The CJ Stander show just landed in Rome.
CJ Stander just crossed the line again for Ireland against Italy, bagging a hat-trick in the process, and opening up a 10-35 lead over the Azzuri.
The Munster star created a bit of history in the process, becoming the first Irish player to bag a hat-trick in the Six Nations in fifteen years.
The last man to do so? None other than Brian O’Driscoll who bagged three tries against Scotland back in 2002.
Stander also became the first forward to bag a hat-trick in the history of the Six Nations.
What a talent.
