The Wallabies were in command against Canada in their encounter on saturday. As they attempted the ever popular crosskick, big Canadian winger Justin Mensah-Coker ruined their plans of the try by showing a true piece of athletic ability and class.
Diving backwards and to the side with his eyes on the ball, and with the rain coming down, Mensah-Coker makes a spectacular catch that would have made Peter Cech proud.
Great skill and one can't help comment that it looks a bit like a football, or even a gridiron catch, taking into account the part of the world that the player comes from.
Fantastic commitment shown by the big guy, getting up high to catch it and importantly calling for the mark at the same time.
Final Score: 37-6 to Australia
