Shane Williams scores vs Saracens

Shane Williams scores vs Saracens

Shane Williams continued his rich run of form on the weekend, scoring two tries for the Ospreys against Saracens in the EDF Energy Cup Semi-Final.

The Ospreys winger kicked ahead and out sprinted some of the quickest men on the park, including Richard Houghton and Brent Russell who are both supremely quick.

Williams somehow managed to control the ball, and, according the the TMO, get it down for a great try. After numerous replays from various different camera angles, I'm still a little unsure though, and feel that the TMO made his decision on instinct rather than clear evidence.

Should a try be given on the assumption of the try being scored? Often we all know it's a try, but the TMO can't clearly see the ball grounded and therefore has a tough decision to make, as in this case.

Great stuff once again by the little maestro though.

Final Score: Ospreys 30-3 Saracens
