There’s simply no catching Leinster’s Jordan Larmour once he puts the afterburners on. Just ask the Bath defenders.
The 20-year old Irish international put his side into the lead in their Heineken Champions Cup game against Bath at the Rec with a tremendous intercept try.
Larmour judged the pass from Wilson to perfection as he snatched it in mid-air and ran from the Bath 10m line to dot down Leinster’s second try of the game.
The Leinster man put on the afterburners and could not be caught as Johnny Sexton kicked over the conversion for the reigning champions to put them 14-7 up.
Bath had taken the lead in the first half after Henry Thomas was driven over the Leinster line following a couple of short carries after the home side managed to force a huge turnover on the five-metre line.
Leinster soon got back into it, however, thanks to a try from Sean Cronin and the resulting conversion from Sexton as the teams went into the break level.
Larmour then popped up with his interception try to give the away side the lead in the 50th minute, before Ross Byrne’s penalty gave them a ten point lead with just a few minutes left on the clock.
