79 minutes gone, leading by three points against the Wallabies, Ireland were about to secure a famous win over the former World Champions. Up steps Paul O’Connell with an absolute crunching tackle that epitomises the man.

The man, the myth, the legend. Happy retirement Paul, there will never be a player like you again.
