslip is on tour in South Africa with his teammates, and when they’re not training or diving with great white sharks, they’re getting the shift.

Jamie’s been getting acquainted with all the wildlife Johannesburg has to offer, and managed to get a cheeky kiss from a giraffe!


The rugby team took a trip to Lion’s Park, and got “to know the locals.” Jamie said, “Interesting day making new friends #ShoulderToShoulder #TeamOfUs”.

Kildare native also posted a video of the encounter on his Instagram account, in which he can be seen giving his new animal friend a treat while his pals egg him on.

Jamie popped the question to long-term love Sheena O’Buachalla earlier this year, but for some reason, we don’t think she’ll have too many problems with this holiday romance.
