Glasgow winger Rufus McLean showed incredible pace and some nifty footwork to score what could be a serious contender for try of the season in Glasgow’s 26-17 loss to Dragons at Principality Stadium.
Glasgow scrum-half Sean Kennedy was the beneficiary of a friendly bounce from an errant line-out pass and quickly found McLean who was immediately off to the races. The winger stepped one defender before breaking through the entire Dragons defence.
The fancy stepping continued with a double-step that skinned the remaining defenders. From there, his pace ensured all that was left to do was smile for the camera.
Oh my word…Rufus McLean! 😱

Rufus McLean, the flying squirrel (yes, I am trademarking this), with a scintillating score. Absolutely fearless.

Despite the outstanding try, the day belonged to Dragons and Sam Davies, who kicked 16 points in the win.
