Tom Croft 60m winning try - Churchill Cup

I've had quite a few requests for this 60 meter match winning try by England Saxons replacement lock Tom Croft against the New Zealand Maoris in the Churchill Cup.

He's a 1.98m youngster who weighs 104kg. He plays lock and can also play as a loose forward, as you can see by the splendid pace shown here on the right wing.

Looks like he's coasting but he outruns the Maori players. Good try.



  • Great try, not wanting to rain on his parade though but if you watch carefully, the outside centre chasing him gets cut up by the prop who misses with the tap tackle. Croft scored a similiar try against the Ospreys in the Powergen final too, hopefully that should come up here too.

  • it's a good try...

    The best england try of that game imo though was tom voyces.

    the best try was the Maori try from their own 22

  • Great try but i have to agree; i THINK the ouside center would have had a better chance of tackling him if he wasn't cut off by the prop. Great try none the less.

  • The center didnt deserve to make the tackle if a prop cut him off anyways..good try though..i did the same thing back in april at the millfield rugby festival when the usa u17 team play romanias u17 team

  • you went to millfield?? i'm turning 17 in january and i'm trying to make it to the portuguese u17 squad cause we're going to millfield this year... kinda difficult as i'm only 5ft 9 and 140lbs.
    how was the tournament last year?

  • I agree with comment #12. The prop actually covers back faster than the centre does! So the centre didn't deserve to make the tackle indeed. Good try.

  • fastest man in world rugby

  • tom croft plays open side not lock and hes the second fastest man in leicester tigers after tom varndell, whos being touted as faster than habana, so being slower than tom varndells not exactly an insult to a forward
