Date published: April 11 2020

It’s that time again for Planet Rugby’s Video of the Week, bringing you standout footage you may like. Today it’s a trip to Wembley in 1999.

On this day 21 years ago Scott Gibbs crossed for what proved to be the match-winning try against England in a classic Five Nations fixture, ultimately wrecking Clive Woodward’s side’s Grand Slam dream as Wales won 32-31.

That outstanding score from the Welsh centre was a thing of beauty as he danced round the English tacklers after making an initial bust and meant Scotland would be crowned Five Nations champions for the first time since 1990.

Relive those closing stages at Wembley here as some of the game’s greats went toe-to-toe in an absolute thriller.
