Fans agonise over incredible Morahan wonder try being harshly ruled out

BY Shaywaterworth  ·  Sunday Aug 16, 2020

Former Wallaby winger Luke Morahan had an incredible individual try ruled out against Saracens on Saturday due to a block on Maro Itoje.

The Bristol star caught a clearance box kick on the touchline 40 metres out and showed fantastic balance and agility to slice through the Saracens defence and score a wonder try.

Unfortunately a slight block by Charlie Thacker on Saracens lock Itoje meant the try was ruled out by the officials for obstruction.

Despite this setback the Bears went on to beat the reigning champions 16-12 at Ashton Gate in the first round of the Gallagher Premiership since lockdown.

Morahan, 30, scored a similarly brilliant try back in 2013 against the British & Irish Lions when he was playing for the Queensland Reds which remains one of the greatest solo efforts in recent years.
