Phil Bennett's classic try against Scotland in 1977

This is one of those tries that you can watch over and over again. Sheer brilliance by the Welsh against the Scots at Murrayfield in 1977.

The Bill Mclaren commentary says it all, but some brilliant stepping to start it, and right at the end incredible hands, followed by one of the steps of the century that leaves the Scottish defenders lying on the floor helpless.

Phil Bennett scores under the posts to finish off what is commonly known and voted for as one of the best tries of all time.

No replays and not amazing quality, but nevertheless, enjoy this remarkable bit of classic stepping and passing from the team that dominated in the seventies.

Note: As with all videos featured on here, if anyone has a better quality version of this, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Thanks.

    PS; seen this a few times, on first glance the pass does look forward and perhaps was, but i think the ref gave the benefit of the doubt to the attacking team which I'll take anyday.

    "Gerald Davies, what's he doing there?" 2 crazy side steps, a vicious stiff arm and tremendous offload, that's what. Man I wish rugby was still played like this. Fun to watch, must have been fantastic to play.

    immaculate hands for that last pass before the final step, he must have thrown that knowing his team mate was there without even looking!
