Gethin Jenkins charge down, kick ahead, try!

Gethin Jenkins charge down, kick ahead, try!

Welsh front rower Gethin Jenkins is fast making a name for himself as one of the best props around. For a man his size he has amazing ball skills and can move quicker than most men who ply their trade in the front of the scrum. Just ask Ireland.

As Ronan O'Gara went to clear, Jenkins came out of nowhere to charge down the ball, chase it hard, and then dribble it with control that countryman Ryan Giggs would be proud of. Falling on the ball to score a fantastic try, O'Gara stood on his fingers, which prompted the ball throwing.

All in good spirits though of course.

This must be another contender for one of the best prop tries ever.

Nice to see some good prop tries (especially since I'm a prop myself).

rog had the right arse that day. he must have done something for geth to throw the ball at him. later, rog has a bit of shout and a shove at morgan when the ball is dead. eventually taken off because he is becoming a liability.

That was the best day since the seventies for welsh rugby. Almost cried with happiness that day. BTW, R'OG clearly jumps on Gethin's fingers! Watch it again and see the vicious leprechaun go!

I dont know about standing on his fingers, but Gethin Jenkins said that R'OG had called him a 'fat bastard'.So when he scored Gethin threw the ball at him and said 'Who's the fat bastard now!?'

Fabulous try by Gethin Jenkins here and this try had everything,speed,football skills and finally Gethin Jenkins falls over the ball to score the try. I reckon that's the best prop try ever!.
