Cedric Heymans and Colin Slade outstanding trysavers


Amongst the feast of tries and hard hitting action this weekend, there were two stand out try saving tackles that were much requested following games in both the Top 14 and the ITM Cup. Here’s a double feature as we’ve got both for you.

The first clip is a short one of French international winger Cedric Heymans chasing back to make a superb tackle against newly promoted Agen in Toulouse’s opening game of the Top 14 season, a game in which they scored six tries and came out 44-24 winners.

Brice Dulin of Agen dashed off down the wing and looked certain to score for his side when Heymans some how caught him and pulled off a miracle tackle as he knocked the ball from his grasp, preventing the try in what was a brilliant piece of play.

A few thousand miles away in New Zealand Colin Slade came up with a similar feat after North Harbour’s Ben Botica had broken away from his own 22, stepped the cover, and streaked down field for what was going to be one of the solo efforts of the season.

Slade, who seems to get better every time he turns out for his Canterbury side, sprinted back and made a perfectly timed tackle to knock the Harbour flyhalf into touch.

Both of them were outstanding efforts, so to avoid a double post, they’ve been included here with the two seperate videos. Great stuff from the Top 14 opening weekend, and more quality in the ITM Cup. If you spotted anything else you think should be featured on RD, get in touch.

    On the 1st vid: instead of passing on his right he should have passed on his left, open field with 2 Agen players...Heymans played for Agen before moving to Toulouse, bastard! Sorry i'm coming from Agen...and Heymans he's a great player
