Dan Biggar Displays Ultimate Show Of Sportsmanship At The Aviva

Ireland and Wales are in the midst of a heated battle at the Aviva Stadium as the two sides round off their summer warm-up series before heading to the World Cup in Japan.

Ireland looked the better side throughout the majority of the first half despite, again, losing two of their own lineouts.

Rob Kearney opened the scoring for Ireland finishing off a well-worked team move. Ten minutes before the half though Wales scored a try of their own through Hadleigh Parkes.

Wales could have hit back earlier through Dan Biggar who picked off a Johnny Sexton pass before racing to the line.

Biggar looked certain to score but Robbie Henshaw tracked him the whole way before making a last-ditch tackle. Henshaw was aided by Kearney who then made up impressive ground to stop Biggar from grounding the ball.

From the TV set, it was clear that no try should be given but the referee did not have the best of views. However, Biggar displayed the ultimate show of sportsmanship by informing the match officials that he had not grounded the ball and that the try should not be awarded.

Top class from Biggar!
