Jamie Henry’s unbelievable finish!

We’ve seen Jamie Henry do this before…..what a finish!

Posted by World Rugby Sevens Series on Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Japan’s Jamie Henry scored this unbelievable try against Canada at the Dubai 7’s, being named as one of the top tries of the tournament. Incredibly, it wasn’t the first time he has done something like this. He actually scored a near identical try last year in Tokyo.

On that occasion it was against South Africa and in the opposite corner, but it was equally impressive. While scoring like this is more commonly seen in rugby league than union, this is clearly something Henry has mastered, and sides no doubt practice it these days.

There was some concern over the legality of the try in Dubai, but World Rugby Law 22.12 states:

“If the ball or a player carrying the ball touches a flag or a flag (corner) post at the intersection of the touch-in-goal lines and the goal lines or at the intersection of the touch-in-goal lines and the dead ball lines without otherwise being in touch or touch-in-goal the ball is not out of play unless it is first grounded against a flag post.”

Based on that, which says nothing about touching the tryline and corner flag simultaneously, the try was okay to be awarded. It was a very near thing though, so opinions may vary.

    Brilliant try, simply brilliant. I also really like seeing the tackling player actually getting his arms around rather than just smashing him with a shoulder. Everything about that was champagne.
