VIDEO: Kolbe wins Champions Cup Try of the Season award

NEWS: Toulouse wing Cheslin Kolbe has added the Champions Cup Try of the Season award to his Champions Cup winners’ medal.


The Springboks star scored the breathtaking try all the way back in Round One against Ulster, collecting a pass from Thomas Ramos before beating two Ulster defenders, kicking over another and collecting after two bounces to slide over the whitewash in remarkable fashion.

The decision of former Munster loose foward Alan Quinlan, in combination with the votes of European Rugby fans, saw Kolbe come out on top, ahead of Antoine Dupont’s sizzling score in the Round of 16 against Munster.

Speaking about the tries nominated for the prize, Quinlan said: “It had outstanding skill, pace and individual brilliance from Cheslin Kolbe to score.


“In second place, it was great hands from the Toulouse backs and a wonderful step from Matthis Lebel who found Dupont on the inside line to score.

“And in third, a real team move with a lovely cross-field kick from Ihaia West to Victor Vito who showed great footwork to step the sale defender and then produced a brilliant offload to Gregory Alldritt for the try.”

Alldritt’s try came in La Rochelle’s quarterfinal win over Sale Sharks, whilst Alivereti Raka of Clermont Auvergne came in fourth place and Juan Cruz Mallia of Toulouse took fifth spot.
