Watch: Jordan Larmour Sets Up Try Vs Italy With Beautiful Step

Ireland are currently in action against Italy at at Soldier Field in Chicago.

Joe Schmidt’s side have been dominant for long periods in the match, but approaching half time, that wasn’t reflected on the scoreboard.

Tadhg Beirne went over within five minutes and Joey Carbery converted for an early 7-0 lead, but Italy have since played their way into the game.

After a sustained period of attack in Ireland’s half, the Azzurri had a knock-on right before the try-line, and Ireland pounced at the other end of the pitch.

Andrew Conway caught the ball from the Italy scrum-half’s kick-out, and from there a series of passes found Jordan Larmour. The Leinster man side-stepped his way past three Italians and the change in momentum found him well on his way to the try-line.

One well-timed pass to Luke McGrath later, and Larmour’s club teammate was over for Ireland’s second try of the game.

Michele Campagnaro clawed back the deficit to 14-7 just before the break, but Larmour’s moment of magic was certainly the highlight of the first half.
