Former England hooker turned rugby pundit Brian Moore appeared to have a lot of fun during his commentary on the France vs Ireland match at the weekend, as he seemed to knowingly attempt to inebriate viewers of the dramatic game.

As the Six Nations kicked off, so too did the increasingly popular Six Nations Drinking Game, devised by Twitter celebrity the 'Welsh Dalai Lama'.

Players in this game must take a drink when certain events such as a try on debut or a reset scrum occur, but also the commentary plays a big part in deciding when alcohol is consumed. 

The game lists a host of commentary cliches that when uttered, more drink must be taken.

An entertaining game, likely to lead to merriment and only adding to the enjoyment of the rugby, Moore, however, seemed on a mission to leave players of the game legless as he incorporated as many of these cliches into his analysis as he could manage.

At times, he seemed to knowingly run through cliches included in the game as if he had the rulebook in front of him, but when he shoehorned in that famous Trumpian word 'covfefe', it was clear that he knew what he was doing.

Describing the new laws about less chatting back to the referee, Moore hilariously speculated: “So Slimani’s comments – perhaps they were discussing Donald Trump’s version of ‘Covfefe’ and whatever that meant, I don’t know.” 

It was clear now that he was having tremendous fun orchestrating the drinking game and it did not go unnoticed by the increasingly tipsy participants.

Below you can see an image of the rules for the Six Nations Drinking Game, just in case you wanted to get involved next weekend.

And whilst the France vs Ireland game was going on, rugby fans noticed that Moore was clearly aware of the rules, which is why he was saying such weird things throughout commentary.

Brian Moore, you've been found out!
