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.
Try or no try…what do we think? 🤔

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.
Unless Itoje has a wingspan of 20ft, he would have never have got to him.

Rubbish decision. Itoje wasn’t interested in a tackle. Games getting soft.

Daylight robbery. Itoje had no chance.
