Gardai were forced to intervene when members of the Connacht Rugby team confronted a traveller who was in possession of a laptop stolen from team-mate Robbie Henshaw.

Video obtained by the Sunday World shows the moment team-members – including 6ft 100kg Kiwi Bundee Aki and 6ft 86kg Kieran Marmion – arrived at the door of the McDonagh family in the Sli Burca estate in Galway seeking the return of the stolen computer.

It’s understood the team-mates arrived at the McDonagh’s home after using a ‘Find my Laptop’ app.

The confrontation took place at 5pm on Tuesday of last week – a day after Henshaw warned on Twitter that he was sending team-mate Bundee Aki after the thief alongside a picture of his broken rear car –window.
