A young Warriors player has today learned the hard way it's not a try until the ball touches the ground.

Glen Fisiiahi, 19, looked like he was going to put the U20 Warriors side in front of Souths after sprinting 80m untouched.

It all turned to custard though – as Fisiiahi celebrated the would-be try - before touching the ball down - an opposition player caught up and tackled him, knocking the ball out of his grasp.

To add insult to injury, Souths then scored a try of their own.
