French running rugby at it's best is unlike anything else you'll see on the rugby field. Sublime, mesmerising, and unpredictable, when the French teams decide to run with the ball you'd better watch out, because anything can happen.
The French Top 14 league is the premier rugby competition in France, and features the top 14 professional rugby clubs from around the country. These days, the league is attracting a lot of overseas players. This has created a lot of interest and focus on French rugby, particularly this season, with the standards of play being right up there with the best.
This year we've seen some great tries so far, and with that, we've brought you this great clip of the best tries from the current 2008 season.
