The potential return of one of Leinster's greatest ever players excited many people last Sunday, but why is Isa Nacewa so cherished?

Was it because you could have put him with the Willow Park U8s during the international window and he'd manage to bring Leinster to a bonus point win? Or maybe it was because the flying Kiwi brought excitement and success to a Leinster team that was crying out for it.

Signed by Michael Cheika in 2008, his Leinster career started the year they won the Heineken Cup the first time and coincided with Leinster's greatest ever period in their history ending after Leinster won the Challenge Cup and Pro 12 final.

Here are five moments of brilliance that show why Nacewa is a Leinster hero.

1. Try v Scarlets

The way he retains composure while being held in the air and still manages to dot the ball down? Special.

2. Try v Ospreys


Only Leinster could respond to a team scoring points on them by scoring from the kickoff.

3. Step and try v Saracens

It's so obvious what's he's going to do, and yet you can't do anything about it,

4. Bath stepping

No words necessary.

5. Try v Leicester

Most Leinster fans' favourite Isa Nacewa moment is when he bamboozled the Leicester defence on route to Leinster winning the 2011 Heineken Cup.
