Here's the best finish from the Heineken Cup weekend

Zebre’s Dion Berryman covered himself in glory with this effort against Toulouse.

ZEBRE HAD A night to forget in Toulouse on Friday, as they went down 38-5 to the French side in Pool 3 of the Heineken Cup.

While the Italians’ attacking opportunities were limited, there was one glimpse of a chance for New Zealander Dion Berryman down the left-hand side early in the second half after Clément Poitrenaud had spilled possession inside his own 22. The Zebre man took his chance with both hands (well, one hand in truth).

There was a glimpse of Brian O’Driscoll’s magnificent finish against Australia in the 2003 World Cup as Berryman somehow managed to score despite his entire body being in the air and over the touchline. It was an incredible piece of skill from the former Western Force wing and deserves repeated watches.
