A 13-year-old boy best known for an online video of his amazing rugby tricks invaded the UTV studio and wowed Tommy Bowe in his appearance on this week's The Magazine.

In the YouTube hit, Ross Doogan, who plays for Tir Chonaill RFC, coolly carries out lots of crazy trick shots on camera.

With stunning accuracy, the Donegal boy hits his target every time and seems completely unfazed by the difficulty of the shots.

Speaking on The Magazine, Ross and his brother Shaun explained how it all came about.

Shaun said he started off by making a ping pong video with his friend when he realised that his little brother's tricks were more impressive.

Ross stressed that he managed to cause no damage when making of the video.

Ireland and Ulster rugby star Tommy Bowe has even commented on Ross's skills.

Speaking to The Magazine's Sarah Travers, he said the video was impressive and that Ireland coach Joe Schmidt was bound to have seen it already.

Watching Ross kick the rugby ball over a house and land in a bin on the other side, he remarked there was "no way" he could do that at Ross's age, or even now.

"That's something else, wow," he said.

On Twitter afterwards he said Ulster Rugby "need to sign this guy up".

Before settling on the studio sofa, Ross had a kick and chase around the UTV building.

In case you missed it, you can watch Ross's crazy rugby skills below.
