'How do you defend that?': Will Jordan's latest try has everyone stunned
Crusaders fullback Will Jordan is one of the game’s most prolific try scoring talents but his latest effort against the Western Force has to be seen to be believed.
The Crusaders attacked width, passing through the hands out to right wing George Bridge around halfway. The All Black winger found a bit of space before opting for kick in behind once the Force defence had closed in on him.
Jordan had been the first receiver on the opposite side but had anticipated a kick from his teammate and was running at full speed tracking the play from well inside.
The 24-year-old speedster snatched the bounce from the chip kick with one hand between two Force defenders, cathcing the Force defence unaware as he pulled in the ball and tiptoed down the sideline to score.
Wowee Will Jordan saw that before anyone

The try was Jordan’s second of the half as the Crusaders ran rampant over the home side and he bagged his hat-trick try ten minutes later.
After the Force struck first in the second half to close the gap to 18-15, the visitors ran in five tries in the 53-15 victory.
Force centre Kyle Godwin was left defeated after the second half demolition, calling on his side to deliver for eighty minutes.
“They’re a classy outfit. If you want to compete against them, you have to have an 80-minute performance,” Force stand-in captain Kyle Godwin said.
“We weren’t too bad in the first half. But we rested on our laurels there and got punched in the second half.
“It’s disappointing. It’s back to the drawing board again.”
