Keith Earls became Ireland’s leading World Cup Try Scorer last weekend.
Munster utility back, Keith Earls, overtook Brian O’Driscoll as Ireland’s leading World Cup try scorer against Italy last weekend.
In an otherwise dull game, Earls scored his eight World Cup try from close range after taking a Robbie Henshaw offload.
The tournament has seen Earls return to his best form, after putting a number of serious injuries behind him.
Although the Munster player was playing at outside centre last weekend, his best World Cup try arguably came while playing on the wing during Ireland’s quarter final defeat to Wales in 2011.
The manner in which he crossed the line that day illustrated just how dangerous a finisher Earls is.
