South African winger Bryan Habana has been awarded the try of
the year for his audacious chip and chase in Dunedin's
Forsyth Barr Stadium against the All Blacks.
The try, which gave the Springboks the lead against the All
Blacks in the September test, has won the International Rugby
Players' Association (IRPA) try of the year award. The All
Blacks recovered to win 21-11.
The judges chose Habana's effort ahead of tries by New
Zealand wingers Hosea Gear and Julian Savea and Julien
Malzieu of France.
