David Barnes nice prop try against London Irish

David Barnes nice prop try against London Irish

Following on from a great prop try scored by an Under 20 player a few days back, today we have a clip of an older campaigner showing that it's not just the young, speedy, new age props of the new generation that can finish off a try in style.

Bath prop David Barnes scored this great try against London Irish on the weekend as his side romped to a 35-22 win over the Exiles in the Guinness Premiership, leaving them without a win in their last six matches in all competitions.

Tries were scored in the first half by Barnes, discarded England winger Matt Banahan, and Joe Maddock, who scored a second, bonus-point clinching try twelve minutes from full time.

Remember that if you'd like to see those tries, and the rest of the highlights from this game and others in the Guinness Premiership, check out the Omnisport Player in the sidebar here.


For a veteran player who's used to hard graft his whole career, this was great reward for the many hours Barnes has put in. It was only his fifth try ever for Bath, but he finished like a champ, sprinting away and heading for beneath the posts. Great stuff.
