Shocking mistake by Brumbies fullback prevents a certain try

In this weekend’s game between the Brumbies and Highlanders, Australian winger / fullback Tom Wright had a moment to forget. 

In the early moments of the game, the Brumbies executed some nice hands in the wide channel which put Wright in the corner for what seemed to be a certain try.

However, a remarkable fumble from the fullback ruined the chance for the Australian side and left fans wondering how he hadn’t scored. 

 

One fan commented on the video questioning why Smith had not been more cautious and dived on the try line instead, “I’ve never understood how and why players do this instead of diving to the line”. 

Since the video has been released on social media, many supporters have been quick to point out the similarity to Stuart Hogg’s fumble against Ireland in the 2020 Six Nations. 

Luckily for Tom Wright however, his mishap did not affect the result with the Brumbies holding out to win 28-17 in what was a great game.

The victory was a big result for the whole of Australian rugby as it marked the first victory over a New Zealand club side by an Australian team in this year’s super round.    

Next up for the second placed Brumbies is the Hurricanes, and it will be hoped by fans of the Canberra based team that in this game their players will remember to put the ball down!
