Video: Nigel Owens says he would not have awarded Jonny May’s diving try

Jonny May scored arguably the try of the entire Six Nations tournament but their has been discussions about the possible disallowing of the try as Jonny seemed to break one of Rugby Unionโ€™s rules that differentiate it from Rugby League.

During Englandโ€™s 41-18 thrashing of Italy, Jonny May produced a moment of magic as he dived for the line over an Italian defender in a successful effort to score a try.

Seen as amazing by some, it was seen as an illegal move by veteran referee Nigel Owens who when reviewing the footage believe May dived over the Italian winger to avoid the tackle.

Do you agree with Nigel, should this have been disallowed?

Nigel rarely gets these decisions wrong.
