After another busy weekend in the world of rugby, today were looking back at the weekends action in the Guinness Premiership, with the pick of the weeks tries for Round 18.
One of the performances of the weekend came from Saracens and hooker Schalk Brits, as they romped to a 58-15 victory over Newcastle Falcons. Brits scored twice, but it was his first try that caught the eye as he beat no less four players on his way to the tryline.
Leicester Tigers also had a high scoring win as they beat Worcester 38-19 at Sixways. An early try was scored by Jeremy Staunton before Ben Youngs crossed later on. Toby Flood kicked 24 points himself, so despite the big win, the Tigers failed to pick up a bonus point.
Bath beat Harlequins 24-13 at the Rec with nice tries from prop Duncan Bell, Joe Maddock, and Olly Barkley. Tom Williams, of Bloodgate fame, scored a really good late try for Harlequins as they put some respectability on the score line.
London Irish beat Sale Sharks 38-0 at the Madjeski Stadium on Sunday, with Steffon Armitage picking up two tries. John Rudd scored early as he got on the end of a nice bit of passing. Chris Hala'ufia then set up Armitages try with a break off the back of the scrum, and played provider for the flanks second too.
Roger Wilson scored for Northampton Saints just before the half as they beat London Wasps 14-9 at Franklins Gardens. Stephen Myler came off the bench to kick a late penalty and drop goal to seal the win in a tight match.
I know which try I'll be telling my mates about, but which is your favourite?
