Video: Martias Moroni Executes Try-Saving Tackle On Nehe Milner-Skudder

When Michael Cheika named his star-studded Barbarians back-line for their tie against Argentina, many expected them to cause their South American opponents all sorts of problems, and this was certainly true to an extent, as the Baa-Baas ran in 31 points against the Pumas.

However, the fourth place finishers at the World Cup did enough damage on the scoreboard themselves, falling just one point short of a half century. The Twickenham try-fest was full of international talent, and some of the world’s best players were on show.

Nehe Milner-Skudder, the story of 2015, was in no mood to let up after putting in an impressive tournament in England last month. The Hurricanes flyer had to be given special attention, naturally enough, and broke looking set to go over the line.

However, nobody gave Martias Moroni the memo, and he made a miraculous try-saving tackle to stop the Kiwi flyer.

What a tackle. Just as Milner-Skudder thought he was through and was pinning his ears back, he was caught.
