Guinness Premiership Tries - Round 3

Guinness Premiership Tries - Round 3

As another weekend of rugby action is over, we're at it once again as we attempt to bring you all the action from around the rugby world. This morning we have the best tries scored in Round 3 of the Guinness Premiership.

Bath earned a hard fought 25-12 victory over Sale at Edgeley Park, their first win there in six years. Matt Carraro scored twice for Bath, with the first of his tries an easy stroll through a poor attempted tackle by former England winger Ben Cohen. Powerhouse Matt Banahan also scored, powering through the defence from close range.

Northampton Saints beat Gloucester 27-14 at Kingsholm. Flyhalf Shane Geraghty showed once again that he's pushing for higher honours as he guided his side to the convincing away win. Prop Soane Tonga'uiha scored a nice try for Saints, with the scoring pass actually coming from his front row partner.

Akapusi Qera finished off well for Gloucester after big Lesley Vainikolo showed his class with an incisive break. Jon Clarke then scored another for Saints after some great build up play.

London Irish demolished Leeds 56-7 at Headingley with Adam Thompstone scoring a second half hatrick. Other tries were scored by Sailosi Tagicakibau, and Chris Hala'ufia, who picked up two.

Wasps were convincing winners over Worcester Warriors at Adams Park as they won 23-3 in a match that had centre Dominic Waldouck sticking up his hand with a great individual performance. Danny Cipriani kicked 13 points, with tries scored by Serge Betsen and Tom Varndell, the latter of which brought up his 50th Premiership try.

Time: 04:09
We'll have Round 4's tries for you soon.

Good stuff, I love how the smaller stadiums in England mean the ground is fuller and there's more atmosphere.

I don't think I like Varndell, he rubs me the wrong way.

'ben cohen take a bow you dummy spitting muppet'

im a saints fan and i dont think u should be so harsh on cohen, he didnt leave the club beacuse of the dispute as to the captaincy (as most people seem to think) but because of personal reasons which would have caused anyone to leave, and he certainly wasn't to blame.

and that tosser Graham Henry was bitching about the lack of expansive rugby...
Simply put, rugby is at it's finest when you see a mix of fowards using their muscles and back using their pace

I'm no fan of the Premiership, but that was some good rugby. Although I can't believe Bob Symonds called Neil Best Rory Best. One is going to be out for a year with injury, and one isn't, and they don't even play for the same team, or in the same competition. I hate when commentators do that.

I don't think Rory Best has ever even played 'on the mainland(!)' to use a horrific phrase.

But yea, good play. Esp the Geraghty switch to absolutely guarantee the try. Great awareness.

Graham Henry's right. Whatever they play in the premiership, in international rugby (the highest level), the game is very conservative and running the ball is usually avoided.
These premiership teams couldn't play this way against international teams.

Oh gee anon, do you think so?

Yeah i agree with him. Big international games are normally quite boring with both teams unwilling to take many risks. Think the latter stages of the world cup.

There are exceptions ofcourse, the Lions tests were incredible and so were some of the Tri nations.
