Not for the first time, a sports star has helped create one of The Late Late Toy Show's most memorable moments.

A few years ago it was the appearance of Robbie Keane that produced TV gold, with a young supporter overwhelmed by the presence of the Ireland legend.

Last night, it was the turn of rugby star Jamie Heaslip to surprise someone. Evan Hoban (9) from Galway is a big rugby fan, and was a guest on the toy show, wearing his prized Ireland rugby jersey.

Little did he know that host Ryan Tubridy had planned a meeting with his rugby hero, with Heaslip arriving on set with some presents for a speechless Evan.

The youngster's brilliant reaction was one of the highlights of the night.
