Zach Kibirige wonder try for England U20 against Wales

Newcastle Falcons winger Zach Kibirige scored this incredible try for England Under 20 last weekend when they faced Wales in the Under 20 Six Nations, and won 67-7. Kibirige has since played down the moment though, saying that it was lucky.

Playing on his home ground of Kingston Park, Kibirige collected the ball just outside of his 22, then beat a whole host of tackles before bumping off the last man and diving in for the memorable try.

“It was a lucky little break to get it when I did. The space just seemed to open up, and that is what I like to do,” said the 19 year old this week.

“Being on my home ground made it a little extra special, having so many family and friends in the crowd. The fans gave me brilliant support, and playing for your country in your home region has got to be right up there,” he added.

While the tackling from Wales was questionable – at 38-0 down already – the determination of Kibirige should be admired, especially as he had to turn and accelerate, and keep pumping the legs through a number of tackles. He’s one to watch in the not too distance future no doubt.

England U20 are in a similar situation to the senior team, where they sit second on the table and need to beat Italy away this weekend to stand a chance of taking the title.
