Description –

The intercept try by Valentine Holmes in the 29th minute of the Round 14 match against the Cowboys brought plenty of noise around Southern Cross Group Stadium on Monday night, and so too did it generate power.

Holmes intercepted the ball 7 metres out from the Sharks own try line, accelerating 25m to reach 32 km/hr, stalling and changing direction to turn the Cowboys fullback Lachlan Coote inside-out

He then re-accelerates and swerves away from the defence at the same time, this freakish movement generating a maximum of 1200 Watts of power for that second before reaching a peak speed of 34 km/hr.

If we could harness this power, Holmes' swerve at speed would produce enough energy to run a 60-inch Plasma TV while he watched the replay of the vital try.

Holmes finished the 109m effort capping his 12th try of the season to maintain his position atop of the 2016 try scoring rankings after 14 rounds. 

Re-watch the effort, in the highlights from the win over North Queensland!
