Is this the most original piece of skill you have seen in a rugby game?
Dublin is hailed as a hotbed for schools rugby, with the Leinster Senior Cup respected as one of the most competitive of its kind on the globe.
Yesterday, two of the pre-tournament favourites faced off in the first round, as Terenure faced St Mary’s to advance to the quarter-finals.
These academies of Irish rugby have provided many the great player to Leinster and Ireland over the years, with Terenure producing the likes of Girvan Dempsey and Conor O’Shea, while St Mary’s alumni include Jonathan Sexton, Denis Hickie, Shane Jennings and Tony Ward.
From this evidence, there is plenty more talent coming through, and this quick thinking from Terenure’s Sam Dardis, bouncing the ball of an opponents head, is simply sublime.

OK, it is debatable whether it was intentional or not, but we will give him the benefit of the doubt for how he stepped the fullback seconds later, turning on the wheels to touch down under the posts.
It was filthy.
Sorry Kiwis, but this doesn’t happen in New Zealand schools rugby every week.
