The start of the Super Rugby season might not be for another week, but Ulster and the Scarlets served up some wonderful attacking rugby in Ravenhill on Sunday. Scarlets took the lead twice with two tries from Michael Collins (not related to the Irish leader of 100 years ago) which was on either side of a wonderful individual try from Craig Gilroy.
But the best try of the game came from Ulster centre Luke Marshall. After scrumhalf Paul Marshall made the break from the halfway line, he rejected the open option on his inside - Chris Henry - for the marked man Luke Marshall.
Some delightful footwork from Marshall got him clear and it looked like the hard part was done but then the tryline came. It looked like the covering Scarlets defenders had done just enough to push Luke out before he got it down:

Fortunately for Ulster, the TMO had other ideas:
It's fantastic to see Luke Marshall back to the form that got him capped three years ago before injuries and concussion disrupted his form.
