Prop Brendon Edmonds finishes fantastic length of the field Highlanders try

Prop Brendon Edmonds finishes fantastic length of the field Highlanders try

The Highlanders ran in seven tries to add further misery to the Sharks’ poor Super Rugby season so far. The home side won 48-15 in Dunedin, and scored some sensational tries in the process. This one, finished off by prop Brendon Edmonds, was one of the best.

The Highlanders scored three tries in the first half, going into the break with a comfortable 24-10 lead as the visitors struggled to get into the match. They scored another four tries after the break, as things went from bad to worse for the Durban based side.

As the Sharks attacked with fifteen minutes left, they came within meters of crossing but threw a loose ball. Great passing and big tackling featured prominently as the Highlanders counter attacked to set up one of the most entertaining passages of play in the match.

They kept it alive through multiple phases with some quality offload play, before Patrick Osborne ran a great angle, knowing he had impressive flanker Dan Pryor there in support. Pryor was tackled but had replacement prop Edmonds in the support line, and a sensational team try was scored.

Edmonds’ celebration, for those wondering, is apparently something to do with wild boar hunting, which is apt seeing as close to the line with a try in sight, props are probably as tough to stop. He got the finishing touches, but it was a beautifully constructed team try.
