Best tries of the Top 14 - Round 16

Best tries of the Top 14 - Round 16

We have another Best Tries of the Top 14 video for you today, this time from last weekend's Round 16 in the star studded top league of France.

Round 16 produced a few classic matches with superb tries from Toulon, as featured here , Perpignan, Stade Francais, and Clermont Auvergne.

Take note of Dan Carters deft kick through for the Maxime Mermoz try, coming in at number four on this vid. Carter showed the type of brilliance hes known for - making the complicated look easy.

Unfortunately for Carter, Perpignan, and rugby fans all over the world, he was injured in the same match after a collision with opposite number Juan Martin Hernandez and will be out for some time.

Maxime Medard finished off a fantastic Toulouse team try, but it was Toulon who feature strongly as we see some great touches in their match against Mont De Marsan.

The thus far disappointing Sonny Bill Williams finally showed what he can do, scoring an excellently taken try, finally giving the fans something to get excited about. While still new to Union, and after a few injury problems, perhaps this will now be the spark he needs to lift his game to the high standards we all know hes capable of reaching.

Enjoy the tries and feel free to leave your thoughts on your favourites, whether you think Sonny Bill will continue to improve, or if you think Dan Carters performances and subsequent injury is perhaps the biggest disappointment of the year so far.
