Gloucester and Harlequins score classic tries in great game of rugby

first_imgTuesday Feb 28, 2012 Gloucester and Harlequins score classic tries in great game of rugby Jonny May scored a fantastic try as Gloucester beat league leaders Harlequins 29-23 in an Aviva Premiership classic at Kingsholm on Saturday night. There were some positives for Quins though as they scored a brilliant late try to seal a bonus point.Gloucester’s tries were scored by Charlie Sharples, Akapusi Qera, and May while Freddie Burns kicked four penalties and a conversion. James Simpson-Daniel was on top form too, setting up Sharples’ try and showing that well known flair we’ve come to expect from the now 29 year old.Fullback May, who scored a genuine contender for try of the season, says that Simpson-Daniel has had a huge influence on him. “Sinbad (Simpson-Daniel) and Tom Voyce are both gurus in that back-three position. They are great mentors for Charlie and me, and we’ve got massive respect for both of them. James is still class, he’s still a world-class player.“That first try, he created that through a fantastic piece of skill. Fair play to him to still be world-class after 250 games. He’s a great guy to have around, an inspiration, a great mentor and someone to learn from.“If ever we need to pick his brain he’s always there for us, and that’s invaluable. He’s more than just a finisher. Give him the ball and he can always finish, but his ability to create is what sets him apart and his work for the first try is the prime example really.”Ross Chisholm scored two tries for Harlequins, his second a brilliant consolation effort which gave Nick Evans a chance at getting the bonus point, but all the talk has been of May’s try, and the way he darted through the defence with ease.“I think they were quite cautious about covering across and so that left a little gap to step back inside. I managed to find the gap and then I could get away. I’m not really sure what I’m going to do, then I do something and five seconds later I’m over the line,” he said.Do you think some of the players on show in this game should be playing for England?ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
