Picture: Joe Schmidt shows off some silky skills during the captain's run

The Ireland manager is not just handy with a tactics board

We're all looking to Joe Schmidt to help guide Ireland to a win over Wales this weekend, and what with this being Brian O'Driscoll's last 6 Nations, he looks to be making his case to take over from BOD with these skills that he was showing off at the Aviva earlier today.

He would be making that case for his own inclusion to himself, so we reckon his spot is pretty safe, but nevertheless, the man in charge produces a lovely little behind the back offload to leave Cian Healy for dead, and we can only presume the move ended in a try, of course.

However, the team will have to plan without having Schmidt on the field for the game and will instead have to make do with Gordon D'arcy, his beard, and Brian O'Driscoll in the centre.
