Incredible try from Bath prop Anthony Perenise

Bath scored five tries as they thumped Northampton Saints 46-14 with a bonus point win in the LV= Cup, setting them up nicely for a home semi final. One of the tries of the game was this outstanding effort from prop Anthony Perenise.

If you've been visiting the site for a while you'll know that whenever a prop scores a great try, you'll usually be able to see it featured and archived here. This one is one of the better efforts and will no doubt be a popular inclusion.

Samoan Perenise, who played for his country at the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand recently, weighs in at close to 120kg so once he gathers a bit of speed, will always be tricky to bring down. On this occasion he stepped a defender and accelerated away for a wonderful try.

In fact in this game each member of the front row scored, with Ross Batty and Charlie Beech also crossing. Saints were missing 10 players to the England Saxons, so were weakened already and following their heavy Heineken Cup loss to Munster last weekend, proved no match for the home side.

World Cup winner Stephen Donald also scored and Olly Barkley kicked 21 points, but the moment of the game was no doubt this incredible try from the former Hurricanes and Hawkes Bay tank.

Great try. Loved the weird goose step and the Maori sidestep. Some really slick skills from Bath, particularly in the last quarter.

Gethin Jenkins scored because of piss weak, embarrassing tackling. He threw one good dummy and ran through some fairies. Not really comparable to this try where Perenise literally explodes through strong tackling with a series of jukes, goose steps and tomfoolery.

that's one awesome try, fro the pick up, to the dummy step, to the knock back and then drag those 2 defenders to the try line.

Sorry Jenkin, this prop try just triumphs over yours

Sorry Jeroz, when you consider Gethin Jenkins had had a number of injuries and at the world cup produced that try, i still feel it was better.

Although all credit to Anthony Perenise, awesome try, easily in my top 10 forward tries

What the fudge, is there a name for what he did with his arms? The aeroplane-step, perhaps? Mad bastard!
