Known more for his incredible kicking success rate lately, Chris Paterson showed on Saturday that he still has plenty of gas in the tank by scoring this great 50 metre try vs Bath.
Paterson came on as a replacement for Ryan Lamb and with his first touch of the ball made an immediate impact. His outside break leaving the tiring Bath defence in his wake, causing the match leaders a bit of a scare with this sensational individual try.
The game could have changed from there, with the score at 10-5, but Paterson, the man who didn't miss a kick in the World Cup, ironically hit the post. Gloucester just didn't have what it took to come back and Bath came out tops.
Fantastic try, especially considering the muddy conditions, and once again it goes to show that there is no substitute for pace.
