Joe Rokocoko sniping try vs the Chiefs

Joe Rokocoko sniping try vs the Chiefs


In this mornings Super 14 game between the Blues and the Chiefs we saw the new ELV's being put into practice and taking their toll on a lot of the fatties around the park.

With the new laws, if you're unfit, you won't last. There was some exciting play, with tap free-kicks replacing most penalty infringements, therefore we saw quite a lot of exciting, free flowing rugby, that had most of the players, including the referee, sucking in the big ones as the pace was intense at times.

One of the new laws which is a helluva positive one in my opinion is the new scrum law that requires that both sides (minus the scrum halfs) need to be 5 meters behind the eighth man's feet. This results in a lot more space on attack which gives the flyhalf a bit more freedom to control the game and distribute under a little less pressure than before.

This was nicely illustrated with this nice Joe Rokocoko try that saw him coming in from the left to finish of a nicely planned move. Yes there was a missed tackle, but the pure speed and strength of smokin Joe showed what a great finished he is.
