Harlequins centre Joe Marchant shocked commentator Ugo Monye on Saturday with a massive one-armed lineout pass against Bath.
Quins had a lineout inside their own half and rather than wait for the forwards to set, Marchant took it quickly with a 50-yard pass to his teammate.
The unorthodox tactic paid off and Monye was left laughing and applauding the young centre in the second half of the game.
This is insane! A one-handed 50-yard throw 🤯
