Jordan Larmour produced a moment of magic at the Aviva in Leinster’s Pro14 final victory over Scarlets.
The province overcame their Welsh opponents 40-32 in a highly-entertaining clash in Dublin, one in which Leo Cullen’s side had built up a considerable advantage before Scarlets staged a late fightback.
As the game ticked towards the hour mark, Larmour conjured up a brilliant bit of skill near the try line. The wing chased after the ball and flicked it up with one hand before downing to make it 33-11 and seemingly put the match to bed.
What. A. Try ?
The kick ?
The pick-up ?
The finish ?

Another try – via Jack Conan this time – with ten minutes remaining looked to put some gloss on the performance, but two late tries from Scarlets put a different skew on the scoreline. Despite the final score, however, Leinster were on another level and put their opponents to the sword repeatedly throughout.
The win gives the province a historic domestic and European double and caps off a dream season for Leinster and Irish rugby.
