Watch: The Incredible 4th Ireland Try That Was Started And Finished By Jacob Stockdale
By Arthur James O'Dea

After securing a record-breaking defeat of South Africa for Ireland, the disappointing performance of the visitors does not completely detract from some stellar play from the hosts.

Comfortably ahead by the half way mark, the resolve of the Springboks was found largely wanting as the game eased further and further away from them.

Contrarily, Ireland, most notably the reinforcements they brought off the bench, appeared keen to continue their impressive performance - had their footballing alter-egos not been on right after, we could have watched this all night.

This ruthlessness was masterfully demonstrated in their final try of the night; an effort that saw Jacob Stockdale continue his fledgling Irish career in style.

Picking up on a poor South African pass deep within the Irish half, Stockdale began his run in a manner that seemed thoroughly unappealing to the wearying Boks.

Tackled, but still thinking, Stockdale is the man who would be on the end of the chain when a string of passes across the South African line found them lacking the necessary hunger.

It was a perfect try to see out what was a near perfect performance for the hosts - you can watch it below.
