Swansea City could do a lot worse than signing up Welsh rugby star Justin Tipuric, judging by this try

He's beginning to make a habit out of scoring ridiculously good tries.

Justin Tipuric is having a stellar season.

The 27-year-old has been in flying form for both Ospreys and Wales and is also the owner of some ridiculous tackling statistics so far this season.

Last week we revealed that Tipuric had made an astonishing 160 successful tackles in a row which consisted of 109 tackles in this season's Guinness Pro12.

In fact, the Welshman has not missed a tackle since last year's Six Nations tournament.

Well just to add more to the outrageous talent that Tipuric possesses in the defensive department, he scored an absolute belter of a try in the Ospreys' trouncing of Lyon over the weekend.

The Ospreys ran out 47-7 winners and secured their passage into the Challenge Cup quarter-finals in the process.

Tipuric scored a try on 55 minutes and it is already doing the rounds on social media thanks to the excellent footballing skills the openside displayed.

Enter Tipuric.

The back-row puts on the afterburners to chase after the bouncing ball and shows some incredible deft touches which his fellow countrymen over in Cardiff City Stadium would no doubt appreciate.

The game just so happened to take place in the Liberty Stadium, home of Premier League outfit, Swansea City.

With the Swans in desperate need of a boost at the moment, surely they wouldn't need to look further than Tipuric, we definitely think he could do a job.
