John Kirwan 1987

At the inaugral Rugby World Cup in 1987, John Kirwan completely carved up the opposition with some breathtaking displays of speed and agility.

Great balance, strength, and speed make him one of the legendary wingers of the game.

This highlights clip includes possibly the greatest solo try ever, scored against Italy.

  • 20 years ago, hard to believe really. Kirwan was a magnificent Wing - first of the modern Wings that had pace and size.

  • Great Player, but no way that´s the best try ever. Very nice one, but seems like he was playing alone, those italians wouldn`t tackle anyone.

  • Lovely work. But the most amazing thing in that compilation I reckon is seeing Griz Wylie crack a smile! Scary...

  • I'd happily call it the greatest solo try ever. but i gotta say, no disrespect the Italians, but the defense was poor. the last "tackle" if you want to call it that was pathetic. i know John's an amazing winger but he didn't even have to evade it. the Italian "missed" lol.
