Ian Madigan chip from behind tryline and winning try vs Glasgow Warriors

Young flyhalf Ian Madigan starred at the RDS as Leinster beat Glasgow Warriors 22-17 in last weekend's RaboDirect PRO12 game. In the second half he pulled off a risky chip kick from behind his own try line, and he also scored a nicely taken try.   

Leinster fans have been crowing at the performance of 23-year-old Madigan, seen as the natural successor to star Jonny Sexton, who is leaving for Racing Metro at the end of the season.

Madigan picked up the Man of the Match for his showing against the Warriors, which included scoring all of Leinster's points and threatening in open play on regular occasion.

Glasgow scored two first half tries but Madigan's late converted try, and his five from five penalty kicks, proved the difference as Leinster cemented their place at the top of the PRO12 table.

"Ian is growing as a player all the time. He has an ability to change up and exploit gaps, particularly a soft shoulder on a forward if he sees an opportunity, coach Joe Schmidt told The Score.

"I know Ian well, he knows me well. I would be inclined to take the pressure off him and say, play what you see in front of you, play your natural game. Otherwise, you get players trying to force things and that's not a good mental state to approach a game," he added.
