Jordan Larmour dances through Italian defence to set up Luke McGrath

Jordan Larmour continues to impress after setting up Luke McGrath for Ireland's second try against Italy on Saturday.

The Leinster utility has had to wait patiently for opportunities at international level but he showed exactly why he has a strong case to start in Joe Schmidt's side with some great footwork to unlock a stingy Italian defence.

Tadhg Beirne opened the scoring for Ireland in Chicago when he crashed over from close range before McGrath notched the visitors second try of the game after some brilliant work from Larmour.

The Leinster utility received the ball from Joey Carbery and stepped back in on the inside with a great left foot step before evading the tackle of Luca Bigi and crossing the whitewash.

Larmour is one of three players nominated for the World Rugby 'Breakthrough Player of the Year' award for 2018 and will contest the honour against South Africa winger Aphiwe Dyantyi and New Zealand prop Karl Tu'inukuafe.
