Whilst most eyes were on Currie Cup or Heineken Champions Cup action on Saturday, it was another competition that provided the play of the weekend.
Roses United RFC pulled off one of the best tries you’ll see this season. Playing in the Boland Grand Challenge quarterfinals, the South African club side scored this 80 meter scorcher to secure their place in the semi-finals.
Putting together 9 perfect passes off first phase, including an outrageous behind the back pass, this try by inside center Tyrone Abelse had the crowd in raptures.
TRY OF THE YEAR? Outrageous skills from @RosesUnitedRFC in their Boland Grand Challenge quarterfinal win over Protea in Wellington. If you haven’t watched a club game recently, this is what you’re missing on a weekly basis at community fields across the country! pic.twitter.com/ROiPEXOa9e

This stunning try is a great advert for the competition and grassroots rugby in South Africa. We’ll be watching closely and hope to see plenty more running rugby in the semi finals and finals.
