Stade Fancais wearing pink is inspired choice because you can't wear pink AND play badly.... Good combi guys, again.

They Treviso try is the pick of the bunch for me... the depth the backline had was like the good ol' days of the late 90s ;-)Isaac Boss' pass was a beauty, too!

A lot of great tries this week, could have chosen most if not all the tries from Gloucester v Ulster and Toulouse v Edinburgh, and although the Edinburgh try isnt on here i think that was the try of the weekend. Still a great video.

hearing the 1st or 2nd try, you hear Remy Martin... what a great rugby name.Anyone know of any other interesting rugby names?Any "Jack Daniel"s or "Johnny Walker"s hiding around in the home countries? Or heck, even a "Franco Sinatra" hiding in the Italian Pro league?

That last try was the best by far in my opinion, the pass from Boss was exquisite, you expect scrumhalfs to pass that well from the back of a ruck but whilst running its so much harder.

Liking the last two tries but i think Zee's try was great, tbh it was more the one handed catch by the player before Ngwenya (dunno how to spell his name) that really did it for me. lovely take!!!Great video thanks!

tindall a spin!! hes done it before you know its just that england have always used him as a bash merchant for gloucester when hes been fit hes shown some lovely touches and most of the good play gloucester have shown this season tins has been in the thick of it creating breaks and tries for other players

boss hasn't been making those kind of breaks since last season but hopefully now he can get back to his best and i think the ulster try was easily the best tommy bowe still had a bit of ground to cover with that big volcano chasing him down

either the Munster try by leamy, or the Ulster try by Bowemainly the Ulster try though because it was a sheer amazing pass to set it up, couldnt have looked betterps-stade fancais wearing pink has always been a pet peeve of mine, they gotta quit, but then again, thats the french for ya haha, jk lads keep your cool before you lose it about that onePSS- tindals spin and zees try are both good

I thought the sidestep by Glasgow wing against Richard Haughton was superb. Looked great in the slow mo. The De Jager try was class too.

gloucester try is the best. Tindall may be old but he can still break down defences like a genious. but the others are still quite good.

Bunch of nice tries there. Man, that Ngwenya guy is something else. It's nice to see the U.S. actually has players that can compete at the international level. Hopefully he'll continue improving right up to the next WC, and give the U.S. a more respectable WC run. I'm not saying we'd win the WC, just that we might win, oh...I dunno, one game.

the pass wasn't foward in the slighest from boss. He is showing here why he should have got on the ireland squad a sublime break. He should keep up the good work

I'm putting my chips down on Zee's try. That was a vicious side-step.That being said, who would have ever thought that an American would be a household name in the rugby universe?

Ryan, well said. First time in a while that USA rugby players are making a name for themselves. First time ever probably, and I mean no disrespect by saying that.It's also a good thing Takudzwa is known as Zee. Even the commentator for this try couldn't pronounce his surname properly.

Munster try because of the phases, coupled with the pressure of the moment and the conditions. The walk over bit wasn't that special, but the build up was (that said, its a fairly nifty side step from Leamy to end it).They are getting v good at playing keep ball when they need it. It's a pity we couldn't have seen a few more of those 20odd phases instead of the O Gara crotch decapitation replays...the 37 or whatever it was in Wales recently in that weather was impossibly perfect rugby.

for me tomy bowe's try was my favourite. It showed the best aspects of boss's game with his speed and power. it also showed he isnt a half bad passer with a perfect percision pass right to boss
