London Irish have had a solid season back in the Premiership, following their promotion last summer after winning the Championship. Under the leadership of Director of Rugby and former Ireland boss Declan Kidney, and his former Ireland assistant Les Kiss, who is now the head coach of the Exiles, they have played some good rugby, and caused problems for opposing teams. This try is just one of these moments, involving two players who have shown they are Premiership quality.

It is not a complicated try to analyse, however there are a few interesting aspects to it which we can mention. Firstly, Ollie Hassell-Collins, the flying winger who has caught the eye of so many pundits and coaches this season, has come inside to assist at the breakdown, and he is in the green circle.

Loader is in acres of space, because Wasps have drifted inside and become narrow. This comes because of the breakdown, and, because it was near to the try line, they understandably wanted to get as many players around the ball as possible. However, this is the downside; the space is now open for Loader to go over the try line with minimal opposition from Wasps. You can see how there are Wasps players in that area, but they have left enough space outside for Loader to get through.

This was not perhaps the most interesting try to watch, but what caught the eye were the little details that made it possible. It needed an accurate long pass from Hassell-Collins and good passing from London Irish to move the ball through the line and out to Loader. The skill perhaps outweighs the finish here.
