Watch: Cheslin Kolbe's latest try for Toulon shows why you should never give up
Early in the second half Kolbe pulled off a stunning against-the-odds try that only was possible due to the Springbok’s persistence chasing a kick to touch.
What happened next was part luck, part skill as Lyon’s left wing N. Nakaitaci batted the ball back into the field of play, only for the bounce to wickedly veer away from the nearest Lyon player.
Kolbe was there to scoop up the loose ball and then skinned the two Lyon players down the narrowest of corridors.

The Springboks made Lyon pay the ultimate price for Nakaitaci’s error that remarkably, he could not have foreseen happening and only came up due to his effort chase.
Lyon were only down 10-11 before the play but Kolbe’s try broke the game open as Toulon went on to score five tries in a 43-10 win.
The saying that ‘players make their own luck’ could not be more true for this situation as Kolbe showed why that every kick should be chased.
