The annual Craven Week tournament is a fantastic breeding ground for South Africa’s future rugby talent, pitting the best of the best youngsters against one another.
One such talent is U18 Limpopo Blue Bulls flank, Renzo du Plessis, who was already having a good tournament, but capped it off with a breathtaking solo try against the Griquas which spanned the length of the field.
After making a break from behind his own try-line, Du Plessis had to get around some more quick defenders before finding the try-line. A truly impressive effort for a forward.
Check it out below:
You’ve got a scrum on your own five-metre line. Going backwards and under pressure. You give the ball to your flank and he decides to run the entire length of the field, beating defenders for fun, to score a simply astonishing try at #CravenWeek – take a bow Renzo du Plessis 🔥🏉 pic.twitter.com/x6mhW4q9SC
