Watch: Irish Sprint Prodigy Aaron Sexton Flashes Afterburners For Ulster A Try

Aaron Sexton is arguably the fastest man in Irish sport. The 20-year-old ran the 10th fastest 100 metres in Irish history before hanging up the sprint spikes to join Ulster.

A massive loss for Irish athletics looks like it will be a huge gain for Irish rugby. Sexton made his Ulster senior debut two weeks ago, but over the weekend, in a game for the Ulster A team against the Munster As, he provided the world a glimpse of his incredible speed, collecting a box kick before casually stepping around a substitute prop and blasting over the touch line.

Now Munster's defence in the video clip above isn't exactly magnificent but holy God, Sexton has jets. The likes of Chris Cloete, Tommy O'Donnell and Darren Sweetman were playing for Munster A that night so it's not as if Sexton is playing the Ballymena Bs here. Sexton generated so much momentum, he nearly dove out of touch. Check out the reaction of the Ulster subs in the background of this photo.

The Ulster As won 22-10. We can't wait to see more of this.
