Can anyone help with the phrase 'inscrit en contre'. According to the local newspaper, our local rugby team won at the weekend:
'.....grâce à un essai inscrit en contre'
I have looked it up but cannot grasp the meaning of the phrase. Thanks
My translation would be:
...thanks to an attempt realized during a counter.
But that's got to be some kind of sport-speak. So beware...

My guess is:
thanks to a try scored against the run of play
