This amazing passage of end to end play from Auckland club rugby did the rounds recently after it was posted by someone who was at the game. It features a flowing passage of play where either side, Grammar-Carlton or Suburbs, could have scored.
Suburbs, in red, were leading 27-7 at the halftime break, but then had two players yellow-carded at once, allowing Grammar to come back into the match with some great rugby.
The passage of play took place when the score was at 30-26 following a great Grammar comeback, which they were trying to cap off with a try while Suburbs were still down to 13-men.
Both sides featured players that have played at top representative level, including giant tighthead prop Ofa Tu'ungafasi, who played for NZ U/20 and this season is part of the Blues in Super Rugby.
In the end after multiple phases, the try was finished off by winger Gareth Williams-Spiers.
If ever you wondered why the All Blacks are so good, this footage could give you a clue.
