Awesome 60m try by Karl Lowe in the Air NZ Cup

As the Air New Zealand Cup 2008 continues to produce exciting, competitive rugby week in a week out, we take a look back at a great try from round three when Hawke's Bay hosted Southland in Napier.

The tight encounter ended 20-16 to the visitors Southland after a nail biting finish which saw them soak up the clock to secure the win.

The moment of the match though was surely the fantastic effort from flanker Karl Lowe, who after receiving a well timed short ball from New Zealand u19 star Zac Guildford, took off, beating no less than four defenders before getting the ball down for a superb individual try.

Fast, strong, and a well balanced runner, Lowe caught the eye with this effort, showing what he can do with little space to work in.

One or two of the tackles were indeed questionable, but you can only do so much when a guy shoves a big paw in your face. We like to commend great tries, rather than criticise bad defence.

This 60m classic, from a forward nonetheless, deserves to be noted as one of the tries of the season so far.

  • I always like to see a flanker do good. I agree with your preference to praise the attack rather than criticise the defence, there's plenty of dodgy defence around but only the good players take full advantage of it. And it's not like they just fell off him, they kept coming and he dealt with it. And call me old-fashioned but I love that Hawke's Bay strip.

  • He has good running lines ... amazing runner. If he had a little bit more acceleration he could easily play center.

  • funny how the ref spits the rest of water he drank thirstly while whisteling the try.... throught the whistle!

  • well put, praise the attack rather than criticise defence, because as breakaway said before me it takes a good player to take advantage of it
    a very good try i'd love to see more of this guy with a bit of space to work
