Irish rugby winger Simon Zebo's audacious kick to catch a wayward pass in the lead-up to Ireland's second try in his Six Nations debut against Wales has now been captured in miniature.

The star's flick kick in Ireland's win over Wales in Cardiff is just one moment recreated in Lego as part of an eight-minute video celebrating the 2013 Six Nations campaign.

There are other recognisable members of the Irish side in the video including Brian O'Driscoll grimacing before jumping into the action.

Ashley Weaver, from Sully, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, has ensured Lego is not just for children but also for stocky rugby players with his efforts to celebrate the 'gentleman's game'.

He has spent hours recreating the entire tournament, including all the highs and lows, in animation format with the use of Lego.

The rugby enthusiast created the video and uploaded it to YouTube to raise money for the Salvation Army, with donations accepted on his Just Giving page online.

It also includes recreations of the Millennium Stadium 'blackout' celebration after the final game, when the stadium lights were turned off for fireworks as the Welsh team accepted their trophy.
