Adam Thomson gets on the end of a great Highlanders counterattack

In possibly the try of the weekend in the Super 14, we saw Adam Thomson of the Highlanders getting over the tryline yet again, this time against the Blues.

The men from Auckland beat the Highlanders 40-15, pulling away after this short period of brilliance threatened to challenge their lead.

The 54th minute counter attack, sparked by new Leicester signing Craig Newby, had the Blues defenders struggling to get back to defend. Newby beat three players before popping it off to Leota, who himself stepped and beat two players before Bancroft kept the ball in field nicely and linked with halfback Jimmy Cowan.

Cowan, who had a great game incidentally, had the composure to look up and see the space and numbers out wide, before sending the cross kick to the corner, where ever present Adam Thomson was on hand to dive over, twice.

The razzle dazzle at the end was because Thomson thought he hadn't grounded it when first going over, which he unfortunately had, but it capped off an exciting passage of play that started back in the Highlanders twenty two.



  • Great try.

  • The Highlanders have scored some cracking tries this year. They may be at the foot of the Super 14 table but they should be at the top when it comes to raw, attacking talent.

  • great try - i think the pass from leota to bancroft was forward it is not the best angle to see but nevertheless great try - highlanders will be in top four next season i like the way they are playing - they had the worst start this season, they should have won the first 4 but they somehow managed to lose all 4 matches and the season was all but over
