It’s not everyday you see a prop setting up a try with a glancing header

Don't think he meant this

The Hurricanes have made it to the last four of the 2017 Super Rugby championship.

The New Zealand franchise saw off their Australian counterparts 35-21 and are looking in fine form.

Trailing 13-5 midway through the first half, Hurricanes scrum-half TJ Perenara pinged a pass off the head of prop Ben May. The pass was a tad high and it richoted off the forward’s head before bouncing up and over the Brumbies defence.

Jordie Barrett, who impressed on his full New Zealand debut against the Lions earlier this month, took full advantage to pounce on the skittling ball.

The try was deemed good and it sparked an impressive ‘Canes comeback.

Wes Goosen scored twice for the victors and returning hooker Dane Coles looked mightily impressive in his first game for four months.
