VINE: New Munster signing Francis Salli romps home for great score

The kid's got chutzpah

Patrick McCarry

Super sign of the times.

Auckland Blues may be one of the most hastily assembled rabble of miscreants to stink out the 2015 Super Rugby season so far [pushed very close by Western Force] but they are putting up a fight down in Christchurch.

The Blues, as is their unfortunate wont, started slowly against Canterbury Crusaders but new Munster signing Francis Salli got them on the scoreboard with a fine try.

He burst through on his opposite number’s weak shoulder and showed a nice goose-step to evade the final tackle. That will do nicely for Munster Rugby next season.

As for the game itself, put it in the bank for Crusaders and Richie McCaw, who returned to form with two turnovers in the first 11 minutes.
