GIF: Craig Gilroy Made The Treviso Defence Look Like A Bunch Of Eight-Year-Olds With A Ridiculous Try

You'd be forgiven for thinking that the World Cup is the only rugby show in town during these weeks. Not so. Such is the massive amount of fixtures to play in a limited time - the third round of Pro 12 fixtures are underway this weekend.

Ulster are busy getting in an early win for Ireland over Italy ahead of the main event on Sunday, with four unanswered tries leading the Ulstermen to a 27-0 lead over the hapless Treviso in Kingspan.

Craig Gilroy got the pick of the tries, with a try that you don't see in professional rugby all too often. It's one of those where a star underage player usually gets away with, but Gilroy's stepping and pace makes the Treviso defence look like they are eight years old as he ghosts by them:

It's not altogether unexpected from Gilroy, who has a knack for some spectacular tries like this.

Probably the worst part of the try, is that the stand-in Ulster kicker managed to miss the conversion.
