Electric Reinach embarrasses 108kg number eight and runs 80 metres to score stunner

Montpellier scrum half Cobus Reinach scored an incredible solo try against Racing 92 on Saturday which helped them to a fantastic result in Paris.

Reinach showed great strength to strip Racing number eight Yoan Tanga Mangene as the Frenchman carried from the back of a scrum and used his incredible pace to beat the scrambling defence to the try line.

This try just before the half time break was one of two tries scored by the South African in the first 40 minutes and helped Montpellier to a 21-32 win at Paris La Défense Arena.

Reinach, 31, has 18 Springboks caps to his name and after full time South Africa captain Siya Kolisi greeted the scrum half to take selfies at the side of the pitch.

The half back played a significant role in Kolisi’s squad in the final Test of this summer’s three-match tour against the British & Irish Lions and was also a member of the 2019 World Cup heroes in Japan.

Reinach’s father, Jaco, also represented the Springboks but more notably held the South African record for the 400m for an amazing 16 years before it was eventually broken in 1999.

This explains the incredible pace of his son Cobus, who is without doubt one of the quickest scrum halves in the game. The following five-minute montage demonstrates just how devastating his pace really is at both club and international level.
