In a jaw-dropping display of rugby finesse, Harlequins delivered a breathtaking try that left spectators and fans in awe. The play unfolded in round four of the 2023/24 Gallagher Premiership season as they faced off against the Newcastle Falcons.
The scoreline, a commanding 40-12 victory in favour of Harlequins, tells only part of the story. It was one particular moment that stole the spotlight and will be talked about for seasons to come.
The magic began when Marcus Smith, found himself under immense pressure from the Newcastle defense. With defenders closing in and limited time to make a decision, Smith unleashed a crossfield kick that seemed almost otherworldly. The precision and vision displayed in that kick were nothing short of extraordinary.
As the ball soared through the air, it had an almost magnetic connection with winger Tyrone Green who plucked the ball from the air to get it down with millimetres to spare.
What transpired next was a testament to the exceptional athleticism and coordination of these elite rugby players. Green leaped into the air, seemingly defying gravity, and secured the ball with an outstretched hand. With the crowd holding its collective breath, he landed safely, maintaining his balance.
In the blink of an eye, Green accelerated toward the try line, leaving the defenders behind, their pursuit futile. His sprint was met with cheers and applause from the stands, as the fans recognized the magnitude of what they had just witnessed. Green touched down, and the stadium erupted in celebration.
WHAT HAVE WE JUST SEEN?! 😱
