Castro's run in from the halfway line (tongue in cheek) vs (sketchy memory here) I think London Irish (?) and Fluffy (Mullipola) using Jack Nowell as a speed bump on his way to the line for a score against the Chiefs a few years back. Away from the props, Crofty burning the outside cover and scoring in the corner in the Premiership semi at home some years ago. Oh, those were the days

There's quite a few.

-South Africa victory

-Tom Varndells try against Irish where he ran the whole length of the pitch to dot the ball down before the defender

-Manu Tuilagis try where Alesana passes it to him and Manu knocked over a couple of defenders and scored in the corner (against Sarries I think)

-The victory against Ospreys where we came from behind with Ben Youngs and Manu tries

-Johnno finding a gap and then dummying the full back and sidestepping him to score

To name just a few

There's been so many amazing memories from our club that I can't name them all!
If I remember correctly (maybe wrong as I have slept since then) the defender TV nip around to score was ex-Tiger Michael Horack?

Deano's last match as a player, he was on the bench and not expecting to come on, but Martin Corry got injured and Deano had to come on, a few minutes later he ran off for 5 minutes before returning. Later revealing that he had eaten a bag of wine gums while on the bench and had to run off to the loo

I remember Johnno's first game for us in a cup tie at Bath. We were injury ridden, and Backy never made it, as he was stuck on the motorway. Johnno completely dominated the line out. I remember saying to my lad that he would play for England one day! I also remember running on to the pitch and hugging Wayne Richardson who was ecstatic with joy. He hugged me like a grizzly bare. I don't know if I ever completely recovered from that. :smt005

Fading with time - but......
John Carlton carrying Les Cusworth 20m(ish) on his back.
Barry Evans going round Mike Slemen for a hat trick against the Barbarians.
Again, Barry Evans giving Martin Offiah 5m from half way - turning and catching him before the try line (vs Rosslyn Park).
Darren Garforth scoring from 20m (give or take!).
Ahh...misty water coloured memories....

A very prone Phil Pugh, of Neath , rated the worlds dirtiest player lying comatose on the Welford Road turf , and carted off on a stretcher. He had hurt someone and Deano took revenge.....

Recent one: Matt Smith carrying Chris Ashton 15 metres over the try line.

Growing up: Neil Back "single-handedly" beating Munster in the Heineken Cup.
Progress requires that the fears of both sides be more fully aired, not that one side wins.
