Video: Jonny May dives over Italian player for absolutely amazing aerial try

Posted by

Jonny May has already gone out and delivered the try of the tournament as it’s hard to imagine another player pulling off something more spectacular than this aerial effort as he manages to dive over the player and still keep control of the ball in one hand.

The ball found its way out to Jonny May on the left wing for England and there was an Italian defender in between him and the line but that wasn’t going to stop the sensational winger from scoring.

Is it dangerous play from May who seems to hurdle the defender in open play or are the ITC commentators right in saying he is allowed to do it because he’s diving over the line?

Fans are divided on this one but you have to admit it takes serious athleticism and skill to pull this off. It was awarded by the referee and TMO who took a look at it with the linesman right next to play.

What a sensational try.
