Exeter Chiefs winger Tom O’Flaherty scores unbelievable physics-defying try in today’s Gallagher Premiership clash

We’ve had to watch this Exeter Chiefs try five times already to actually see if it really happened. Did it happen?!

Winger Tom O’Flaherty has scored what is already a strong contender for score of the season with this stupendous effort against Bath today.

Honestly, it’s hard to put into words how good this piece of skill was.

The reigning Premiership champions had been putting in a dominant display against their West Country rivals with two tries scored already in the first half.

England outcast, Sam Simmonds, continued to show why he should get an opportunity in the national set up with two first-half tries to add to last week’s hat-trick.

Their third try was, to put it simply, on another level. We don’t really know how to put this into words – so we’ll just show you!

Watch the physics defying score in the video below.

In what is sure to be a try of the year contender, we watch as Joe Simmonds spots space out wide with his winger O’Flaherty calling for the crossfield kick.

Simmonds obliges and pokes a nicely weighted ball across the field for him to give chase.

O’Flaherty doesn’t have the legs to make the catch – but he instead decides to pull off one of the most spectacular volleys that we’ve ever seen on a rugby field.
