"Aaaaaaaaa Jean-Claude was an obvious pick for me," Harrington told reporters. "He's extremely clever and he's a great negotiator. I mean we could probably send him over to the USA tomorrow and he'd come back with a signed agreement for a 14 all draw."

Harrington believes Juncker will also be able be able to help the British players in the European Team, who may be feeling a little isolated and left out after Brexit.

"Jean-Claude has a lovely gentle way of talking to British people," Harrington continued. "He'll be able to make Poults and Tommy and Casey and the lads feel special and convince them they are doing really really well even when it's obvious they're getting the shit kicked out of them."
