A certain,rugby star made one rugby fan's dream come true on the Late Late Toy Show.
Nine-year-old Evan Hoban was reviewing books on the Toy Show and Ryan Tubridy had a special treat for him.

Evan's favourite player Jamie Heaslip surprised the super fan with a superb early Christmas present.
Heaslip handed over the jersey he wore for Ireland's game against Australia last week and even signed it for Evan.
Social media was quick to agree that Heaslip was a fine role model for Evan and all the young people watching.

And everyone got a laugh from Evan mentioning his mother's feelings toward Heaslip.
