What a try.

Charlton RFC player Alan Knuckey pulled off one of the most audacious tries we have ever witnessed this past weekend. The player/coach attempted a ridiculous over the head back heel from his own try line with seconds left on the clock and the results are spectacular.

Knuckey catches the kick and sprints through to finish under the post. In a Facebook post he writes:

Last play of the game. I look to Luke Boyns on the side line and say, shall I try the back heel.

He dares me, I accept. 15 years I’ve attempted this. Never have I finished it off.

This may be my finest ever rugby moment. Massive thanks to Instagram @bernardoodles for getting this on film.
