101 caps (11 from the bench) & 45 tries have we ever seen a more prolific Irish try scorer?

When he spreads his legs like that youd need dynamite or the Highland Light Infantry to shift him.

Just finished reading Donal Lenihan's book which is excellent by the way & one of the interesting comments is that Zebo although skilful "lacks out and out pace".

Having seen him not able to break away from Italian defence this appears to be true.

I would have thought he was "all about the pace, bout the pace".
Then during the Scotland game he kicked long down field and was outpaced by a least one jock,
I assumed at the time he was carrying a knock.
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

Since the thread has been bumped the stat should be updated.
101 + 11 caps - 7797 minutes - 51 tries. - a try every 152 mins on the pitch
Unrivalled?

How many 6N tries? Out of curiosity?

Amazed to see only one 6N try against Wales in 2013.
