Even when Ireland play bad, CJ Stander still manages to steal the show.
Ireland were undone by Wales on Friday night, ending their hopes of a third Six Nations title in four years.
Joe Schmidt’s men once again were left to pay for not converting their chances when it mattered and ultimately paid for a misfiring line-out throughout the second-half.
There have been calls to bring Peter O’Mahony into the side to fix the problem at set-piece, but when you see Stander break away in moments like this, he surely can’t be the man to make with for the Munster captain.
Will Heaslip make way against England? Ireland could definitely benefit from Stander’s freakish ball-carrying skills at eight.
