22 metre line.
The ball came out to number 9, the scrum half. He had several options.
He could run, kick or pass to one of several players.
Much thought must have gone into this planned move and it caught the
Jamie didn`t stay in his normal position in the backline, between the fly-half
and the outside centre, running straight up field.
Instead he ran a line cutting back towards touch, across in front of the fly-half,
heading straight for a gap between two players.

the line he scored withe barely a hand touching him.
