Denny Solomona’s chip and chase try is just too damn good for rugby


Patrick McCarry

Denny Solomona made his rugby debut on December 18, 2016. He’s making this union lark look easy.

The 23-year-old Kiwi made his name, initially, in rugby league but he’s making union look piss easy.

The former Casstleford Tigers and London Broncos star made his Sale Sharks debut late last year and was called up by England boss Eddie Jones for this summer’s tour to Argentina.

He blazed in a fine try against Argentina on one of his two Test appearances but participation in the autumn internationals is in doubt after himself and Manu Tuilagi were asked to leave a training camp ahead of the season.

He has put his head down and is doing his talking on the pitch. His stunning score against Gloucester was as good as you’ll see anywhere this weekend.

Not bad for a guy playing pro rugby 10 minutes.

There was another cracker in the Aviva Premiership, this evening, as Newcastle’s Vereniki Goneva finished off this superb break up the left flank.

Two sublime scores.
