Commentator - Limerick 7's - "Miracle Pass"

10 August 2014 - 01:26 PM

Just caught a few minutes of Stade Francais v San Francisco and the Stade scrum half made a break with his winger on his outside in a simple overlap situation.  The commentator said that the scrum half would need to make a "miracle pass" and when he actually did make the pass to the winger the commentator said, "good pass, good pass, this is not an easy pass".

 

From where I was sitting in my front room watching the tv the required pass was actually extremely simple and straight forward.  It was something that any rugby player from under 11's upwards should be eminently capable of executing.  Just another example of ridiculous union media hype
