The Sharks beat the Rebels 34-32 in Melbourne on Friday night in what was a thrilling game that went down to the wire. One of the best tries on the night was this one scored by Danny Cipriani.
The Rebels flyhalf had a mixed game as he managed to score this great solo effort, as well as slot a few vital kicks, including one late in the match that could have put his side in a position to take the win following a Jarod Saffy try.
He did however have a few brain explosions, one in particular, where he single-handedly managed to gift the Sharks their bonus point try, scored by Meyer Bosman, which in the end meant the difference between the two sides.
While the Rebels will be disappointed with a loss after being in a position to win the game, Cipriani will no doubt reflect on what could have been, as aside from a few errors, he's looking impressive with his new side. This try showed that deceptive pace he has, as well as an eye for the gap as he glided through untouched from 60m out.
