What happens when you give one of the greatest 7s players ever space in Super Rugby
One of the greatest 7s players ever to play the sport now plays rugby for the Cheetahs in Super Rugby. If you give him an inch of space he can do things just like this.
Rosco Specman is one of the most decorated rugby players of all time in the Sevens circuit, dominating for the field for the Blitzboks.
He now plays his rugby for the Cheetahs, and this solo try this weekend against the Stormers has sent rugby fans across the globe wild.
The Stormers cleared ball from their own half, and it didn’t quite make touch. This meant the 7s players had some free space to use the ball in the Super Rugby game. He made the most of it for certain.
There’s not much more we can say about this, apart from the fact that it is truly an incredible piece of solo skill.
So if you ever wondered, what is it like when a 7s players plays in Super Rugby, a competition known for giving players lots of space, then this is your answer!
Fans were raving over the incredible moment on social media.
Specman should become a Springbok!

Specman could stand 5m away and tell a defender he’s gonna step inside and he’s still gonna beat the first defender🤣

Counter-attack from the visitors and the ball sits up perfectly for wing Rosko Specman, who finishes impressively in the corner in front of the empty Railway Stand at DHL Newlands. That reduces DHL Stormers lead to 20-13 with 15 mins left. #STOvCHE
