Ireland’s November Internationals Player Of The Series Is An Obvious Choice
The real deal.
A number of players were given opportunities with Ireland during this month’s November International Series, but none took their chance quite like Ulster winger Jacob Stockdale.
While the likes of Bundee Aki and Andrew Conway shone brightly, and Rob Kearney, Johnny Sexton and CJ Stander among others returned to impressive form, Jaco Stockdale is the name on everyone’s lips after his incredible performances against South Africa and Argentina.
The monstrous winger is now nailed on to start on one of the wings for next year’s Six Nations, and deservedly so. Three tries in two games, with 166 metres made and seven defenders beaten says it all really.
The youngster has been playing with a smile on his face in recent weeks, and this has been reflected in his fearless attitude on the pitch. He’s got all the attributes to become a world class winger, and we’ve absolutely no doubt he’ll get there.
Check out his stats from the two games he played against South Africa and Argentina. They make for some impressive reading.
