On Friday night Saracens achieved their second consecutive win over Ospreys in the Heineken Cup with a 16-13 victory, following on from their 31-26 win a week ago at Wembley. One of the highlights from the Round 3 win was this great try they scored.
The previous meeting between the two was also a close affair but at Wembley there were far more points on offer for the fans. Chris Wyles scored arguably the try of the game, but it was a team effort that had multiple phases before a touch a brilliance from that man Schalk Brits.
Featuring at least twice in the build up, it took his superb touch to break open the Ospreys defence as he drew in a few players and offloaded for Wyles, who himself ran a nice support line. Brits wasn’t only featuring in the loose, as his match stats show that he landed every lineout throw, didn’t miss a tackle, and carried 10 times.
That was in just 48 minutes of rugby, before he went off with a slight niggle. It was typical Schalk Brits, and this try is well worth watching again, or enjoying if you haven’t seen it yet.
The latest loss for Ospreys means they are now in trouble in Pool 5, and it makes things very tricky for them to progress to the next round of play.
