Round 3 of the Super 14 is already under-way so better late than never, we've got a pick of the best tries for you from Round 2.
With only a handful of high scoring matches, a few of these tries come from the same matches, as it was the Bulls in particular who put on an impressive showing against the Blues in Pretoria.
The powerful Pierre Spies scored two excellent tries, showing exactly how blessed the Springboks are at number 8 with strong, fast runners. Ryan Kankowski, the other Bok contender for the Eightman position this year, finished off a nice try of his own as the Sharks beat the Lions.
League convert Timana Tahu got on the end of a nicely placed Kurtley Beale crosskick as the Waratahs beat the Chiefs in Sydney, while Bryan Habana showed that there's no substitute for raw gas with his nice chase to score against the Blues.
The most exciting finish to a match so far this year though, has to the the Brumbies vs Crusaders clash in which Mark Gerrard scored a try with time up, equalling the scores before Stirling Mortlock kept his head to kick the winning conversion.
All in all, some nice tries for those of you who missed them. We hope you enjoy.
