Dillyn Leyds sets up try with one of the best passes you will ever see

Dillyn Leyds sets up try with one of the best passes you will ever see

Stormers winger Dillyn Leyds pulled off one of the passes of the decade yesterday as the Stormers beat the Chiefs 34-26 in a seven try thriller in Cape Town. The Chiefs themselves scored one of the best team tries you’ll see, but this pass in particular was out of this world.

Leyds, who spent time with the Western Force in 2014, was a prolific schoolboy rugby player with Bishops College. His highlights reel on youtube is well worth the watch, showing the kind of talent he displayed as a playmaker at a young age.

Now, still just 24-years-old, Leyds is forging a career for himself on the wing, and has had a great season so far. This pass, setting up a try for SP Marais, is arguably one of the best tryscoring passes we’ve seen in many a year.

It looked more like something out of an unrealistic rugby video game, as he somehow hit the target with a 20m reverse pass, from the ground. It was sensational play, in what was a brilliant game of rugby from both sides.

Also in round 7 action, the Sunwolves upset the Bulls, and Sonny Bill Williams made his return.

    They shouldn't be allowed to show this kind of content before the watershed.

    Out of the 2, I think "Reverse 1 hand No-look behind the back 360 rolling underflip body-varial offload" has more of a ring to it.

    Delicious match...thank you Stormers and i'm a dyed in the wool kiwi rugby fanatic but there were some magnificent periods in that match that were prime examples of why we call this code the game they play in Heaven.Not to take anything away from that beautiful pass but the Chiefs length of the field effort was not too shabby either.

    That's a "Reverse 1 hand No-look behind the back 360 rolling underflip body-varial offload" over a 20m gap, to Frontside Bodyslide on the try line... unlike a skate/snowboard video, this was done first try (and sober) Do people still say Gnarly?

    I was so taken aback when I first saw this that the 'WOW' I was trying to say ended up being some garbled nonsense. I've watched this about 10 times and I'm still gobsmacked.
