Everyone loves watching great tries, so despite somehow ending up with three French Top 14 posts in a row this week, here's a top ten compilation of the best tries from the tournament for Round 24.
These compilations, if you're unfamiliar with them, are put together by Canal+ and are usually shown on the weekend of the following week. So in this case, this was only released this past weekend, but features the previous round of action. Got it? Good.
It's the round that saw Toulon beat Toulouse, with two tries scored by former England winger Paul Sackey. Both were featured here on the site, but you can see them make an appearance once again, with surprising positions at numbers ten and one respectively. You can be the judge of which should have been placed where though.
We also picked out Sebastien Chabal's tearaway effort against Perpignan and featured that, and that try comes in at number two on this list. There's plenty more to enjoy though, and it's actually a really enjoyable round of tries with some top quality skills on show. Enjoy.
It's not always possible to cover every tournament everywhere, so if you're after Aviva Premiership highlights and are wondering why there's a lack thereof, please take a look at the Eplayer on the sidebar, which has short recaps of every match .
