Colin Charvis chip sinks the Ospreys late in the game

Newport Gwent Dragons flank Colin Charvis described his match-winning chip-kick - in the 30-24 Magners League Round Seven match against Ospreys at Rodney Parade on Friday - as a "moment of madness".

The late Colin Charvis-inspired try sealed the issue, as the Dragons ended a run of six defeats in all competitions with a bonus point win over the Ospreys.

Given the driving rain and swirling wind, this was a very entertaining derby encounter in the circumstances.

The returning Gavin Henson scored two tries, but it was the moment of magic from wily veteran Charvis six minutes from time which helped decide the outcome, as his pinpoint kick to the left set up fullback Jason Tovey for a dramatic try.

Shaun Connor, himself a former Osprey, added the conversion and although the visitors hit back almost immediately with a penalty from their teenage No.10 Dan Biggar, the Dragons held firm for their first league win since September.

"More than anything it (the chip-kick) was probably a moment of madness," Charvis said, adding: "My left boot has caused quite a few problems for teams in the past.

"I just saw that Tovey was unmarked and free, I just thought kick it and it went into his hands.

Phil Turner, the Dragons coach, was equally delighted.

"We haven't been a four-try side, and it was one of those nights where we had a little bit of luck," he said.

"I'm very delighted for the players, because we were pretty despondent with the close defeats we've had and a four-tries-to-one win against the Ospreys is good."

  • Colin Charvis is a legend, he shouldn't be able to do that, especially when he's nearly 36!

    Good performance from the dragons to grind out the win in a scrapy match in poor conditions (despite some apaulling tactical kicking).

  • Appauling tactical kicking?

    shouldnt be able to do that with his training regime, consisting of booze and fags!

  • Hail the return of the (nearly) 10 min highlight vid!
    I couldn't give a stuff who won and one of the camera lenses needed a good wipe with a dry rag, but it was still a lot of fun to watch from thousands of klms away and that's what RD is all about.
    Thanks for another great year's work guys.

  • The "Fijian from Birmingham" with a brilliant play.

    Agree with a few others here -- part of the magic of rugby union is that 1-15, every guy has a chance to show their skills -- be it passing, kicking, tackling, etc.

    does he mean a four tries to one win against the ospreys WOULD have been good? or does he just not pay much attention?

  • The new widescreen youtube videos look good. It was a very good game. Maybe Charvis chose to forget one of Henson's tries because he did something wrong that allowed one of them to be scored?

  • Glad too see rob lewis score a try against the ospreys he's a good player... and a nice guy.

  • Charvis is a legend, one of the best flankers of all time.
    Henson had a cracker of a game too.

  • the defence from both was pretty crap - in all the NH defence has proved to be rubbish this year.

    The attached aint a lot better either - big big gap between SH and NH = go the Wallabies

    You obviously don't watch the S14 too closey, I've seen far worse defence (bearing in mind The Ospreys fielded a weakened team also)...

    ...and "Go the Wallabies"?? They were the only SH team to lose in the Autumn tests and to a Welsh side missing several key players (Henson/Phillips/Peel/Bennett/Thomas +more).

    Stay out of the sun pinky.

  • in reply to james the convict
    wallabies?
    please
    wales managed perfectly alright against their defence didnt they ;D
    enjoyed this game
    even tho im an ospreys fan still good to see underdogs win, good to see henson back, good to see charvis put in a kick that some of the best fly halfs in the world can easily get wrong.

  • re wallabies v wales and a weak welshside

    did you notice the names missing from the OZ team ?

    Phil Waugh started ahead of George Smith - Tuquiri was on the bench through injury

    Mortlock playing at 12 ? He is a 13- lasted 2 minutes anyway

    Quade Cooper - 3rd test ??
    Rocky Elsom - playing in Europe
    Dan Vickerman - playing in Europe

    James Horwill - injured
    Berrick Barnes - injured
    Tahu - injured

    So - Wales really that good ?

    No - not really

    not to mention Latham in Europe who would still romp it in to the team anyday

    Go the Wallabies

  • James the convict is a twat, no other way to describe him. I personally hate people who cant admit they were beaten fairly.
    Oz got owned by the welsh like the always do when they come to cardiff.

  • Lmao, you need to change your username to Jamesthedesperadoforexcuses.

    You lost to a tiny nation with a population that's 1/8 of Australia and where football overtook rugby a long time ago.

    You've proven your stupidity by bringing the 58 yr old Latham into the equation, he's retired you retard. Welsh fans didn't say they missed JPR and Gareth Edwards.

    No wonder everybodies poor and drives pickups down there.

  • Charvis and kicking the ball...I am having nightmares about his quick throw in and dreadful kick to nowhere that lost the Lions the 3rd test v. the Aussies in 2001!

    By Blogger Jonathan, at December 24, 2008 4:30 pm  

  • Good to see Henson´s back

    Cant wait for him to be once again on the best centers in the world as he once was.

    Go on gavin!
