“Try of the Season” WATCH: Queensland Reds ‘Outrageous’ Try Goes Viral

Super Rugby side the Queensland Reds, have thrown a undeniable contender into the mix for rugby’s try of the season. Jake Upfield capped off the incredible team try, which saw the Reds run the ball from near their try-line, and score within a single phase.

In an outrageous performance of skill across the board, the Reds go end-to-end, and keep the ball alive to score an unbelievable try against the Highlanders.


Fans have reacted on social media, as this try continues to be replayed time and again by jaw-dropped supporters. The breakaway began with hulking number eight Harry Wilson striding away downfield, and he sold the dummy to keep his side moving forward.

He found James O’Connor out wide, who put in an almighty shoulder-drop on former Leicester Tigers star Freddie Burns. The centre looked to be hit into touch, but stayed on his tip-toes and offloaded to his teammate Tate McDermott, who executed a audacious ‘out-the-back’ offload as well.

The Reds then broke away with three quick-succession passes splitting the Highlanders defence open, before Upfield grounded the world-class try.
