Exeter winger Tom O’Flaherty scored unquestionably one of the tries of the Premiership season on Saturday against Bath at Sandy Park.
Fly half Joe Simmonds spotted space out wide and produced a lovely weighted crossfield kick to O’Flaherty on the left wing half an hour into the game.
Great piece of skill from Tom O’Flaherty to volley Joe Simmonds’ cross field kick into the goal area and score! Did it at pace as well.

O’Flaherty then showed incredible improvisation to kick the ball on the volley while running at full pace down the wing.
The ball was weighted perfectly into the in-goal area and O’Flaherty demonstrated his lightning pace to reach the ball first and complete a scintillating try.
We have an early contender for try of the season 🤯
Just look at the skill from Tom O’Flaherty here 👏
The volley, the chase, just everything about this is magnificent 🤩✨ pic.twitter.com/xTNe7xsCkCADVERTISEMENT
