Energia ambassador Hugo Keenan has been a key man in blue and green over the last few years.

As Hugo Keenan collected the ball from James Lowe on the inside, he looked up, saw a gap to the try-line had opened, before he powered his way through it to help Ireland on their way to the decisive third Test victory over the All Blacks.

Regathering himself after the initial elation subsided, Keenan’s thoughts must have turned to the fact that he very nearly didn’t make the plane to New Zealand due to a hand injury.
