Genuinely unorthodox try stuns Welsh rugby
This is brilliant from Bridgend Ravens. For many heading the ball in rugby in something that exists theoretically but is basically never put to anything like good use.
Now Bridgend Ravens’ back Edd Howley has shown that it can work and it’s an absolute bit of genius.
It’s wonderful to watch and no doubt one that will be talked about for a long time to come.
Have a look here. We’ve watched it at least 5 times at this stage.

Meanwhile: The Australian Women’s Sevens team have claimed gold during their first event back on the World Series, defeating Fiji 22-7 in the Cup final in Dubai overnight.
In a well-performing weekend for both of the young Australian Men’s and Women’s programs, the teams won nine of eleven matches to finish fifth and first, respectively.
The sides also celebrated several milestones with Charlotte Caslick, who was player of the final, notching up her 100th World Series try. At the same time, Sharni Williams celebrated a try-scoring half-century during her 36th tournament.
Additionally, the men’s program welcomed one of their largest ever intakes of uncapped players, with six team members making their representative debuts.
Australian Women’s Sevens Captain Demi Hayes said: “We worked hard in the pre-season, we knew we wanted to come out with a bang and our games in the pools set up us nicely for a final with Fiji.
“As a team, we had a lot of discussion around making sure we had a positive attitude in all of our matches and then leaving everything out on the field in the final, and the team was fantastic in doing this.
“I’m incredibly proud of the efforts of the entire squad, we go from one through to twenty, and every member alongside the coaching staff played a part in our success this weekend.”
