Ex-Ireland hooker breaks down high-risk Munster lineout tactic and skills of O'Mahony (4)

Munster were comfortable winners against Connacht in the URC last weekend, with captain Peter O’Mahony coming in for praise for an acrobatic lineout move late on in the contest.

Former Ireland international Bernard Jackman was full of praise for the veteran as he starred for his side in a 47-12 win over the Westerners.

While Munster were home and hosed long before the finale, a late lineout move from Graham Rowntree’s men caught the eye of ex-hooker Jackman.

As Eoghan Clarke prepared to throw the ball in, Munster were busy reshuffling their lineout unit. Tadhg Beirne made a move underneath and O’Mahony was eventually propelled into the air at the back of the pile.

A bullet throw from Clarke passed all the way towards the back, where O’Mahony had risen and stretched every sinew to claw the pass into his control.

It was a high-risk, high reward intervention as he descended and gave his side the platform in the maul close to the try line and Jackman was impressed.

He told RTE’s Against The Head programme: ‘There were a few bits of real skill. For a hooker, the easiest throw is a jump throw, but Munster used a throw-jump here.

‘You see Eoghan Clarke, he has to throw this to an imaginary ‘x’ in the sky. They get set, they make the call, Tadhg Beirne makes a small movement forward, and then the ball is thrown.

‘Just look at how late Peter O’Mahony gets up for the ball here – he’s tracking it all the way.

The timing is actually slightly off, but he never gives up on it. He’s going backwards and he catches it one-handed, it’s a brilliant piece of skill.

‘Peter O’Mahony is so brave, he has total trust in his lifters to bring him back down to safety and a lot of players won’t chase the ball to the extent that he does.’
