Ryan Cross shows why you should always chase a penalty kick

Ryan Cross shows why you should always chase a penalty kick

It’s the weekend and a big one for rugby around the planet. Unfortunately there’s been a few delays on here in terms of updates and previews, but we’re back at it now, with this great try from last weekend.

If you’ve checked RD in the past day or so you will have noticed that despite normal activity on Facebook and Twitter , the site hasn’t received too many new updates. The reason is that unfortunately the Blogger service, which is the content management system behind the site, was down for over 20 hours.

This meant it was impossible to update or edit anything on the site. What is also reinforces is the need to get the new site up and running, and off of this CMS, asap. That’s going to become a much higher priority over the next few weeks, so please bear with us as some hard graft is done behind the scenes, that will no doubt bring you a far more enjoyable RD experience in future.

Speaking of hard graft, this is a try that some of you wanted to see again from last weekend. It features Ryan Cross of the Waratahs, playing against his old side, the Force, scoring a try that came directly from a penalty attempt on goal. We saw something similar with Toulouse recently from Florian Fritz against Leinster , and with Ollie Phillips for Stade Francais last year.

What it shows, whenever this happens, is that it is definitely worth chasing those long kicks at goal. Every now and then one of them might just come off, and you’ll more than likely earn your side a much needed seven points that you might not have had otherwise.

So once again, thanks for the patience, and enjoy the busy weekend of rugby.
