The standard of tries in the first two rounds of the Heineken Cup has been outstanding as the good weather up north, some positive law interpretations, and a bit of self-belief has all meant we've seen some fantastic running rugby.
There were many games, with many great tries. Most of them have been squeezed into seven minutes of quality action, although obviously some were left out as this should be only the best tries. Some of which you will have seen here on RD earlier in the week, but they're worth re-watching.
The Scarlets produced another classic with the Morgan Stoddart try , while Biarritz showed great precision to get Zee Ngwenya over in the corner against Ulster. Edinburgh , despite being on a losing side, scored three fantastic tries of their own. Shane Williams also scored a classic against London Irish. All of those were featured here so be sure to browse the homepage if you want to watch them again, with replays.
Other than those, there are also excellent tries from Leinster, London Irish, Munster, Toulon, Bath, Castres, Leicester, and Perpignan. Fantastic rugby all round.
With two rounds played, the competition now takes a break as they resume duties in the respective competitions. A much anticipated round three will start up again in December.
There are many contenders, but which was your try of the round?
