Week two of the Six Nations provided some great tries and a generally improved standard of play from week one.
We witnessed an excellent individual performance by Vincent Clerc for France, who scored a first half hat trick against Ireland in Paris. Cedric Heymans featured nicely in most of those tries.
For England, Jonny Wilkinson showed signs of his former self by making a brilliant chip, catch, and pass to put Paul Sackey away in the corner for a great try. Wilkinson also notched up the huge 1000 point milestone which is an amazing achievement for a player who's been injury cursed for most of his career.
Welsh maestro Shane Williams scored two excellent tries, one of which was unfortunately a poor decision by the TMO. The try should never have been awarded, although Williams has Mark Cueto's backing I'm sure.
With that, here's the Rugbydump pick of the weeks tries for round two.
