Fastest ever Guinness Premiership Try

Leeds Carnegie made history against the Newcastle Falcons on Friday night by scoring the fastest ever Guinness Premiership try.

Try scorer Lee Blackett had to wait 22 matches and four years before scoring his first try for the club, but when it came, it came in style, writing his name into the record books after exactly 8.28 seconds.

The previous best was from Tom Voyce of Wasps, who touched down against Harlequins in 2004 after 9.63 seconds.

Blackett, who picked up the bouncing ball straight from the kick off from flyhalf Alberto Di Bernardo, said "I said to Albie to give me the ball inside the opening minute but I didn't actually mean within the first eight seconds! It was a shock when Newcastle missed the ball from the kick-off and it bounced straight back to me.

"I don't really know how to celebrate tries. Obviously, it was a great start and it was an impressive performance as a whole," he said.

It was a bizarre bounce that wasn't claimed by any of the Newcastle players, and once Blackett had it in his hands they looked almost shell shocked, with Toby Flood in particular not going for a tackle that he probably should have made.

Leeds went on to achieve a famous victory over Newcastle, coming out on top 16-15.



  • YES!!! I have been waiting for this try to be uploaded or broadcasted on this site!! Heard about it on the Tigers vs Wasps day (WE WON, Tigers all the way baby!!) and came to this site, then youtubed, then googled, only found new wrote articles :( ...

    Anyhow onto the try itself... Flood should have had him down, you can actually see him pull out of the tackle for some reason... Newcastle seriously should have won that game tho! That conversion was just over-ruled by the wind so ridiculously!!

  • Toby Flood... tut tut. Terrible excuse for an attempt at a tackle.

  • I wouldn't blame so much flood for the tackle, but the whole team, how come nobody got that ball without the need of it hitting the floor and bouncing in any direction...

  • been wanting to see this, who'd have thought leeds of all people could score in 8 seconds?
    pathetic "tackle" from flood, he just decides halfway through he's not going to touch blackett
    looking at the first comment, tigers v wasps highlights would be good

  • I was there. In all honesty, that was the very last thing I expected. A well-fought victory but clinging onto victory. And also, Wilkinson's conversion was awesome... Reminded me of Cotepomi's conversion where the wind blew the ball back through the post.
