Top 10 tries of the Six Nations 2009

Top 10 tries of the Six Nations 2009

The 2009 RBS Six Nations is now a thing of the past, so as Ireland bathe in the success of their Grand Slam, it's time for us to reflect on some of the Championship's stand out tries, from all teams involved.

Over the last few weeks weve seen some memorable moments from all sides, and starting off the compilation is the man who some say might lead the Lions in South Africa Brian ODriscoll.

His return to form has been sensational to see. BOD is now reaching the heights and success hes always aimed for, and always been good enough to achieve. His try against France looked like the legend of yesteryear, as he showed that hes still got it.

Fellow countryman, eighthman Jamie Heaslip scored a cracking try in the same match, with an even more audacious step to finish. He himself is one of the new breed of Irish stars, so expect to see plenty of him in the future.

Scotlands Max Evans scored a great try against Wales, Riki Flutey scored two against France, the second of which was setup excellently by Delon Armitage, and then at the top of the list we see Francois Trinh-Duc with a great individual effort in Italy.

A few lovely tries, some great memories, and an enjoyable 2009 Six Nations Championship, even if youre not Irish.


Time: 05:25
Note: The order of the tries seems fairly random. You decide for yourself which are your top 3.

I was thinking about the try from Heymans against Wales... I wonder why it's not there.Heaslip and Parisse are the two best 8's in Europe right now.

I think that there's another English try against France who deserved better, and also Chabal's try vs Italy. It's a pity that the Heaslip vs France try isn't showed from a moment earlier, as there was a great break leading up to the try.My favourite three in these ten? The two by Heaslip (the one with the Stringer break winning) and the Leigh Halfpenny try, with that magnificent dodging and passing by Shane Williams

What happend to Danielli's try that he scored againest Italy!! That was just like Fluty's try it was a set peace off the top of the line out it was ace!! I also think Thom Evans try should be in there just to show you how easy it is you can score if you make the right pass!!! it was just a little inside ball!!

I think its an all irish affair here.Heaslip vs france because hes a forward doing stuff most of the backs can and the lead up break was fantastic with Kearney and Bowe.Bowe vs Wales because the chip was phenomenal and the pace to beat last years player of the yearHeaslip vs Scotland because of the unreal break by Stringer and the vision to find someone else and if that was someone like a certainS. Williams he would have tried to do it on his own like he tried to do against Wales???this is from an englishman here

Steve March 24, 2009 9:05 pm

Although Stringer did well to find the space for the break, he was helped massively by the fact that Scotland's openside was instructed to target O'Gara which left a massive gap at the back of the lineout when others didn't fill in.Some good tries this six nations, very enjoyable to see a combination of high tempo work from the pack and good running rugby in the backline. I agree that Danielli's try, Parisse's (who had a solid six nations), Harinordoquy's and Chabal's tries warrant a place up there with some of the better tries of the tournament.

It's more complicated than just who's faster.Some players are faster over distance, some have better acceleration. If you have to turn and chase a player that'll make it very hard to catch up with a guy at full speed, even just starting a sprint from a standing start will make it harder.

Flutey's 2nd try was very good but I have no idea why the first one is in there in place of Harinordoquy and Parisse's tries.Plus, anybody see the try from France-Italy that Medard finished after offloading to Dusautoir? That one was awesome.The Halfpenny try was alright but not one of the tournament's best imo. Tommy Bowe definitely deserves to be there if only for the amazing effect that try had on the final climactic game. Overall it was a pretty good 6N.
