CJ Stander belted out Amhrán na bhFiann and it made Twitter proud to be Irish
Step one to a legendary debut.
CJ Stander has been letting the Welsh know all about with a barnstorming first half on his Ireland debut, but he already had the Irish public on his side with a full-throated rendition of the Irish national anthem.
The South African-born Munster star revealed he had enlisted team-mate Donnacha Ryan to assist him with the words, and the efforts were certainly appreciated by viewers watching his enthusiastic pre-match performance.
