Amateur hour - How to butcher a try

Amateur hour - How to butcher a try

Imagine picking up a loose ball, stepping some guys and making a great run to the line, then diving over only to lose the ball unchallenged. Odwa Odungane did it a few weeks ago. Maybe this guy was his inspiration?

This video has done the rounds on the internet, but I've added my own twist to it.. It's just not the same without the music and replays. Enjoy this legend in action.

it's rugby league where the winger is number 5, so he's not a lock!

They don't have a 15 in league. Look at Alun Wyn Jones, not all locks have to be slow lumbering.Shut up about Sidoli already, lol!

his team clearly does have a 15 and it isnt him. he's behind him not doing much in the play but hes there and wearing the fullback number. so i'd have to say he's prolly just a quick lock who got kicked of the backline for finishing mistakes like this one.

I remeber a russian guy doing that at either the murrayfield or twickernem sevens last year, ran half the length of the pitch and knocked the ball out with his own knee.
