You won't see a better piece of skill this weekend than Keith Earls' Zebo-esque flick

It was a risky move but it paid off for Earls nicely.

HE MIGHT NOT be in the Irish matchday squad at the moment but Keith Earls reminded everyone last night about just how classy a footballer he is.

After Glasgow reduced the deficit to two points midway through the second half in Munster’s Pro12 clash at Musgrave Park Earls raced onto an Ian Keatley grubber and did his best Simon Zebo impression to immaculately flick the ball into his hands.

He probably could have just picked the ball up rather than attempt the touch but it worked out perfectly for the utility back as Munster went on to claim a bonus point victory.

And just for comparison’s sake, here is Zebo’s effort from two years ago.
