Training Clip Shows Ireland Practicing Brilliant Lineout Move For Keith Earls Try Vs England


Ireland brought their 2021 Six Nations campaign to a close on Saturday evening in some style with an excellent 32-18 win over old rivals England at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.

Tries from Keith Earls and Jack Conan along with several kicks from captain Johnny Sexton ensured a famous win for the men in green as they bid farewell to CJ Stander who played his last game for Ireland ahead of his impending retirement.

But it’s another Munster man that had a lot of people talking after the game with winger Keith Earls turning back the clock and putting in a vintage performance.

His try came off the back of an excellent lineout move with Jack Conan rising highest and popping back inside before Earls broke through the defence and left Elliot Daly and Jonny May for dead with some incredible footwork.

And now a brilliant clip has surfaced thanks to the eagle eye of rugby analyst Brett Igoe.

Ahead of the game, Ireland coach Simon Easterby spoke to Irish Rugby TV but if you look very carefully you can see Ireland practising that exact move in the background with Earls bursting into space.

Preparation, preparation, preparation. You absolutely love to see it.
