We have a few of the best tries from Round 3 of the Magners League for you today. While they aren't of the highest quality, many have written in requesting to see them.
The pick of the action came from the Scarlets and Munster clash at Parc y Scarlets in Wales. The home side looked to have caused the upset, but a late try by Denis Hurley tied the game up. Flyhalf Jeremy Manning completed the conversion for the 22-20 win.
Hurley scored two tries on the night, but the best of the match, and probably the weekend, went to Scarlets prop Deacon Manu. Manu kept up in support after a break out by Sean Lamont up the left wing. Jonathan Davies and flanker Simon Easterby were on hand when needed, with Manu taking the last pass to finish a great try.
Edinburgh beat Ulster 16-13 at Ravenhill to go top of the standings as they fought back from 10-0 down. Stephen Ferris and Clinton Schifcofske scored for the home side, but Tim Visser scored a try for Edinburgh before Chris Paterson kicked two penalties, and Phil Godman slotted a drop goal.
Cardiff Blues surprisingly lost to Connacht at the Sportsground, going down 18-16 despite having some internationals back in their side. Ben Blair scored early on to give them a lead, but two tries to Connacht wing Fionn Carr set the home side up for a great win.
