Three great tries from the 1995 Rugby World Cup

Three great tries from the 1995 Rugby World Cup

Earlier in the month we featured a great video that showed three very skilful tries from the 2003 Rugby World Cup . As we head into a weekend of internationals, and get closer to 2011, here's another video that shows three great tries from the 1995 World Cup.

The first try comes from Frenchman Emile Ntamack, who these days can be found plying his trade as a backline coach in France. At the height of his career Ntamack was an unbelievably silky runner. His balance and strength at full flight were fantastic to watch, as can be seen in the video when he scored a try against England.

The second try comes from one of the more memorable games of the tournament as Argentina and Italy produced a great spectacle that ended with legendary flyhalf Diego Domnguez taking his Italian side to a 31-25 win, which included a wonderful try from wing Paolo Vaccari, as seen here.

The final try in this video comes from none other than All Black Jonah Lomu as he famously ran over Mike Catt on the way to the tryline in New Zealand's semi final against England. Lomu scored four tries in that game, but it was the manner in which he trampled over the hapless Catt that made this one stick out as one of the moments of that World Cup.

As we get closer to 2011 and the next tournament in New Zealand, more World Cup clips from the past will be featured here. Eventually, the already extensive archive here on RD will become a rich source of Rugby World Cup history that can be referred back to and enjoyed for many years to come. Take a look at the related posts to see more clips from the '95 tournament.

Note: Apologies for the poor audio - that was incoming.

Anyone else watch this and think of the difference professionalism has made to the game over the last 15 years?

Mike Catt's career after that is a miracle. Could have die of shame.

Can't RD force people to use a name rather than post anonymously?

In any case, one of Lomu's many famous tries. I remember watching one video where he had half the team on his back. He didn't score a try (was pushed into touch I think) but the strength of the man during his time :)

"Not a very.....good pass....well picked up by Lowmo" Lol. You could put 10 minute clip together of great tries and they'd all be against england.

That's incredible how rugbymen morphology have changed since 1995...

Despite of Lomu exception, it's blatant that professionalism era, rugby evolution, musculation and a bit of creatine have changed the players.

Italia try: luv it
Lomu try: legendary
N'Tamack: one of the most elegant winger to have existed

Professionalism yes, but that applies to everything - jerseys, camera work, on screen graphics etc. I think with modern day broadcasts this wouldn't look so bad.

yes, i find it amazing that in the span of 15 years, italy went from playing quick ball to not being able to play at all
