Throwback: Matty Russell scores miracle try against England

This week, we throwback almost exactly three years ago to the 2016 Four Nations.

Scotland took on England with a side boasting stars like Danny Brough, Lachlan Coote and Euan Aitken among others.

They pushed the English close, going in at halftime just 12-8 down, but a second half flurry of tries saw them eventually lose 38-12.

Arguably, however, the highlight of the game came from a Scottish player.

28 minutes in, Matty Russell went over in the corner in the most acrobatic style, somehow squeezing the ball down despite immense pressure from Jermaine McGillvary.

Take a bow, Mr Russell.
