Jonny May’s phenomenal length of the field try is sending the internet into overdrive
Jonny May has scored one of the great individual tries this afternoon in the Autumn Nations Cup against Ireland.
This was the Gloucester winger’s second try of the day which drew him level Will Greenwood in the all-time try-scoring charts for England.
May had already scored off of the back of an Owen Farrell cross kick earlier in the half.
This was May’s first score in which he launched himself high in the air to out-jump Irish winger James Lowe.

The opening ten minutes of the half was to put it simply, savage – with both sides bringing a massive level of intensity to Twickenham.
After the men in white absorbed much of the early onslaught from Ireland, they started to work their way more regularly into the opposition half and the gaps started to open up.
On the 20th minute of play, England saw pace out wide and that’s all that Jonny May needed for one of the great Twickenham tries.

Fabulous, fabulous, length-of-the-field, world class try ! Jonny May @J0nnyMay now on 2 tries against Ireland, within the first 25 minutes. Seems he’s looking to emulate Jamie George’s hat trick last week against Georgia ! @J_George2 #EnglandRugby #AutumnNationsCup

The in-out from Jonny May there to sit down Farrell on that second try was a thing of beauty!
