Video: A 6 Foot 8 Inch Second Row Shouldn't Be Able To Score A Try Like This

sam whitelock try

Sam Whitelock is the most decorated of four rugby playing brothers. The 26 year old has 63 international caps, stands at 6'8'' and weighs over 17 stone. He had scored a grand total of ten tries in 159 games.

But none will ever match this effort. Most forward tries end up as a crawl over from a few yards, but this is special.

60 metre tries are special anyway, but when a gangly 6'8'' second row breaks off and throws a step before crashing over. Wow.

The reaction of the crowd, the commentators and the bench especially sum up how ridiculous this try was.


Judge it for yourself:


It's impressive, but Paul O'Connell could do that.
