Young Lions speedster Aphiwe Dyanti scored one of the best tries of the season in Saturday’s Super Rugby semi-final against the Waratahs in Johannesburg. His sensational individual effort, from his own 22, helped his team to a 44-26 win and a place in their third consecutive final. 

His try was named the Try of the Weekend, and will go down as one of the best of the season.

The Lions were sweating on him recovering from a hamstring issue that forced him off the field ahead of halftime. But coach Swys de Bruin today confirmed that he will travel with the team to New Zealand.

The in-form Dyanty will be a crucial factor when the Lions hope to upset the Crusaders in this coming weekend’s Super Rugby final. The final take’s place on Saturday 4 August at AMI Stadium in Christchurch. Kick off is at 19:35 local/09:35am CAT

    He's scored some fantastic tries, but the kid can tackle too. Sadly this hit went largely unnoticed, because the whistle went for another infringement and we never went back for a proper second look. But Johnny stayed down, looking dis-Mayed, for some time afterwards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoEZum3I-60

    This guy is thrilling to watch. And to think he packed it in after not making his school's first team. Decided to focus on other sports and, later, on his university degree. But friends convinced him to help out in the varsity residence team where he was spotted by the university coach. A few months later he was playing for the Lions, and a year later for the Springboks.

    Why wasn't that a power try? Or am I missing something?
