RD BLITZ: 17-year-old beats everyone with stunning 75 metre effort

BY Grant Constable  ·  Thursday Feb 28, 2019

Here is a quick video of a submission we received for Rugbydump Blitz, featuring a very well taken try by young Marcus Roberts in a Natwest Cup match recently. Remember that you can submit your videos via Rugbydump Blitz and we’ll share the best of them.

Captain of Ampleforth College 1st XV, Marcus Roberts scored this great effort against Queen Elizabeth six form college in the U18 Natwest competition.

The 17-year-old flanker gets the ball from the restart and as you can see, shows what the modern day loose forward can do, as he gasses most of the opposition.

While some of the defensive efforts leave a lot to be desired, it’s a great display of sustained speed.

That final tackle though – is that a football manoeuvre?
