Otago flanker Adam Knight produced a sensational piece of play against Manawatu earlier today, helping his side to a 21-14 victory in the Mitre 10 Cup. It’s the type of skill we’ve seen in Rugby League’s NRL before, most notably in 2008 when Greg Inglis set up Mark Gasnier.
On this occassion it was a Scott Eade crosskick that had a little too much on it, so Knight, after letting the ball bounce, saved the play by miraculously keeping it in play. Matt Faddess pounced, and Otago had their try, much to Eade’s relief.
Knight crossed for a try himself later in the game, as Otago then defended manfully to give themselves a decent chance of finishing as a top qualifier in the championship division.
