Since arriving in the summer of 2017, John Cooney’s influence at Kingspan Stadium has been considerable. Indeed, given his consistent heroics, it has been virtually unparalleled.

It says much, therefore, of the recent performances of Nathan Doak through Cooney’s recent injury absence that the side’s matchwinner has oftentimes still been the man in the No.9 jersey.
