126KG prop shows dazzling footwork to set up epic try in Champions Cup

Leinster and Ireland prop Tadhg Furlong showed superb footwork and a delicate offload to set up Leinster’s fourth try against Wasps on Friday.

The 126kg forward received the ball from fly half Johnny Sexton five metres behind the gainline before showing incredible footwork to get on the outside of Wasps’ back line and unleash winger James Lowe.

Social media erupted with calls for Furlong to play 13 for Ireland and England centre Rachael Burford praised the skills of the 25-year-old forward.

Fellow Leinster front row Seán Cronin also showed some flair in the first five minutes of the match with a 25-meter try to open the scoring at the RDS Arena.

A further two tries came for Leinster scrum half Luke McGrath and winger Lowe while single tries were scored by Jordan Larmour, Robbie Henshaw and Jack McGrath.

Leinster went on to win the match 52-3 which has put them top of Pool 1 after the opening round of the Champions Cup, leaving the defending champions in control of the group.
