Former Chiefs midfielder Charlie Ngatai scooped some luck to score in the 74th minute for his new club Lyon in their 30-10 win over Pau in the Top 14.


The newly acquired centre attempted a ‘bat’ pass that looked to have gone pear-shaped, ‘lollipopping’ up in the air inviting Pau’s backs to take an intercept. The ball bounced and landed fortuitously into Ngatai’s teammates grasp and with the Pau defence over running it, they were streaking away towards the try line.

Ngatai looped around to back up his teammate on the outside and received the last pass to score in the corner, putting the final touches on a comprehensive 30-10 win.

It was his fifth try since joining the French club this year in 11 appearances, and the win propelled Lyon into fourth place on the Top 14 ladder.
