This flying one-handed rugby league try is simply outrageous

This is how you finish, kids.

ATHLETICISM, ACROBATICS, INCREDIBLE control of body and ball — this try from Kevin Penny had it all.

Penny scored this during Warrington Wolves’ Challenge Cup quarter-final win over Leigh Centurions, one half of a brace in a 34 – 24 win over the Championship leaders.

Not only did Penny manage to plant the ball across the try-line, but did so while the rest of his body was outside the field of play after a glancing blow on take-off.

Which back row forwards would you bring to the Rugby World Cup?
