Watch: Barbarians Score Unorthodox, Brilliant Try Against All Blacks

Watch: Barbarians Score Unorthodox, Brilliant Try Against All Blacks

The freewheelin' Barbarians were in London this afternoon, to take on The Mighty All Blacks. ™

Ahead of their tour of the Northern Hemisphere (France, Scotland, and Wales if you're asking), New Zealand won a typically entertaining clash 33-21 having endured a scare in the first-half. The Baa-Baas led 17-10 at half-time, the interval offering the World Champions an opportunity to straighten out the kinks in their performance, and they ultimately romped to victory. They racked up 21 points, restricting their opponents to a single try.

That try was the game's final moment...and what a try it was. It began in typically unorthodox fashion, as they elected to kick a cross-field penalty off the ground. The ball bobbled about a bit, and was eventually gathered by George Bridge, who sprinted toward the line. Happily, the try was awarded.

Here it is.
