It’s early in the season and there is still plenty of footy to be played, but this Waikato try could just be an early Try of the Season contender.
End-to-end rugby between Waikato and Auckland in today’s ITM Cup resulted in this beauty from Anton Lienert Brown.
Auckland nearly scored through a rampaging run by their openside flanker, however he was caught short and the ball was turned over by Waikato. What happened next was pure magic.
Auckland went on to win the fixture in the sunny conditions of Hamilton 50-28 despite this moment of magic from Waikato.
