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.
Note: We'll have Round 4's tries for you soon.
