Watch: Irish rugby player Rob Kearney makes three tackles in eight seconds

Wednesday September 23rd, 2015

This is “Where in the World Wednesday,” a new feature where we’ll try to bring you something from somewhere else in the world that you probably haven’t seen on another American sports site already. Or maybe you’re more worldly than us and you have seen it already. Congratulations. This week we’ve got a pretty impressive Rugby World Cup highlight.

Ireland trounced Canada 50–7 at the Rugby World Cup on Saturday and the clip below makes it pretty clear why.

Watch carefully as Irish fullback Rob Kearney (No. 15 in green) makes three tackles in a span of eight seconds. The Canadians never stood a chance.

The Irish have the fifth-best odds of winning the tournament, according to Paddy Power. Their next match is this Saturday against lightweights Romania.
