Peter O'Mahony Sets Up Wonderful Munster Try With Comically Subtle Dummy

Peter O'Mahony Sets Up Wonderful Munster Try With Comically Subtle Dummy

Peter O'Mahony is better known for his warrior-like qualities on the rugby pitch rather than his ability to make defenders miss with the ball in hand, but it was a subtle little dummy that set up Munster's first try against Ulster on Saturday afternoon and gave Stuart Barnes a good laugh in the Sky Sports commentary booth.

Well, it was in part down to O'Manhony's dummy, and largely due to Ulster winger Charles Piutau seemingly not being arsed making a tackle.

Ulster raced out of the gates and scored a try within five minutes from Rory Best, but Munster answered back moments later though Angus Lloyd.. Who is on loan from Ulster.

It was a wonderful move, and Lloyd did extremely well to get over the line, but really... Charles Piutau!?

O'Mahony well and truly gave him the eyes, because the ball barely moved at all! One subtle show of a pass and he gained 30 meters in a matter of seconds.

That was a blip in an otherwise impressive half of rugby for Ulster, but at half time Stephen Ferris was not about to let Piutau off as he singled out the Kiwi for criticism.

He was on the jog. Literally on the jog going back to the tryline, that needs to be addressed.

It's one he's going to have to hold his hand up for when he watches it back, and while big Pete O'Mahony has played on the wing for Ireland before in that crazy Six Nations injury-fest with Italy a few years back, we don't expect to see him leaving many wingers for dead for the rest of the season.
