Watch: Israel Folau beats five defenders to score incredible try over former Wallaby teammate
Former Wallaby Israel Folau has scored another incredible individual try for NTT Communications Shining Arcs Tokyo Bay Urayasu in their League One clash against the Panasonic Wild Knights.
The Shining Arcs fullback sliced through Panasonic when his side needed a play, down by seven with just ten minutes remaining.
Folau picked up a loose pass that looked like it would result in a net loss before fending off Japanese international Shota Horie and Kiwi prop Craig Miller.
Horie went back for seconds and was swatted away again as Folau slipped his tackle and broke into the backfield past the halfback. Facing the fullback, Folau put a goose step on and went around the outside before out sprinting flyhalf Rikiya Matsuda.
Former Wallaby teammate Marika Koroibete could only dive over in unison with Folau as he scored under the sticks.
The try levelled the scores at 24-all but ultimately Panasonic would prove to be winners when a magic offload from Horie set up a try for the Wild Knights only minutes later.
Folau’s Tokyo Bay could not muster anything with their final possession before being turned over the ruck, but his individual effort stands as one of the best of the League One season so far.
