Best tries of the Top 14 - Round 6

Best tries of the Top 14 - Round 6

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.

Are the sound and video out of synch for anyone else? It makes it impossible to enjoy.

Out of synch there too. Made me think that ref whistled for a contact on the Toulon try (and he could have done it).

The sound's definitely out of synch.

Yeah, Waqaseduadua's try was
pretty good. Totally set the defender up. He's got a great step. Did the same for NZ Sevens against Kenya last season.

Saubade's run made the defense look like they were standing still. How many defenders did he run through/around? 5?

I love watching these french tries, but does any one else think that the defence from most of the outside backs is pathetic? so many defenders got fended in that video. Not to discredit the try scorers but the tackles were crap.

ya banana kick try was awesome
but the defence in almost every try is really quite bad

If you watch try highlights you are generally going to get the impression of bad defence, since there is usually a missed tackle or two involved in any try.

That no.1 try truly deserves to be on the top of this list

Pretty shoddy tackling for the 7th and 4th tries.....otherwise a very good collection....

Gret tries rarely come if the defense is perfect. These compilations are made to highlight french attacking flair. If you want to see french defense watch the 2007 quarter final against ABs.

So many missed tackles I thought I was watching Super 14

Ha, as if a Canadian has any idea about rugby.
Keep your opinions on the S14 to yourself there amatuer hour.
Beside if there's bad defence in the T14 and the S14 and these two comps contain the majority of the world's best players, then I guess most of the world's best rugby players have a problem with defence.
Thanks for pointing that out Canadian Content, we should probably model ourselves on the wonderful defence so obvious in Canadian rugby.
