The Super 14 Semi Finals have now been decided after another frantic weekend of rugby action. It went down to the last match, so the top four sides will now compete to make the final and have a crack at the prestigious title.
We've got some of the best tries from the previous weekend for you today though, as we missed out on that one unfortunately.
Round 13 provided us with some excellent tries from all over the park. Individual efforts and team tries with great offloading, we saw it all as the race for the top spots was on.
The Lions surprised the Highlanders with a fantastic comeback in Johannesburg, while the Chiefs and the Hurricanes battled it out in a game that had more of a Test Match feel. The Chiefs once again produced a superb long range try.
Joe Rokocoko got on the end of some nice passing after a great break by young Blues flyer Rene Ranger, and Bryan Habana showed his class by setting up Akona Ndungane for the Bulls. Jongi Nokwe, another flyer, showed his jetshoes as he finished off a length of the field turnover try for the Cheetahs, in the same match.
In Cape Town we saw young eighteen year old James O'Connor impress once again, as he danced his way through the Stormers defence, but it was the electric home team's fullback Joe Petersen that scored two quality tries.
Keep a lookout for our Random Guinness Premiership Tries compilation coming soon.
