Leinster supporters have reason to be bullish at the moment as the province continues their march towards glory in both the Pro12 and the Champions Cup.

Leo Cullen's men maintained their top of the table advantage after beating the Ospreys away yesterday afternoon, and in the opposite hemisphere, they were given even more cause for celebration.

Leinster have already announced the signing of Chiefs wing James Lowe for next season, and people who aren't familiar with his work need only to watch his role in a sensational Super Rugby score to recognise his attacking talent.

Lowe linked up with his Chiefs team-mates in this outrageous end-to-end move that has already been tipped as a try of the decade contender on social media, with Will Greenwood asking if it was the 'greatest try ever'. That is probably a stretch, but it is hard to watch this try and not get excited at the prospect of Lowe bringing this exciting style to the Pro12 next season.

Remarkably, viewers watching the clash between the Stormers and the Chiefs were then treated to one of the most sumptuous offloads imaginable from Dillyn Leyds.
