Pro D2 player has try scoring shocker

French Rugby’s second division competition, the Pro D2, is one of the most entertaining club rugby leagues to follow.

Stacked with good teams who are all vying for a place in the Top 14, the league routinely produces highly entertaining and competitive fixtures.

With so much on the line, the league also throws up a few upsets each week, and this weekend was no different.

Taking to the pitch as the joint top-place team in the league Association Sportive Béziers Hérault, better known as simply just Béziers, had an opportunity to take sole possession of first place as rivals Vannes slipped to a loss.

Unfortunately for Béziers, they would be thumped by mid-table Dax, who ran away with a 57 – 20 victory. Taking a positive from the round, the other three sides ranked inside the top four would all lose too.

On an evening that was uber-positive for Dax, there is one moment that will haunt them and, in particular, right winger Théo Gatelier.

Finishing off a brilliantly worked try, all that was left for Gatelier to do was put the ball down over the line.

Yet, in a scene that we have seen on far too many occasions, the winger ran towards the posts to aid the conversion.

What he didn’t see in his peripheral vision was a charging defender who dumped him into touch!
