Incredible skill by Wallaby George Smith in 2004

Incredible skill by Wallaby George Smith

Great pieces of skill in particular, what some may call the finer side of the game of rugby, have in many ways been what has driven this site. This is one such moment, coming to us from a Wallaby legend way back in 2004.

Sure, the big hits and the amazing tries are spectacular, but more often than not, what really does is the delicate pieces of skill that separate the average players from the greats.

It's with this in mind that we've dug out this clip of the multi-talented Wallaby flanker George Smith against the All Blacks in the Tri Nations in 2004.

Those of you who've been able to see Smith play on a regular basis will know that time and time again he pulls off the impossible. If it's not a big hand off and a neat grubber down the line, it's a perfectly timed pass to put a team mate into space.

On this occasion, after Smith's great strength and miracle pass inside the touch judge got it wrong unfortunately, but it's just one example of his fine skill that makes him a delight to watch.
