The Magners League is now heading into week 3 of action as the best sides from Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland battle it out in what is rapidly becoming one of the better tournaments in world rugby.
We have a pick of some of the best tries for you today, as sides are hitting their straps and creating some awesome try scoring opportunities.
Ulster upset the star studded Ospreys at Liberty Stadium with an impressive 20-16 win on Saturday. Scottish winger Simon Danielli scored two nice tries, with big lock Dan Tuohy finding himself in support to pick up a try of his own. Another Scottish winger, Nikki Walker, scored an excellent break away try for the home side.
As we saw earlier in the week, Xavier Rush scored a fantastic try for Cardiff in their 24-13 defeat to Munster in Limerick. Marcus Horan and Denis Leamy scored for Munster.
Fijian national Isa Nacewa scored a great try for Leinster as they comfortably slayed the Dargons 23-14 at the RDS. Nacewa finished off the try after a neat wrap around move by flyhalf Jonny Sexton, but the pass from Gordon Darcy did look highly suspicious.
Edinburgh let loose against Connacht on Friday as they scored eight tries in their 62-13 massacre of the Irish side. Tries were scored for the winning side by Mark Robertson, Ben Cairns, Chris Paterson, Ally Hogg, Alan Macdonald, Andrew Turnbull, and Roddy Grant. Connacht did manage to pick up a consolation try though, from Fionn Carr.
The last try we have is from the match between the Glasgow Warriors and the Scarlets from Firhill. Glasgow continued their good start to the season with a 19-11 win, but the try featured comes from the losing side, and fullback Daniel Evans.
It's an extremely busy period in the world of rugby, so at times we might not be able to feature all tournaments. If you have a preference, please let us know and we'll try make the majority happy by featuring the most popular action.
