Midweek Madness – Ben John scores a bizarre Ospreys try

first_imgWednesday Apr 17, 2013 Midweek Madness – Ben John scores a bizarre Ospreys try Dan Biggar scored 18 points as the Ospreys beat Treviso 28-3 in their RaboDirect Pro12 meeting at the Liberty Stadium. Rookie Ben John got on the scoresheet for his first Ospreys try, but it came about in the most bizarre of circumstances. Just before halftime Ospreys were denied in the corner thanks to a great covering tackle, but a moment of madness from Treviso’s Tommaso Iannone then gifted them a try.Iannone took a quick thrown-in, which led to Tobias Botes fluffing his clearance kick, and the ball landing in the hands of grateful winger John, who snapped it up and dotted down.“I dived for the corner and went into touch and I haven’t seen it back so I don’t know how close I was to the line,” he said. “I got back up and the ball was at my feet so as a first try, I’ll take that.“I knew my left foot was in the air so I just jumped on it. Then I got up and looked around and everyone was celebrating. I didn’t really know what was going on,” said the 22-year old, who normally plays centre but was moved to the wing due to Ospreys injury problems. “It was brilliant to get on the scoreboard and get a try. It means a lot just to put the jersey on in any position. That’s a huge achievement. I was lucky enough to play against Treviso in the Heineken Cup so I’ve had a lot of firsts this year. That was a nice one to add to the collection.”Other tries were scored by Biggar and Rhys Webb, but John’s was certainly the strangest. You can see more of the weird and wonderful in our See it to Believe it sectionADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
