Prop Ryan Bevington turns on the gas for outstanding Ospreys try

Prop Ryan Bevington turns on the gas for outstanding Ospreys try

Ospreys prop Ryan Bevington scored one of the tries of the weekend as the Welsh region claimed a 16-12 away win over league leaders Ulster at Ravenhill on Friday night. It was Ulster’s first home defeat of the  RaboDirect PRO12 season.

Ospreys lost a player to the sinbin shortly before the superb breakaway, from centre Jonathan Spratt and scrumhalf Kahn Fotuali’i, set Bevington up for a big sprint from about 40m out.

The young Welshman had a lot to do when getting the ball, especially considering he’d kept up with play from all the way back in the Ospreys half. He somehow had the legs though, and managed to finish off the only try of the game, giving his side a well deserved away win.

“When that ball reached Ryan Bevington I was never in any doubt that he was going to score, I knew that no-one would catch him,” said Ospreys forwards coach Jonathan Humphreys, who has stated that he believes Bevington is in the Gethin Jenkins mould of freakish front rowers.

“As well as being a good scrummager and good in the park, we know at the Ospreys that he’s got a turn of pace as well. The only frustrating thing about him is that sometimes when he is only average, we know that he has that kind of performance in him.

“I don’t judge Ryan by normal standards, given the athlete that he is. He can do things that not a lot of other loose-head props can do. Gethin Jenkins could do magnificent stuff, but this kid can do it all. He can scrummage, he can tackle, he can run — he’s outstanding.”

    The Modern Prop, likely a converted flanker or centre that grew too wide

    Once again another prop shows some fantastic athleticism!! I guess we all are a little guilty of thinking of props as still being like Martyn Madden and Bill Cavubati. Never the less it is great to see!

    Is it just me, or is this video the 7s highlights? Did this get changed by accident?

    I'm sure I've read somewhere in the past that he used to play centre as a kid
