Scotland’s Clever Try Against South Africa Will Give Ireland Fans Nightmares

Déjà vu.

Whoever said lighting doesn’t strike twice, never told Scotland, after they just scored almost carbon copy of their clever line out try against Ireland in the 2016n Six Nations in their game with South Africa.

Gregor Townsend’s currently trail the Springboks by three points at the time of writing, but things could have been a lot worse only for some very clever thinking from their pack.


With 34 minutes gone, Scotland had a lineout on the 5 thanks to an incredible touch-finder from Stuart Hogg. They acted quick and Hamish Watson sliced through after a very clever move, leaving the Boks stunned.

Here’s the try they scored against Ireland too. A literal carbon copy.
