I'm not saying they didn't. There must be better examples of Grothe's prowess than that. Do you think it was good defence? If your team tackled like that would you be happy?
There are not many videos of decent quality of Grothe around.
There is a far grainier version of this where Grothe commentates and says it was no big deal he came inside and went against the grain and just went over.
I remember seeing this try at the time and it looked like he beat half of the team to get there.
On the second clip O'Conner said he saw Grothe looming up in cover and ###### himself and give it a last spurt to get over the line.
In full flight he was a monster in the mold of Inglis.
He ran down the sideline for Leeds in one game shrugging off plenty of defense from inside his own half to score.

In Rugby League, if you are standing still, you're going backwards fast.
Talent is secondary to whether players are confident.
