Clermont score sensational team try after the hooter

Clermont score sensational team try after the hooter

As we get into the round up of the best of the weekend, highlights or clips from the bigest matches will be featured soon, but for now here is a short clip of a fantastic try that was scored by Clermont in the Top 14 as they produced an impressive 27-3 bonus point win over Stade Francais.

The reigning champs had lost their last two games so were in a need of a big one, and they delivered by scoring three tries in the second half, including this one in the 82nd minute that went through the hands of virtually their entire team.

Their first try came while Stade captain Sergio Parisse was in the bin for a dangerous tackle, and upon his return, they scored their second. Vincent Debaty then stayed in support to get on the end of a flowing movement after the hooter.

The bonus win at the Stade Marcel Michelin means that Clermont have bounced back nicely after their defeats and now move up three places, to 5th on the table.

It was an action packed weekend of rugby so while theres a few obvious clips that will be posted soon, if theres anything else you spotted that you think should be featured here on RD please get in touch via the contact page or post a request on the forum .

It's great to see a French team try to throw the ball around and offload like a Scottish team... :)

Yep I have to agree on this one....unfortunatelly. Just a pity Scottish team hardly win any games ;-)

Top 14 is finally raising up its level with Toulouse and Clermont (hope this is not a one off) and Biarritz. Joining the positive rugby started suceesfully by Montpellier and unsuccessfully by La Rochelle.

Sounds like the first Hcup games brought some teams one level up.

Hope this will continue...so we can see games as the 2010 Semi-Final Toulon/Clermont.

As for the try: superbe !!!

that missed tackle by bastareaud on Canale is exactly the reason why he wasn't selected to play for France.
I'm a Paris fan but he should seriously lose some weight and gain some speed. He's terrific ball in hand but useless in defense!
Bouge toi le cul basta!

Sorry, but what has Scotland got to do with the skill on display between two top french club sides?

If McCaw was playing in this game he'd be cheating and niggling and getting away with it. In fact I think I saw him in one of those rucks just niggling away at somebody. C'est une disgrce!

Lovely try. I love that it's a prop on the end of it!

In the English speaking world, this is known as a 'joke'. We use coded signs to show that we are joking, like this one...

The Hooker and the prop are both at the beginning and at the conclusion ! Team tries are always the best for me.

That offload O_O

Also, the oflloading from everybody was brilliant. Not to mention the confidence to take the tackle and go to ground. This is some of the most composed rugby i've seen all season.

Audacious and a delight to watch.

Such a pity to see Matthieu 'Hungry Hungry' Bastareaud miss with his patented 'lazy-boy' swipe tackle.

Fantastic team try, hope Italy can use canale and that young Treviso centre Tommaso Benvenuti to full effect. They need some killer instinct in the backs!

I saw it in live, was just amazing, just hear the crowd and the sound they make, extraordinary ambiance, and the try is just a beauty.

With respect, yes it was a brilliant try but come on, were Stade really defending at their best?? It's not as if Stade were in the lead and fighting for the win. Already down by 20 with time up, they just wanted to get off the park.

I say that not to take away from a wonderful try, but just cause I don't think it should be considered a 'best try ever' because of those circumstances.

gret to see the commentrators get so excited even though I don't understand a word their enthusiasm is contagious. Think only french & welsh language commentators of what I've seen get this worked up. Be great to see more 'foreign' language commentary in future-better than that worse than useless guy on eurosport anyway.Bloody great try but shocking effort by stade.

Thanks for the smiley Franky but I'm not sure that I've got my point across yet and I'm studying the Currie Cup highlights really closely. I can see some cheating and niggling and I'm not sure who it is, but I've got my suspicions.

Nigel you appear to be a kiwi who can;t handle losing.
Mccaw does niggle (a nice way of saying he makes a prick of himself).
It;'s part of his game, an important part for a no7. He gets under toher player's skin.
But you have to get precious about it.

Well done Nigel, you've confused them now. It's not Nigel that's getting precious it's all those boring twerps that can't make any comment on a NZ test without ranting against McCaw. I reckon Nigel's making fun of them. Good on him. And his Hong Kong post is a hoot.

pretty spectacular team effort and determination considering they could have just booted it out and have the game done with. also nice to see the Stade coach (i'm assuming it was him) at the end of the video almost nodding in recognition of a quite brilliant try.
good to see that he can still recognise and appreciate good rugby after his team has been comprehensively beaten.
