There is no doubt over the years we have seen some spectacular rugby played on the famous back pitches. This year we managed to captured something particularly special so much the video has seen over 90,000 views on Youtube in just a few weeks. No doubt the envy of former pupils Chris Henry or Ian Whitten this has to one of the best tries of 2017.
From deep in his own half, Dillon, with the outside of his right foot, expertly executes a chip-and-chase over a Sullivan Upper opponent before producing the most delightful volley to leave two more in his wake. Dillon sidesteps another player before passing for a team-mate to canter over the whitewash, having shrugged off a last-ditch challenge at the corner flag.
