Watch - Garry Ringrose wows the crowd with spectacular Brian O'Driscoll-esque try

The comparisons between Garry Ringrose and Brian O'Driscoll are undoubtedly premature but such talk will be a good deal less fanciful after today's events.

The 21-year-old, picked in the unfamiliar inside centre position, sliced through the Australian defence to score a memorable try at the Aviva Stadium - with the manner in which Ringrose dotted down immediately sparking comparisons with legendary 13 O'Driscoll.

Ringrose's low body shape - which was referenced as the key part of the score at half time by Ronan O'Gara on RTE - saw him elude a number of Wallaby tacklers to touch down.

The Leinster back has a bright future ahead of him, and today's try is further proof that he belongs at this level.
