England decide to release the try of the century in HD and fans are losing it
England rugby yesterday decided to release a try that many rugby fans have heralded as the try of the century.
Not many people can disagree that the try that was scored in 2010 by the England against an in-form Australia team wasn’t special.
It was just as a new breed of England players were pushing through such as Chris Ashton, Ben Foden and Courtney Lawes.
Sadly for England they went on to fail miserably in the 2011 World Cup, tossing dwarves and falling into disrepute.
This try however, has stood the test of time!

The Ospreys have revealed the pay cuts staff are being asked to take in the face of the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic.
Staff are being asked to take a 25 per cent pay cut.
A statement reads: “The Ospreys can announce the measures taken to reduce its costs due to the unprecedented financial demands placed on rugby in Wales due to the current coronavirus crisis.
“The Ospreys have undertaken a major review of its business and identified the need to make significant financial savings over the next three months.
“While staff and player welfare and safety has been the top priority since the government lockdown was introduced, the Ospreys have felt it prudent and necessary to introduce a major plan of cost savings throughout the business to address its revenue freeze ahead of a return to rugby.”
The major measure of cost saving across the Ospreys business will see staff take a 25 percent pay cut from the beginning of April.
“These are unprecedented times for all of us and they call for extraordinary action to address the financial pressure being placed on all businesses, not just rugby,” said Ospreys Managing Director Andrew Millward.
“This decision wasn’t taken lightly and we are all aware of the strains everybody is under at this time, but we also have a duty to navigate the current situation to make sure the Ospreys future as a business is secure for the generations to come.
“All businesses are feeling the strain and have difficult decisions to make and I am grateful to all the Ospreys employees for understanding why we have felt it necessary to take such action and for the work they continue to do at such a difficult time.
“All of us at the Ospreys remain committed to providing the region with a rugby side to be proud of and one fit and firing when we emerge at the end of this crisis.”
