Brilliant Highlanders try stuns Sharks

Aaron Smith Highlanders

Is this the try of the season?

The Highlanders haven’t had the best season in the 2013 Super Rugby tournament, but the Dunedin side managed to defeat the Sharks 25-22 in Dunedin, while also scoring arguably one of the best tries of the season.

The New Zealand side, known for their counter-attacking abilities, decided to run the ball of a Sharks kick, with Hosea Gear, Ben Smith, Aaron Smith, Chris King and Colin Slade combining to score a dazzling 5-pointer.

Week after week, Ben Smith is putting his hand up for solidify himself an the All Black squad, breaking the line almost at will, alongside Aaron Smith, who proved that he can deliver so much more than quick-ball at the ruck.

Check out the try below:
