Best tries of the Top 14 - Round 8

Best tries of the Top 14 - Round 8

It's been a quiet week here on Rugbydump so we're getting back into the swing of things now, with the Best Tries from round 8 of the Top 14.

Perpignan were convincing as they easily beat Clermont 19-3, collecting a bonus point in the process. Gerrie Britz, Jean-Philippe Grandclaude, and Julien Candelon all scored excellent tries that came from nice interchanges initially.

Racing Metro ended their four match losing streak when they beat Montpelier 18-14 at the Stade Yves Du Manoir. Julien Thomas scored an early try for the visitors, but a powerful charge by Sebastien Chabal and some accurate goal kicking by Andrew Mehrtens was enough for the win.

Toulon made eleven changes ahead of their meeting with Biarritz, and it proved costly as they were beaten 23-9 at the Parc des Sports d'Aguilera. Tries were scored for Biarritz by Benedict August, Imanol Harinordoquy, and Dimitri Yachvili.

Albi picked up their first win of the season by beating Bayonne 19-14 in front of a vocal crowd at the Stadium Municipal d'Albi. Craig Gower's classy run allowed Jean-Baptiste Peyras to score what was probably the best try of the match.

Vincent Forgues finished off a quality try for Castres when they played Brive in a fairly dull 11-9 win for Brive. The move swept the width of the field twice before the flanker sprinted home.
