We all remember tugging on our idols jerseys looking for autographs in our youth and the joy it brings when you get their scribble... but some autographs are more special.

Young Connacht fan Adam Joyce was muscled out of getting a coveted signature from Ireland star Robbie Henshaw at the Sportsgrounds but the story didn't end there.

A friend of a relative of Adam got in touch with Henshaw but the man who scored the winning try in our Six Nations victory over England last year delivered much more than an autograph.


Here's the Christmas card that Robbie sent to Adam in December as he rehabbed from an injury which he is expected to recover from in time for the Six Nations. His class extends way beyond the rugby pitch.
