The 123kg Wexford man squeezed over from short-range, taking a number of Welsh defenders with him, much to the merriment of former teammates and the non-Welsh Twitterati.
As Opta pointed out, Tadhg Furlong has scored four tries for IrishRugby since the beginning of 2019, more than any other prop in Test rugby.

Ireland went into halftime at 12 – 7 up, and Furlong was on hand for a scuffle with some Welsh players as both teams made their way off the pitch.
Furlong made his test debut in Ireland’s 16-10 loss to Wales on 29 August, 2015, replacing Nathan White at tighthead prop.
He started at tight-head prop in four of Ireland’s five matches in their Six Nations grand slam-winning
campaign in 2018.
