Unreal solo try by Chris Latham vs the Highlanders in 2005

Unreal solo try by Chris Latham

Hard running Australian fullback Chris Latham will be on his way to English club side Worcester Warriors next season after signing a two year contract earlier this week.

32 year old Latham is in the peak of his career currently, and despite an offer from the Australian Rugby Union to get him to stay, has decided to further his career with a new challenge in the English Premiership.

Latham will join other Southern Hemisphere stars such as Rico Gear, Greg Rawlinson, Sam Tuitupou, Thinus Delport, and Loki Crichton to name a few. Latham, referred to by some as the best fullback in the world, is raring to go, stating that he's looking for a new challenge at this stage in his life after spending a highly successful ten years with the Queensland Reds and the Wallabies.

John Roe, Reds teamate and captain, says that Latham, the second highest try scorer in Australian test history, is in the best shape of his life and will add huge value to the Warriors ambitions.

Immense strength and speed on the counter attack, Chris Latham would pretty much walk into any international side with his freakish talent, speed, and determination.

Look at the fantastic leg drive that got him to the tryline in this 2005 Super 12 game against the Highlanders.

Note that he palms off a forward, has a winger on his back, palms off the fullback and still manages to score this incredible Reds try that sends the Aussie commentary team into raptures.

don. the humor was that because his head was so close to the flag if he had an afro it would have touched it and not been a try. lighten up mate.

great effort for the trygreat to see some wingers toughing it out against some forwardsfor the record though that number 6i think it was put out a bad attempt to tackle, if he had have gone low i doubt the tackle would have been brokenall in all its a great tri, good to see he'll be going to the part of the world where he will be very much appreciated, seems to me there is less apreciation for southern hemisphere players when it isnt an international testcant wait to see him playing again

It was pure agression that did it, they weren't as committed to tackling him as he was to scoring. The opposition wasnt expecting him to go for it and were too busy worrying about passing it along the line. Latham is as immense as ever, RD should have linked this with his touchline run and score against wales.

Latham's great try against Wales is also on here. You can view it by just click on the Chris Latham label under this video. We'll hopefully get the Cedric Heymans try up soon, as well as some other great moments from the weekend. Being this time of year things are hectic and take longer though obviously, but hang in there and we'll be back to normal soon. :)

Australian commentry is just amazing "switched it into low-range four-wheel drive and chugged away", pure quality. Our commentators in England don't get at all excited even when we score.

the humour in the afro comment is that if he had an afro his hair would have touched the corner flag and he would then have been out-no try
