While you were thinking about the 6 Nations Munster scored one of the tries of the season
Jack O’Donoghue marked his first senior start by finishing off this sweeping end-to-end move.

PRO12 GAMES DURING the Six Nations often fail to pique the interest of a lot of rugby fans given the absence of so many front-line players but Munster’s breathtaking attacking play in the second half of their 33-16 win over Cardiff demanded attention.

Denis Hurley, Keith Earls, JJ Hanrahan, Billy Holland and Jack O’Donoghue all played big roles in a scintillating score launched from the Munster 22.

There was a lot to love about this score from Hurley’s searing break and lofted pass to Keith Earls’ offload but the lovely short pass by second row Holland was perfect.

O’Donoghue has been tipped for big things and he showed great pace to gallop home for what is definitely a try of the season contender.

He’s not Jerry Maguire but Niall Woods still fights to get the best deal for Irish rugby players
