Investigation needed after England prop is cruelly robbed of try of Six Nations

Yeah, yeah, Duhan van der Merwe’s 50 metre try where he beat half the England team at Twickenham was impressive, but we all know that the home side were struck by a bout of food poisoning that made them all forget how to tackle.

And who even likes weaving solo efforts anyway? We all know that one metre bundle tries where no one is 100 percent sure if the try was scored or not are what spectators really want. That is why it is an absolute injustice that Kyle Sincker did not scoop the coveted Six Nations try of the Championship.

The tighthead’s 0.5 metre solo effort against Wales looked a shoo-in to scoop the award, but lo and behold the dark horse van der Merwe came out of nowhere to win. Deep down, the rugby world knows who the true winner of the award is.

Take a look at Sinckler’s try:

Here’s van der Merwe’s try, if that’s your thing:

This is what Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend said about his winger after the match: “It was incredible, wasn’t it? It reminded me of when, for everybody of a certain age, you played Jonah Lomu Rugby and suddenly one person can go quicker.

“Duhan hasn’t had much rugby over the last few weeks. He’s trained really well with us but to play like he did today on the back of an injury, and not playing for Edinburgh, is real testament to how he’s got himself in this position, both mentally and physically.

“And I almost saw a different side to Duhan there as he stepped and then accelerated away.

“His finish for the last try was similar to two years ago (an 11-6 victory) when he finished in the opposite corner.

“It was a brilliant finish but that first try was amazing, and one that gets the Scotland supporters going crazy in the stand and silences everyone else because you don’t see tries like that very often.”
