"RISKY and uncoached".

That's how boss James Ford described the audacious piece of skill from Connor Robinson that set up an outrageous try in York City Knights' win at North Wales Crusaders.

The Knights were leading only 6-0 in the run-up to half-time and it looked like the hosts' defence were about to frustrate them again. But, amid some broken play, Robinson bent down to pick up a loose ball and in the same motion threw a bullet pass through his legs.

If it had been intercepted, the Crusaders had the whole pitch to run into, but it went straight to a team-mate and created an overlap for Will Oakes to double the lead.

The Knights went on to grind down their opponents and win 31-4.

Ford suggested he was both impressed and frustrated by the audacity.

Asked what he thought of it, Ford said: "Risky and uncoached.

"If it comes off, we're all smiling - and it's come off him.

"He's been confident enough to back himself. We're an attacking coaching team - we promote people attacking. But they have to weigh up the scenario.

"In this case it's come off but I'm not 100 per cent convinced that's the way to go long-term - lobbing the ball through your legs without looking."

To cap it off, Robinson converted the try from the touchline, finishing the day with a total of five goals and a drop-goal to remain top of the League One point-scoring charts.

The former Halifax half-back now has 193 points from York's 13 league games, as he continued his run - currently the longest in pro rugby league - of scoring in each of the Knights' last 30 matches since making his debut on June 11, 2017.
