Argentine rugby 1976 against Wales but it`s Bennett and his Welsh team-mates watching as D. Beccar Varela for Argentina steps past!
Argentina are in their famous blue and white hoops.
They break out from their own 22 metre line.
They seem to make a habit of doing this!
It`s amazing how often teams prepared to pass the ball in order to break out of a difficult situation turn the tables on the opposition.
A long, high, looping pass from Travaglini finds Varela (#14, Daniel Beccar Varela) near the Argentina 10 metre line.
You`ll not find this pass in many books and I don`t cover it exactly in the pages on passing, but if it finds the target it`s a good one!
He sprints clear with the Welsh defense in disarray.
Next he swerves in-field, avoids Welsh #10 Phil Bennett
Almost immediately he takes a short left pace
and thrusts out his right leg
which throws him violently left.
and he avoids the tackle attempted by #11 JJ Williams.
He then slips the ball away
to Gonzalo Beccar Varela (one of the stars of Argentine rugby 1976).
who streaks away and scores!
JPR Williams trails him, he just keeps going. He knows it is important to keep the try scorer as wide out as possible to make the conversion more difficult.

Well worth the effort. You can save two points!
"101 Best Tries - with Cliff Morgan" has this clip - my VCR says it`s around the 37:21 mark (it seems to vary a little!).
The heading is "G Beccar Varela - 1976 Wales v Argentina".
Look at it in slow motion - see how he does it.
