WHAT WAS YOUR favourite moment from today’s history smashing day for Ireland?

Conor Murray’s improbable try? Paddy Jackson’s game-sealing penalty?

Or was everything in South Africa just too tense to enjoy first time around? Like us, maybe the happiest you were able to feel all day was when the U20s were in action against New Zealand.

Adam McBurney blasted through tacklers, Max Deegan dived for a late try and Johnny McPhillips’ assured goal-kicking in a downpour brought forth a landmark result against the most-vaunted of opponents.

Here’s a few highlights from a tremendous performance from the Wolfpups.
