Canadian Rugby Player Makes Spectacular One-Handed Catch, Scores Try


May 17, 2016

Adam Zaruba apparently is the Odell Beckham Jr. of Canadian rugby.

Zaruba made the play of the weekend during the Paris leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series, snaring a kickoff out of midair with one hand and taking it the distance for a try against Wales.

You don’t have to know rugby to appreciate that kind of athleticism.

Zaruba’s highlight-reel score gave Canada an early 12-0 lead, but it was all Wales from that point on. The Welsh rallied for 17 consecutive points to hand the Canadians a 17-12 defeat.

Canada is one of 16 nations battling for the 12th and final spot in the inaugural Olympic rugby sevens tournament, which takes place this August at Rio 2016.
