WATCH: This Catch From Tadhg Beirne In The USA Game Is Near Superhuman
Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
Ireland completed a second successive November series clean sweep on Saturday with a resounding 57-14 win over the USA Eagles at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.
The win was Ireland’s fourth this month after previous wins against Italy, Argentina and world champions the All Blacks, and sets them up nicely as they look to defend their Six Nations Grand Slam crown next year.
The series was a huge success overall, not just because of the results, but because of the emergence of some fringe players who look set to give Schmidt plenty of selection headaches come February of next year when Ireland take on England in their Six Nations opener.
One man who’s been a revelation for Munster this season and hugely impressed in his two starts against Italy and USA is lock Tadhg Beirne. He was unlucky to miss out on selection for the other two games, and could very well come into the fold if he keeps his fine run of form up.
Just check out this catch early on in the USA game on Saturday. Great work by Kilcoyne and Ruddock in the lift, but the acrobatics from Beirne are something else.
