A sensational individual try from Hinckley under 14s centre Sam Jacques has been named Try of the Month for October.

The try was chosen by England winger Anthony Watson, who selected Jacques' effort over the other October nominees.  

"It's an individually brilliant try and one that I would definitely be proud of myself," said Watson of Jacques try in which he beat five players while sprinting the length of the pitch. 

"I just remember catching the ball and then seeing a bit of space," said Jacques, who joined Hinckley this season having first picked up a rugby ball aged nine. 

Jacques was playing at inside centre for the match and had his dad Scott watching from the sidelines. 

"I think my speed is the best bit of my game so I just tried to break through and managed to get past a few of their players."

Jacques says it would be his dream to follow in Watson's footsteps and become a professional player but first and foremost he just wants to carry on playing the sport he loves.

"All my best mates are in my team and I just love playing rugby so I don't really keep count of tries i've scored, I just try and enjoy it."
