Super 14 try scoring winner, World Cup top try scorer, and 2007 IRB Player of the Year. You really can't say enough about Bryan Habana. Widely considered to be the best winger in the world currently, he's already more than proved that he's worthy of that tag after some impeccable performances in this seasons Super 14.
After a shaky start which included an injured shoulder after going over for a try, Habana has come back with a bang and is really starting to hit his straps. Last weekend against the Blues the Bulls flyer was all over the park. On both defence and attack, Habana was everywhere.
Earlier today, against the Force, Habana continued his great form by scoring two tries and having a great game overall.
This try though, finished off by Bulls hooker Derick Kuun, is from the Blues match a week ago. Habana caught the ball with all the skill of a seasoned slips fielder, then from a standing start took off, rounded a couple of players and had the awareness to throw the pinpoint pass on the inside.
A great try, and just a small example of why he's one of the most exciting players in the game today. Not too many other playes around the world make a run and pass like that look so easy.
I think it's safe to say we'll be seeing a whole lot more of him this season.
