IT’S NOT EVERY day you see a 120 kilo prop steaming all the way to the try-line from the 10 metre mark.
With a Heineken Cup fortnight on the way, maybe Shane Jennings’ decision to wave Willem Nel through was more prudent than it seemed on first viewing.
Once the big man had built up some momentum, he looked unstoppable. Andrew Conway couldn’t catch him, Eoin Reddan tried… and got taken for a ride over the try-line.
It was mere consolation for the Scottish side, however, taking them up to 16 points after Leinster had already notched 31 and a bonus point in last night’s Pro12 clash at Murrayfield.
