Calls for one-handed high ball catch to be outlawed after this filth
There can’t be many things more demeaning for a player to lose out on a high ball contest to a player that only used one hand.
It is so humiliating that it is simply unfair for it be allowed in the game. The Stormers’ Tristan Leyds was the player inflicting that cruel embarrassment on the Dragons this Saturday in the build up to a sensational try for his side.
No sooner was Leyds chasing a kick and pulling off a one-handed catch that the Stormers were slinging the ball to the other side of the pitch for Ruhan Nel to score.
All in all it was a pretty tasty try. Take a look:
