Jordan Larmour produces outrageous O'Driscoll-esque piece of skill in training

Jordan Larmour has wowed the rugby world this season with his ridiculous footwork.

There was the jinking try against Ulster in November, which was then somehow topped by his try of the season contender against Munster on St. Stephen's Day when he beat two defenders before leaving Ian Keatley in the dirt with an outrageous right foot step.

Larmour has been a human highlight reel this season and you can only imagine that what we've seen during matches is only a sample of what he has been producing in training.

Leinster and Ireland hooker James Tracy has shed some light on Larmour's skills in training by uploading some of the 20-year-old's magic from a Leinster training session.

After receiving the ball in his own half, Larmour charges towards the defence before stepping one way and bringing his defender back the other.


Just as he gets to the line, he passes the ball to Adam Byrne who grubbers the ball towards the sideline where Larmour keeps the ball in play by flicking it behind his back, over the top of the defender, and running around to retrieve the ball on the other side before crossing the tryline.

The piece of skill is reminiscent of Brian O'Driscoll's moment of genius against Ulster when he passed the ball to himself before breaking away down the sideline.
