Watch: Cardiff Blues fullback tears through Saracens with sensational solo try

Matthew Morgan’s effort will be a contender for try of the tournament.

CARDIFF BLUES BRIEFLY threatened to cause a seismic upset in Pool 3 this afternoon, before Saracens cut loose in the second half to record a big win at Allianz Park.

John Mulvihill’s Challenge Cup winners hit the front in Barnet through a sensational solo try from fullback Matthew Morgan, with the visitors leading 18-13 at the break, but the hosts hit their straps in the second period to run out 51-25 winners.

The highlight was, however, Morgan’s brilliant individual score. 

After collecting Owen Farrell’s kick, Morgan beat four defenders, evaded numerous tackle attempts and streaked clear from 60 metres out to dot down under the posts.

Saracens, made it three wins from three when they launched an astonishing second-half revival, though. 

Tries from Blaine Scully and Morgan gave the Welsh side a deserved lead at the break, but Saracens hit back with Ben Earls crossing twice to put them ahead.

Sean Maitland also scored two tries and there were touchdowns for Ben Spencer and Christian Judge as Saracens added 39 points in the second half, picking up a bonus point in the process.

Murray Kinsella, Gavan Casey and Andy Dunne preview a big weekend of Heineken Cup action and dissect the week’s main talking points.
