Dan Tuohy takes on New Zealand during Ireland’s 2010 tour

When Dan Tuohy scored a try just 70 seconds into his Test career, the sight of a galloping No.18 crossing the whitewash caused the Kiwi commentator on the day to exclaim: “Gee whizz, it’s a try for Shane Jennings.”

The man himself could understand the mix-up. Despite representing Ireland against the All Blacks, the Ulster lock was far from a household name. After all, just 12 months before taking on the sport’s most feared side in the green jersey, he had been playing in England’s second tier with the Exeter Chiefs.
