Best tries of the Top 14 - Round 6

Best tries of the Top 14 - Round 6

With so much rugby taking place right now, its difficult to not only keep track of the all the goings on, but make sure the best clips are posted in a timely fashion. Your patience is appreciated as RD attempts to maintain a high standard and continue to please. For now, well catch up on the best tries from Round 6 of the Top 14.

As its from two weekends ago, well not focus too much on the match reports and scores but rather just mention the stand out tries that make the Top 14 such a great tournament to watch.

For Stade Francais Sergio Parisse crossed for a nice try against Brive after a great flick pass by Lionel Beauxis, while Ollie Phillips also flew in for a nice one down the wing. For Perpignan, Farid Sid dived over after some great work by dangerous fullback Jerome Porical, and Maxime Medard crossed for a typically classy Toulouse try.

Montpellier, who we saw earlier this week with a few classic tries in their Round 7 meeting with Agen, showed how good they are with ball in hand as they once again displayed some great handling against Castres as they sent Geoffrey Doumerou away for a try.

Toulon thumped Agen, with Jonny Wilkinson returning to the type of form that has had his club president comparing him to his 2003 version. He scored a great try as Toulon stretched down field and he stayed in support of talented number eight, Juan Fernandez Lobbe.

The number one try comes from the same game as the Francois Steyn/Sireli Bobo quick restart try you will have seen featured here last week. It was an awesome try in that Seru Rabeni broke the line and passed to fellow Fijian, veteran Norman Ligairi, who then had to sprint to the corner to beat another Fijian flyer, the aforementioned Bobo. Classic stuff.

i still don't know why people love to be the first to comment, but, yeah, ok, funny ;)

few nice tries here. quality of top 14 is that every 14 teams can challenge an other. la rochelle on a good day can annoy toulouse for example. The level is more dense than in england or super15 (even if i'm curious about these melbourne rebels)

can't wait to watch the beginning of the Hcup and the first steps of the racingmen

Ligairi is almost 35, played test rugby for ten years.. Not ancient, but pretty much a seasoned campaigner.
