There's 335 days left till the 2011 World Cup kicks off in New Zealand so over the course of the next year, Rugbydump will be featuring random matches, incidents, and other clips that aren't already in the archive as a lead up to the tournament.
Today we've got this video that's been put together by the official Rugby World Cup website as it features three of the best tries from the 2003 tournament in Australia.
The first of the three tries featured is a personal favourite as Norman Ligairi of Fiji, now with La Rochelle in France, who pulled off an incredible pick up at high speed on the way to the tryline against Japan.
The next is Joe Rokocoko crossing against the Springboks after King Carlos Spencer - currently doing a great job as assistant coach at the Lions in the Currie Cup - worked his magic with the through-the-legs ball close to the line.
One of the best tries scored in World Cup rugby is saved for last as Shane Williams set up Stephen Jones for a try out of the top drawer against England. Three classic tries ahead of the weekend. Enjoy.
