Best Tries of the Top 14 - 2011/2012 Season

The French Top 14 season kicked off on the weekend with some big games and no doubt many fantastic tries to come. Today we look back at the Top Ten best tries from last season, 2011/2012, many of which were featured here on RD.

With such a large array of talent spread across the country, both French and foreign, the Top 14 always manages to impress, intrigue, and of course entertain.

Last season some unbelievable tries were scored, the best of which have been included in this compilation from Canal+. (Many of the best can also be viewed in the Related Posts down below)

You may have your favourites, but they seem to have got the seeding right for the most part, with the top three in particular some of the best tries you're likely to see.

We'll be posting more Top 14 highlights this season, including the usual best bits in between, so stick around and keep an eye out for updates on our social media channels.

Also please always remember that if you're watching a match live -Top 14 or any other - and you see something you think should be shared with rugby fans, make sure to take a note of the time and drop us an email or post a request to let us know. You can also tweet @Rugbydump.

Which was your favourite try, and why? Let us know below.

I can't believe the absence of the full field solo try scored by Yohan Huget

On the number 1, the understanding between Nagusa and Trinh-Duc is unbelievable. They both knew exactly what they were going to do just by looking at each other, and the kick is magic.

I have to agree with you, that it exactly what I thought when I watched it. Wonderful reading of the game by both players.

Personally, I reckon #7 deserves to be higher.

No. 4 isn't all that. Reverse pass, little turn of pace, defender falls over, try. Nothing special there

this is some sloppy rugby, missed calls and catches everywhere, it's only called flowing rugby because the refs don't blow the whistle

Wow, I watched #3 and thought, how could that not be #1? Then I saw #1 and #2
