David Mead scored a miraculous try for the Gold Coast Titans in what has already been called the try of the year. Watch the video of Mead grabbing an amazing pickup and subsequent try.

The Titans were on the attack with halfback Scott Prince putitng up a cross-field kick over the top.

Mead chased the ball but the ball looked to be sailing out over the touchline, just bouncing awkwardly inside the field of play.

However, with Mead speeding down the line, he managed to stick his hand in a reflex action and collect the ball and score a wonder try.

Titans assistant coach Steve Murphy reckoned that Mead’s effort wasn’t a total accident.

“I can’t believe he caught that ball. It was just one of those freak things, those amazing things. He’s got those in him, Dave,” said Murphy.
