Jordie Barrett steals the ball to score freakish try against the Stormers

Jordie Barrett steals the ball to score freakish try against the Stormers

If you’ve been living under a rock in recent times you may not have heard of Jordie Barrett, the younger yet significantly lankier version of superstar, Beauden Barrett. Today they were both on top form for the Hurricanes – again – and Jordie scored this incredible try.

He may be more used to catching or putting in crosskicks, as we saw on numerous occassions today by him and his brother, but on this occassion the 1.96m fullback stole the ball from covering number eight Nizaam Carr for an unbelievable try.

As if Beauden terrorizing oppositions wasn’t bad enough, Jordie is still just 20-years-old.

View the clip above and be sure to catch up on the match highlights, that included some excellent play from the Barretts and the Saveas.

    Barrett's forearm connected with the head of Carr's head. In this day and age, where World Rugby act like little girls about high tackles, you'd think that that would have been the first thing picked up by the TMO and the referees watching the replay on the big screen. Penalty Stormers....

    Ah ok, least it's not just me, I figure since we're having problems, it's probably Oliver and his band of French hackers, not content with messing about with their election they turn on us humble RD users...

    In actual fact, the slow motion shows that he really does not tackle the other player, but is in fact going for the ball also. There is no arm wrap as he seems to be reaching over the player for the ball. If they TMOd for the try they probably made the same decision.

    It's because it's In-Goal. A lot of the laws only apply to the Field of Play "Ball on the Ground No Tackle, Tackle, Ruck, Maul" and a couple others. A tackle, ruck, maul, scrum can only take place in the field of play. Once you're In-Goal those laws don't apply. i.e. In the field of play if you tackle a player and take him to ground you have to immediately release him - well you're not going to do that In-Goal as he'll then just roll over and ground the ball. Hence why you're allowed to keep wresting people and fighting to hold them and the ball up. Also why if someone his brought to ground In-Goal defenders can leave their feet and add themselves to the pile to hold him up. Something you'd be penalized for In the Field of Play. The maul, ruck, and scrum keep going until the ball is over the line - then the maul/scrum/ruck are over and anyone can come in from any side. So if you're going for a push over try the defending team can dive in and try and touch the ball down first as soon as it crosses the line. Same for a maul, if the defending team is holding the ball up as soon as the ball crosses the line you as a defender you can actually come in from the attacking side to keep trying to hold the ball up as the maul as now ended and the normal offside rules don't apply. While the Law 22 In-Goal goes over how you can ground the ball, you're still back to one of the things you can do under Law 7.1 Mode of Play: "Any player may tackle, hold, or push an opponent holding the ball." Tackle is out, but holding and pushing an opponent is still on. I'm sure there are more, but those would be the key differences.

    Yeah I've been getting that a bit lately as well.

    1 - good point, although it is the defending player being tackled. 2 - don't think so. seems to be whether a knee or elbow has touched the floor (that how the determne if the tackled player has managed to get to the floor when the tackler s trying to hold them up)

    Not sure of the right answer, but maybe... 1. Different laws apply in-goal - if you had to release a player after tackling in-goal there'd be loads more tries scored as you'd rarely be held up over the line. 2. They're both still moving - do they have to be stationary for a tackle to be effected?

    Interesting point. It would be useful to know why the ref/TMO didn't say that.

    Not sure if anyone else has any issues getting onto RD but I just wanted to say it's hit and miss if it loads sometimes...

    Very nicely done, but I think it should have been a penalty to the Stormers as he tackled the 8, didn't release and ripped the ball when both on the deck?

    In the backs perhaps.... Being built like a noodle in the second row probably isn't very fun...

    Imagine Jordie Barrett being potentially your 5th choice full back (behind Smith, Dagg, Milner-Skudder and McKenzie).

    Lanky kiwi brothers tearing up the Super 15... he sure as f*ck didn't learn that in the gym. I think we have forgotten what athletes look like. Muscles are built to make up for lack of skill.... Lifting heavy things doesn't take any talent. Ripping the ball off of someone does
