Young Prop Dean Irvine scores 90 meter intercept try

This is a quick look at a pretty amazing try scored by replacement prop Dean Irvine in last year's Oxford vs Cambridge Under 21 match at Twickenham. Oxford won 31-17.

Two week's ago we posted Rugby HQ's Top Five Intercepts Of All Time and some of you left comments linking to other great tries. One such comment mentioned an incredible intercept try scored last year by a prop of all people, so after a bit of a discussion and some digging, here it is.

The try was scored by Oxford's Dean Irvine, who admittedly looks as though he's yet to fill out, but showed serious toe after intercepting, snuffing out Cambridge's three-man overlap.

Irvine ran the full length of the pitch and maintained his impressive speed before diving in under the sticks for what was not only a fantastic intercept, but a brilliant sprint and finish by a front rower.

Thanks to Will who first brought this classic moment up in the comments
