Watch: Adam Byrne Turns On The Burners For Blistering Intercept Try Vs Connacht

The boy is lightning.

Adam Byrne is one of the last men you'd want to throw an intercept pass to on a rugby pitch, and Connacht learned exactly why as the 22-year-old Kildare man punished a mistake with Leinster's second try in the opening 10 minutes of their visit to the Sportsgrounds.

Moments after Zane Kirchner touched down in the corner to answer an early Craig Ronaldson penalty, Byrne latched on to a loose pass in the Connacht backline and he was gone.

Oíche mhaith!

Couldn't have said it any better.

Byrne was one of 13 Leinster players who had their contract renewed earlier in the month as he has proven himself to be a seriously exciting prospect for Irish rugby going forward. He's also a bloody decent good right now, funnily enough.
