Adam Thomson starts and finishes an excellent Highlanders try

Last weekend saw the Cheetahs playing host to the Highlanders in a bottom half of the table Round 12 Super 14 game that ended with an extremely exciting 20 mins of rugby. The Highlanders edged out the hosts 31-28, after being reduced to 13 men during the closing stages of the game.

One of the tries of the match though came early in the second half, when Highlanders flanker Adam Thomson started and finished off this flowing move that began deep inside Cheetahs territory.

The turnover saw Thomson race upfield, get the ball out with a neat backflick to Paul Williams, who then returned the favour and sent the flanker over the try line to retake the lead for the Highlanders.

Sevens specialist Thomson has been putting in a number of good, skillful performances this season, as seen in our Pick of the Week from Round 3.

Pieces of skill like this make the game look so simple, and make coughed up turnover ball all the more costly.



  • awesome offload. Dont really get to see much lower tier super 14 matches up here but that was quality.

  • No offside at the interception - the ball was lost before the ball-carrier was brought to ground, and the (ex-)ball-carrier wasn't held on the ground, so no tackle took place. Otherwise yes, he would've been offside.

    Awesome try.

  • Haha!! Quite crazy, I was looking for clips of Craig Newby on Youtube and got the full highlights of this game, and LOVED this try... quite coincidental that I click on RD then find praise to this try... lol...

    Great to see the mentality of wanting to get the heck back onto his feet after his tackle... alot of players just stay down...

    and the offload... MATE dont get me started... Great deserved try!!
