Seven of the best tries from the London Sevens

Seven of the best tries from the London Sevens

The penultimate leg of the IRB Sevens World Series took place in the Twickenham sunshine this past weekend as the London Sevens dished up its usual razzle dazzle and a bucket load of tries. Heres seven of the best, as chosen by the IRB.

Australia won their first title since 2002 as they edged out South Africa 19-14 in the final, turning around a seven point deficit in the process. Captain James Stannard scored a try and kicked two conversions.

Highlights of the final will be up here on RD within the next few days if all goes well, but for now theres this clip that the IRB have thrown together featuring seven of the best, or most interesting, tries of the weekend.

Theres some quality on show with neat passing and gas-men doing their thing out wide. Tries from France, Fiji, Kenya, South Africa, and Australia are on show but the try from Albert Valentin will go down as possibly the most unique finish.

Take a look for yourself, but I can tell you that he puts Breyton Paulses flick flacks in the shade as hes found a new way to give his coach a heart-attack over the tryline.
