No flanker will score a try as good as this ever again
Who said forwards can't run?
Justin Tipuric can. He can run and then some. He can run through crowds of men. He can run away from desperately retrieving backs. He can kick the ball over a centre's head and run right past him.
The Osprey's flanker stole the show during his side's comprehensive win over Falcons at Friday night's Challenge Cup. The Welsh international was man of the match and he scored what could already go down as try of the season with the pick of the club's rout, 45-0 they won in the end.
He got up and fetched the ball spectacularly at first, exploded forward as soon as he hit the ground, burst through a limp tackle, kicked the ball over a centre's head and went over the line with three men hanging off him.
It was pretty special.
It was pretty good for
a flanker a rugby player a human.

And we thought Dane Coles had the best feet for a forward.
Still, Justin Tipuric's hands don't have shit on Jake Heenan's. There's only one flanker who can produce these soft hands.
