A Bridgend Ravens player scored one of the most outrageous tries you’re likely to see this season to win a Welsh Premiership Cup game against Swansea.
The scores were level in the final minute of the game when the hosts nudged the ball deep into the Bridgend half, before full back Edd Howley spotted space in the back field and kicked it back on the full down the touchline.

With just the opposition full back between Howley and the try line, the ball kicked up – but rather than slowing to catch the ball, he headed it like a footballer over the final defender and regathered to score an incredible solo try.
