Midweek Madness - The Dane Haylett-Petty gift

Midweek Madness - The Dane Haylett-Petty gift

While the Reds tallied up a record total against the Force in the Super 14 last weekend, they were helped by an enterprising piece of play that went horribly wrong from opposition fullback Dane Haylett-Petty.

Down by twenty points and looking to create something out of nothing, Haylett-Petty caught the missed penalty, faked to dot the ball down, then took off.

While it all looked pretty flash and he took the Reds off guard for a short while, the pressure of Anthony Faainga coming in for the big tackle seemed to put him off, resulting in the gift for Reds flanker Scott Higginbotham.

Whether it was coincidence of not, youngster Haylett-Petty was pulled from the field directly after the try was scored. Perhaps in future hell leave those sort of tricks for the Sevens circuit, where he's already proven himself to be a talented up and coming player.
