We could watch Ian Madigan's drop goal conversion over and over and over again

Take a bow.

BAA-BAAS GAMES inevitably produce a moment of magic or two — but it was one of the men in green who turned on the style last night.

Ireland trailed 22-14 with just 45 seconds remaining when Paddy Jackson touched down in the corner to cut the deficit to three.

Anxious to take the conversion and still leave time for the restart, Ian Madigan didn’t bother with the kicking tee and instead swerved a drop goal off the outside of his right boot and over the bar.


It didn’t make a huge amount of difference in the end as the Baa-Baas still won 22-21.
