Tactics talk: Conway's work ethic rewarded with scintillating try
Last Thursday, Andrew Conway spoke publicly about his frustration in letting a golden opportunity to impress in Chicago pass him by.
The winger was starved of possession against Italy but by his own admission, he didn't look enough to make himself involved in the play.
"I need to be better at coming off my wing - bossing work and moving lads around and getting my hands on the ball," he said.
Conway certainly did that against the USA on Saturday as he scored his second hat-trick of his professional career. His first try was a snapshot of exactly what he meant by coming in off his wing and trying to make something happen rather than waiting for it to happen.
Ireland have scored a variety of cracking tries this month and this one was their reward for looking to play the ball from deep rather than playing for territory. There has been a shift in that mentality throughout November and the attacking rugby has been a joy to watch.
