Dion Berryman scores with incredible finish in the corner against Toulouse

Dion Berryman scores with incredible finish in the corner against Toulouse

Toulouse got their Heineken Cup campaign off to a solid start with a convincing 38-5 bonus point victory over Zebre at the Stade Ernest Wallon on Friday night. They scored six tries but the most memorable finish of the night went to Zebre’s Dion Berryman.

The French giants put the game out of reach in the first half despite Berryman’s stunning superman effort early in the second. Three tries in nine minutes got them underway as Zebre looked like they would continue to struggle in Europe, continuing with their poor form from the Pro12.

Yoann Huget finished a stunning effort for the home side after Maxime Medard and Clement Poitrenaud combined to put him away. It was a contender for try of the match, and perhaps the round, but Berryman then produced a piece of magic to get Zebre’s only try of the night.

From turnover ball he stepped Medard then shot for the corner and somehow managed to float through the air long enough to get the ball down, while the rest of his body was up and out of play.

We’ve seen this type of thing in the NRL in Australia before, but this was without a doubt one of the tries of a thoroughly enjoyable opening Heineken Cup weekend.

Yannick Nyanga scored for Toulouse later in the game, but Zebre did well to restrict the hosts from really running away with things. You can view all the match highlights on page two of this post, which includes that great Huget try that is mentioned above.
