In news of the bizarre from 2005, this was one of the strangest tries you'll see for a long long time, and probably the easiest too for flanker Brent Wilson.
The two NPC sides, Otago and North Harbour, both hear a 'Phantom Whistle' that could only have been someone in the crowd having a bit of fun. Everyone stops, except for Wilson who casually strolls over the line, also looking a bit confused.
You can even see the number eight of Harbour turning around in disgust after making the pass, thinking the ref had called it forward or something.
All in all, confusion reigned, and 'What the hell is going on' is probably still a question that the players involved will be asking themselves.
