Gala scored one of the fastest tries in Scottish Rugby history on Saturday when they crossed the whitewash after just 11.4 seconds from the match kick off againt Marr. Frankie Robson was the tryscorer after collecting, feeding his number eight, then taking the return pass.

There was a bit of controversy about the kick off, with some saying that it wasn’t a legal drop kick, perhaps understandable in real time. But as the video shows, the ball did indeed touch the ground.

In terms of the quickest tries ever, there are only two that have ever been faster in the Aviva Premiership, with Lee Blackett at 8.28 seconds in 2008 and Tom Voyce at 9.63 seconds in 2004, while in 1999 Scotland’s John Leslie scored within ten seconds from kickoff in the Six Nations.

The current record holder in international rugby though appears to be Dafyd Howells, who scored for Wales U20 after just 7 seconds in the Junior World Championship in 2014.

    I'm a traditionalist. Perhaps rugby will take a cue from baseball, as that sport went through an ugly uniform phase in the 70's and 80's. Now, and in the last twenty years, all the major league teams wear, even though polyester, uniforms that look like the old school ones prior to the 70's, which were made of lightweight wool flannel or nylon/wool blends. I noticed that Oxford and Cambridge wore traditional looking kit for their match this past December. By the way, I'm the only referee in the Northern California Rugby Union to still wear traditional kit out on the pitch. I've ordered some jerseys from Amazon UK recently that were solid colored and had no logos, made by Uneek. It's cheaper, even with shipping, to buy from the UK, instead of from an American manufacturer, a similar shirt.

    Very true sir. The other side looks like they're from Fire Island and sponsored by Fruit Loops.

    Nice kit Gala has. Shirt even has a collar, and plain white shorts! Adverts down to a minimum. The other team, wearing something that looks like a Greatfull Dead tie-died shirt, not so nice.
