WATCH: England's Harlequins score ridiculous try

2018-10-12 10:27

Cape Town - England's Harlequins scored a bizarre try in this past weekend's Aviva Premiership clash against Saracens.

Harlequins went on to lose the match 25-20, but in the years to come it will be remembered for Joe Marchant's amazing try. 

With Harlequins leading 13-12, flyhalf Marcus Smith lined up a penalty from out to left to extend the lead. 

Smith pushed his effort and missed to the right, and it looked like the ball would go out over the dead ball line to give Saracens a 22m drop out. 

Instead, outside centre Marchant anticipated that the ball would be held up in the wind and he charged towards the try line before taking a superb catch to stun the Saracens defence and score. 

It may not have been enough to secure victory, but it is not every day you see a try like this one.
