Forwards aren’t necessarily known for their finishing techniques.
In particular, it’s not very often you’ll expect to see a 6 ft 6 in back-rower launching himself horizontally to touch down in the corner.
Well however rarely it is, Saracens unit Theo McFarland did exactly that at the weekend.
With the ball held in one hand, the Samoan international intercepted the ball on his own 40m line to outpace Northampton scrum-half Alex Mitchell to touch down in the corner.
His 60m run ended with the ball calmly place in his right hand, before acrobatically launching himself into the air to touch down in tremendous fashion.
Theo McFarland was FLYING! 🛫
What a break and try for the @Saracens man 🙌#GallagherPrem pic.twitter.com/RJhlou4u7X

His second try of the game saw Saracens extend their lead, to dent the Saint’s playoff hopes.
