Otago schoolboy beats nine tackles for try of the season contender

Otago Boys High School's first XV appear to have unearthed a gem in Semisi Taeiloa, scoring one of the tries of the season against John McGlashan College.

Peeling off the back of a scrum, the No.8 held off not one, but nine separate attempted tackles before barging his way over the tryline.

The try would prove to be vital for OBHS, which went on to claim a 29-21 victory.

The win sees OBHS move to third in the Secondary Schools competition, five points behind leaders King's High School.
