In round 6 of the French Top 14 some fantastic tries were scored across the country. We have the best of those for you in another short highlights clip.
First up we have Toulon's match with Montpellier and the man we interviewed last week, Ross Skeate, scoring his first try for the club. Montpellier won the match 21-20 though, with Sebastien Kuzbik scoring for them after handing off Tom May.
Mirco Bergamasco scored again for Stade Francais as they thrashed Castres 44-18 in Paris. James Haskell also scored, as did Julien Arias as he shoved off a couple of hapless tackles.
The flying Fijian Viliame Waqaseduadua scored two tries for Brive in their 23-20 loss to Montauban. His second try, which comes in at number 1 on this list, was an absolute scorcher that came from within his own half.
Lucas Borges scored an amazing try for Albi against Toulouse as they lost 19-13. The try was pretty easy for Borges after he got the lucky bounce, but it came from a banana-cross-kick from their flyhalf which caught the defence off guard.
Clermont beat Racing Metro 30-22 at home with tries to Wesley Fofana and Thomas Domingo. Fofana's try came from a neat Brock James chip which he then plucked out the air. Racing Metro scored a nice try of their own through Julien Saubade.
Bourgoin surprisingly beat champions Perpignan 17-6 in Grenoble, helped by a superb try that was finished off by John Senio after hooker Remy Vigneaux made a brilliant break up field. Awesome play by the big front rower.
We'll have more Top 14 action for you soon.
