Super 14 Pick of the Week - Round 10

Super 14 Pick of the Week - Round 10

Round 10 of the Super 14 was jam-packed with great tries, starting with the superb performance from the Stormers against the Chiefs where we saw the Habana try that should be up for Try of the Season. Let's take a look at the other great moments now though as we bring you our regular Super 14 Pick of the Week.

Getting this video down to only five minutes was quite a challenge as there were a handful of matches that produced tries that alone could take up that amount of time. The Stormers try that you saw here on RD earlier in the week has been included again, as well as their other great scores from Duane Vermeulen, hooker Tiaan Liebenberg, and big wing Sireli Naqelevuki.

From the Crusaders match against the Cheetahs, we've got the Kahn Fotuali'i try where he glided for 50m virtually untouched before diving over to score. For the Blues, All Black prop Tony Woodcock scored one of the tries of the weekend as he received a pass from fellow front rower John Afoa to score against the Force.

The Lions continue to lose, but still managed to challenge the Sharks and in fact scored a few very good tries. Carlos Spencer played at fullback and had one of his better matches so far this season. He was involved in the build up for their nicely finished Derick Minnie try.

For the Hurricanes Conrad Smith showed his guile as he popped up at just the right time to score a nice try against the Brumbies after some excellent handling amongst the backs.

One of the biggest stories of the weekend though was the Reds beating the Bulls in Brisbane, so included in this compilation are the great tries from ace finisher Scott Higginbotham and flyer Rod Davies. Or is it the other way around?

Enjoy this weeks Super 14 Pick of the Week and please share the link with friends, teamates, and anyone else who you think will enjoy seeing these great tries again, or for the first time.

How good was Chambers, to beat the first defender with great footwork and angles then to get the flick pass away to set up the try.

Good to see some fatties showing their wheels and making the highlights!

Waldrom's double and the Reds tries were my highlights of the week. Choo-choo! Here comes Thomas!

As a bok supporter I hope this stormers front row give the sharks a run for their money when they play each other because as creggs08says the sa coach cannot ignore the stormers any longer!!! Heard the sa coach wants the stormers forward coach to assist him this year - can only be good for sa rugby never liked gary gold anyway!!

South Africa have always produced the best locks in rugby.
Poor old Bekker, any other country and he'd probably start, but it's prety hard to go past Matfield and Botha in the second row.
As an Aussie I'm jelous, second row is our only weak point at the moment.

Stormers tries are really good stuff. But very very poor defense by the Chiefs (as always ?). My favorite is the try scored by the Reds, very classic but awesome hands, i love it (and very good match by the way against the Bulls).

Awesome!
Rugby from heaven!
How's that team try by the Stormers?
And the dazzling Kahn Fotuali'i?
And the brilliant hands by the reds?

Rugby from heaven!

poor defence by the Cheifs? WTF?
The Stormers ar eon fire, and their tries involve many passes, and many tackles by the Cheifs.
They are just moving the ball too well and too cleverly, and the defence is cracking as a result.
That's normal, it's not a sign of bad defence.
It's just a great attacking effort from the Stormers.

If not in 2011, soon after. That young Reds backline looks lethal. As a Kiwi, there is nothing more terrifying in world rugby than an on-song Wallabie backline - they run from so deep like frickin' missiles and slice. you. up.

T14 isn't the same standard as the S14.
