Unreal solo try by Chris Latham

Chris Latham Worcester Warriors Hard running Australian fullback Chris Latham will be on his way to English club side Worcester Warriors next season after signing a two year contract earlier this week.

32 year old Latham is in the peak of his career currently, and despite an offer from the Australian Rugby Union to get him to stay, has decided to further his career with a new challenge in the English Premiership.

Latham will join other Southern Hemisphere stars such as Rico Gear, Greg Rawlinson, Sam Tuitupou, Thinus Delport, and Loki Crichton to name a few. Latham, referred to by some as the best fullback in the world, is raring to go, stating that he's looking for a new challenge at this stage in his life after spending a highly successful ten years with the Queensland Reds and the Wallabies.

John Roe, Reds teamate and captain, says that Latham, the second highest try scorer in Australian test history, is in the best shape of his life and will add huge value to the Warriors ambitions.

Immense strength and speed on the counter attack, Chris Latham would pretty much walk into any international side with his freakish talent, speed, and determination. Worcester have got themselves a real catch by signing him.

Just look at this fantastic leg drive which got him to the tryline in this 2005 Super 12 game against the Highlanders. Note that he palms off a forward, has a winger on his back, palms off the fullback and still manages to score this incredible Reds try that sends the Aussie commentary team into raptures.

  • lol afro comment hehe

    but, its a shame he's leaving the wallabies and supers 14 altogether

  • I don't see any humor in the afro comment...

    But that was one heck of a try I tell you...that's pure power.

  • thank god he's decided to cum to a real league. The prem is the place to be, ££

  • don. the humor was that because his head was so close to the flag if he had an afro it would have touched it and not been a try.
    lighten up mate.

  • great effort for the try
    great to see some wingers toughing it out against some forwards
    for the record though that number 6i think it was put out a bad attempt to tackle, if he had have gone low i doubt the tackle would have been broken
    all in all its a great tri, good to see he'll be going to the part of the world where he will be very much appreciated, seems to me there is less apreciation for southern hemisphere players when it isnt an international test
    cant wait to see him playing again

  • afro comment was pretty funny haha, good to see i'm not the only one who got it

  • It was pure agression that did it, they weren't as committed to tackling him as he was to scoring. The opposition wasnt expecting him to go for it and were too busy worrying about passing it along the line. Latham is as immense as ever, RD should have linked this with his touchline run and score against wales.

  • if you want to watch an uncredible solo try look cedric heymans in top14 against clermont!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!amazing

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at December 23, 2007 6:22 pm  

  • I wonder why he's going to the worst club in the prem when, as was rightly said, he could get into any team in the world??

    By Anonymous berkerboy, at December 23, 2007 7:30 pm  

  • to the person above, because worcester seem to have a lotta money to throw around these days, and to the person above that, CEDRIC HEYMANS TRY WAS AMAZING!!!!! OUT OF NOWHERE!! i especially loved seeing john smit on the floor behind him looking bewildered

  • Latham's great try against Wales is also on here. You can view it by just click on the Chris Latham label under this video.

    We'll hopefully get the Cedric Heymans try up soon, as well as some other great moments from the weekend.

    Being this time of year things are hectic and take longer though obviously, but hang in there and we'll be back to normal soon. :)

  • awesome strength from latham but watch the corner flag move before he puts it down. think he was quite lucky to get it

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at December 24, 2007 12:42 pm  

  • Australian commentry is just amazing "switched it into low-range four-wheel drive and chugged away", pure quality. Our commentators in England don't get at all excited even when we score.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at December 25, 2007 12:14 am  

  • Any chance of seeing Rupeni's tries of this weekend?

    By Anonymous Vorago, at December 25, 2007 2:01 pm  

  • No try, his head touches the corner flag

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at December 26, 2007 2:36 am  

  • i bet rugbydump is making a best of 07 try savers and rib breakers!

    i'm right arent i, muhahaha!

  • Awesome !!!
    Amazing !!!

    A word is yet to be invented !!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at January 03, 2008 10:44 pm  

  • the humour in the afro comment is that if he had an afro his hair would have touched the corner flag and he would then have been out-no try

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at February 03, 2008 6:44 pm  

  • doug howlett take heed
    you could never have scored that
