Taranaki lock produces best around the corner offload you're likely to see

Taranakai won a hard-fought contest against Counties Manukau in week five of the Mitre 10 Cup on Wednesday. The moment of the match came shortly after kickoff as Leighton Price got the scores going with this beautiful offload, surely a contender for Try of the Season.

The try came from a bad error by Piers Francis, who we saw last week being hurdled as he attempted a tackle on Wellington’s Vaea Fifita.

This time he coughed up the ball in his own half, and second rower Price was quick to swoop and off to the races. Seeing his window closing, he pulled in multiple defenders and completed the monster wrap-around pass to Sean Wainui for the score.

Watch how he delays it perfectly and knows exactly where Wainui is the whole time.

Taranaki led at the half 20-7, but Counties would come back to take the lead 26-20.

Taranaki went on to seal the deal late with a try from Mitchell Crosswell and a conversion and penalty from Marty McKenzie, for a final score of 30-29.

Another week, another brilliant piece of skill from New Zealand.

    Oh I dunno, I did get a couple bites... But alright, I'll concede, it was a very skillful offload and thanks for sharing RD...

    Tried to bite tongue but come on DrG, that is some pathetic trolling right there. Uncalled for, not funny and tbh, pretty annoying on such a positive piece of play.

    Yawn. So an innocuous post on a sweet offload leads to rehashing the Franks incident? Mate, you're better than this, I think. We get it, you're pissed about Franks getting no punishment, as would most rugby fans, and you're well justified to feel that way. But continuing to harp on it makes you sound like the old man telling the kids to get off his lawn. The Ugalde incident for Brive just a few days ago was just as bad, if not worse, but your only comments there had nothing to do with the question at hand, but snarky comments about NZ. The citing process is broken, and you've had good comments about that before, but I think you're starting to see shadows where there are none.

    Hmmm 0:45 seconds Taranaki 3 comes in and looks to gouge an opposing player... Would like it if we could get some clarification on this kiwi custom please...
