Watch: Tadhg Beirne Produces Ridiculous Step To Dumbfound Anthony Watson

With over a quarter of the game gone, the Scarlets are currently leading Bath 19-3 in an engrossing game at the Rec. 

Both sides look incredibly dangerous in the back-three. In the opening few minutes, Bath’s Anthony Watson made a scything break from his own 22 but the move eventually broke down after the English side were penalised by the referee.

A little while later, it was the Scarlets’ full-back’s turn to show what he could do when he collected the ball from deep. Rhys Patchell picked up the ball on his own 22 before evading a few tackles an offloading to David Bullbring. Hadleigh Parks and Scott Williams then combine excellently to unleash Paul Asquith.

The winger offloads to James Davies the ball goes back into midfield. Tadhg Beirne actually acts as scrum-half in the phase of play where Aaron Shingler’s linebreak brings play up into the 22. Beirne is then on the receiving end of a great, delayed offload but he still has work to do to get past Watson and the Irishman produces an audacious step to put the England full-back on his backside.

Check it out below.

Since then, Scarlets have had John Barclay sent to the bin but that hasn’t stopped the PRO12 champions as they got over for further scores through Paul Asquith and Hadleigh Parkes.
