The Anatomy of a Try: Charles Piutau France vs New Zeland 2013

Early in the Second half of this fantastic game, a brave France put in a long kick with a poor chase and, as they are known to do from time to time, New Zealand counter attacked from their own 22. Four sets of hands and a kick chase later they break the game wide open with a fantastic length of the pitch try from Charles Piutau.

New Zealand have long regarded kicked and turned over possession as prime attacking ball. A huge percentage of their trys come via the counter attack and this short video will hopefully highlight some key elements of the sequence of play and the New Zealand counter attack system.
