The all time great try the Premiership was cruelly robbed of

Newcastle Falcons winger Mateo Carreras is making quite a name for himself this season, scoring some insane solo tries.

One week after his 70 metre run secured his side’s 30-15 win over Bristol Bears, the Argentine was at it again against Saracens on Sunday. The 22-year-old scored one in the second half after pouncing on a fumbled lineout, but was robbed of one of the all time great tries in the dying seconds of the match.

With Saracens leading 34-14 with under two minutes remaining, the game was basically dead and buried, but no team wants to be mugged off in the manner they were. After receiving the ball from a kick just outside his 22, Carreras showed his strength to power through the clutches of Sarries hooker Theo Dan before bursting into space. A chip past Max Malins left a footrace between him and Owen Farrell, which he won. Unfortunately, he was just centimetres from getting the ball down before it went dead.

Take a look:

“Saracens are a really well-drilled team with a lot of superstars, but I’m disappointed at how easy we’ve made it for them today,” Newcastle head coach Dave Walder said after the match.

“When you give them a 14-point head start after only six or seven minutes then you know it will be a long afternoon.

“We can’t look anywhere else other than to ourselves for what went wrong. We were too sluggish and gave them too much time on their feet. It’s these things that we will look at through the week.

“They showed why they are the top team in the land because they are ruthless and just so clinical. It’s a different style of rugby to what I’ve seen over the years. They’ve been able to move the ball a bit more and freshen things up.

“It shows the quality of the side when you are able to have someone like Alex Goode on the bench with all of his Premiership appearances and European Cups. He’s being kept out of the team by a few England internationals.”
