Both of these deserved to be scores.
Two of the greatest tries that never were occurred this weekend on two different sides of the world. Tomos Williams of the Cardiff Blues and Auckland Blues winger Matt Duffie dotted down for two of the best disallowed tries you will ever see.
Williams grabbed an incredible individual effort against Zebre that saw him dart down the wing, dummy a kick and leave the defence for dead for dead before outrageously finishing in the corner, only for it to be disallowed for an earlier knock on.
The wonder try that never was!
🏉 Poor Tomos Williams! @cardiff_blues

Meanwhile former rugby league star and current Auckland Blues winger Matt Duffie almost scored one of the most astonishingly acrobatic tries you will ever see in his side’s win over Ausralian franchise the ACT Brumbies.
While he somehow managed to reach back in and ground the ball with his whole body over the touchline, it turns out the ball hit the touchline first.
