Watch: London Irish youngster scores an ABSOLUTE BLINDER against Exeter Chiefs

Exeter Chiefs may have claimed a comfortable victory over London Irish in Sunday's Premiership action but that didn't stop the Exiles scoring a few brilliant tries in 28-45 defeat.

20-year-old winger Ollie Hassell-Collins stepped up against Exeter to score one of the tries of the season, continuing this season's trend of young wingers starring in the Premiership.


Hassell-Collins got the ball on the wing from a pass from Barney Maddison and went charging down the flank shrugging off Nic White's attempted tackle before skinning Jack Nowell with his pace.

He beat Gareth Steenson and Luke Cowan-Dickie with his step inside before stepping Stuart Hogg with his final step to score.

He made over 86 running metres in the game claiming two clean breaks in a solid performance despite the loss.


His try was hailed by both the Exeter Chiefs and London Irish Twitter accounts. 



Hassell-Collins came through the AASE Scheme to earn himself a senior academy contract at London Irish at the start of the 2017/18 season. Representing England U18s as well as the England u20s last season.
