Watch: You Won't See A Better Try Saving Tackle Than Ireland U20 Star James Ryan's Amazing Effort

Watch: You Won't See A Better Try Saving Tackle Than Ireland U20 Star James Ryan's Amazing Effort
By Mikey Traynor

James Ryan, remember the name.

Widely tipped by many (including us here at Balls.ie) to be one of Irish rugby's rising stars, the big second-row produced a moment of defensive magic in the first half of Ireland U20's Six Nations clash with France U20.

With the French player collecting an offload and skipping a good two yards past the try-line, Ryan managed to get his massive hands on the ball and keep his opponent from touching down.

Incredible. Hard to deny that it's O'Connell-esque, and indeed the half-time analysis even compared him to Paulie.

While it was certainly disappointing to see France awarded a penalty try from the resulting scrum, that was soon forgotten as the extremely impressive Ryan crossed for a try just a minute later.
