As Round 11 of the Super 14 comes to an end, we look back at some of the best tries of last weekends action, with our weekly Super 14 Pick of the Week, this time for Round 10.
The Blues brushed aside the Highlanders in the same match that produced the Jimmy Cowan red card that we featured earlier in the week. Isaia Toeava scored one of the Blues better tries on the night after a nice run from wing Rudi Wulf.
Jimmy Goperth, who was the victim of the Cowan hit, scored a great try himself as he spotted some space and dived over a pile of bodies to score a rather unique try.
The Brumbies and the Bulls played out a classic match in Canberra as the home side snuck home, with impressive flyhalf Christian Lealiifano scoring at the death.
Bryan Habana got himself another intercept try, but looked surprisingly sluggish as Brumbies wing Francis Fainifo caught up to him, but then received a hand in the face for his effort.
Lions wing Henno Mentz seems to have found the form that he had when playing with the Sharks a few years back, as he scored a hatrick against the Reds in Brisbane.
Mike Delaney beat a whole stack of hapless Cheetahs in Bloemfontein to score for the Chiefs, and in Durban the returning Richie McCaw scored for the Crusaders against the Sharks.
There were some nice tries all in all, as another weekend of Super 14 rugby had us entertained thoroughly. Well have this weekends POW up soon.
