Reaction as JJ Hanrahan Sparkles on Saints Debut

Last weekend saw former Munster star JJ Hanrahan sit out Northampton’s shock defeat to Donncha O’Callaghan’s Worcester Warriors in the Aviva Premiership opener.  However, today the Kerry 22 year old came into the action early on as the Saints battled past the Newcastle Falcons and left a great reaction among supporters.

And the fans could not wait to see him in action…

When JJ first entered the fray it stood at only 13-6 to the home side but it was only a matter of time until his presence was truly felt. Munster fans look away now!

Try! Burrell barrels over after a feed from Dickson. Hanrahan the instigator of an excellent few phases from the Saints

And then again…

All sounds pretty good according to the reporter here but the Northampton faithful were equally if not more blown away by the first-five-eight.

The game eventually finished at 42-16 to Hanrahan’s men in a dream debut and he increased his popularity further by sticking around with fans to round off a great day.

Not a bad start for JJ
