Incredible footage of Bridge's try


Canon have released some genuinely incredible footage of George Bridge's try

Canon have released an amazing on-pitch view of George Bridge’s try against the Springboks on Saturday.

Bridge scored New Zealand’s first try in their 23-13 defeat of South Africa in Yokohama, a game which sets New Zealand up as likely pool winners.

It was a move the typified the brilliance of the All Blacks, as Steve Hansen’s men went the length of the pitch before Bridge finished a brilliant team move.

And in the unlikely event that you were tired of watching it back, Canon have now provided a fresh look at what was arguably the try of the weekend, which can be see below.

Tho footage is attained by using multiple high-resolution cameras set up around the International Stadium in Yokohama, which simultaneously capture the game from multiple viewpoints. This allows viewers to then watch replays from angles not possible with conventional cameras, achieving a viewpoint as if you were on the centre of the field.

The system, called Free Viewpoint Video, will also be available for England v France, both semi-finals and the final on November 2.

Meanwhile, New Zealand’s Kieran Read has been criticised for a neck tackle during Saturday’s defeat of South Africa.

South African journalist Brenden Nel, who has a strong Twitter following, has questioned why World Rugby didn’t cite Read from a lineout incident with Pieter-Steph du Toit in the opening game at Yokohama.

Nel tweeted footage of the alleged incident, and said: “Wonder what the All Blacks say about this?

“Probably just bury their heads in the sand. It’s their All Blacks after all.”
