Watch: Stunning Finish As Late Try Sees Ireland Beat England And Take Bronze Medal

Watch: Stunning Finish As Late Try Sees Ireland Beat England And Take Bronze Medal
By Maurice Brosnan

Ireland closed out a historic weekend with a 21-19 last-gasp victory over England in the London 7s at Twickenham today.

The result ensured Ireland would leave with the London 7s a bronze medal, having lost to Fiji in the semi-finals. Anthony Eddy's team made history when they made the last four for the first time.

In the dying moments, Ireland needed a converted try when Jordan Conroy showed immense pace with a quick side-step and break to score out wide. The conversion was by no means easy, but Mark Roche slotted it home to gift the Irish side a deserved win.

It is all the more impressive given they normally compete in the second-tier challenge circuit and were only involved thanks to an invitation.
