Editor's Viewpoint: Birth of a legend

Even in the high octane world of top class sport, Craig Gilroy's rise to stardom has been astonishing.

Only three years ago he was winning the Schools Cup with Methodist College in Belfast and now he is one of the heroes of Ulster's march to the semi-finals of the prestigious Heineken Cup.

Craig scored an exhilarating try to help defeat the much fancied Munster team at their virtually impregnable home ground of Thomond Park.

But to the young and fearless, reputations mean little and Craig scorched across the pitch from his own half to touch down.

However long he plays the game there will be few moments to better that.
