A boy the kid.
Keith Earls has been in fantastic form this season for both Munster and Ireland, scoring some crucial tries and putting in some big performances when it mattered.
The Limerick native struggled with a couple of injuries earlier in the season. But seems to have shaken them off and has been one of Ireland’s best players at this year’s Six Nations.
Earls, in my humble opinion, is one of the most underrated players in world rugby. He’s even underrated by a lot of Irish fans and it just begs belief. The man is a serious baller and deserves so much more credit.
8 – Keith Earls has scored 8⃣ Test tries since the beginning of 2017, the most of any European player in that time, while only two tier one players have scored more overall in that period (I Folau – 12, R Ioane – 10). Form. pic.twitter.com/Xpt8tPjJoq

Just look at this try-scoring record that popped up last night. Since the beginning of 2017, no European player has scored more Test tries than Keith Earls with eight. Only Rieko Ioane and Israel Folau scored more, with the two of them having incredible seasons last year.
It’s also worth noting that Earls missed the entire November Series with injury. No doubt he would bagged a couple there if he was playing. Now can we please start recognising just how damn good this man is?
