Keith Earls has won the Guinness Six Nations Try of Round 5 for his breathtaking finish to a super Ireland team move during their victory over England on Super Saturday.
The 33-year-old winger overcame strong competition from France duo Antoine Dupont and Brice Dulin as well as Scotland’s Huw Jones to take the top prize in the public vote.

Earls crossed the whitewash after 21 minutes to set the Men in Green on course to securing an impressive 32-18 win over the defending Guinness Six Nations champions.
It was a move straight from the training ground as Rob Herring deliberately overthrew a lineout on halfway, where Jack Conan out-jumped Tom Curry and patted the ball back inside to Earls.
The Ireland speedster ran a brilliant inside line past Billy Vunipola then showed off his fancy footwork to jink past Jonny May and hare his way to the corner all in a matter of seconds.
Earls almost scored a second try in spectacular fashion after the restart, dotting down from Johnny Sexton’s cross-field kick, only for the TMO to spot a knock-on earlier in the move.

His stunning try and overall performance even prompted Fijian great Nemani Nadolo to take to Twitter after the game and call Earls the most underrated winger in world rugby.
Earls took the Try of the Round award after receiving 41.6% of the public votes, with Dulin his nearest competitor on 26.0% for his dramatic match-winning try against Wales.
Scotland’s Jones’ own scything score against Italy secured third place with 17.0% of the public vote while Dupont’s memorable first-half try against Wales saw him pick up 15.4%.
