After a long wait, Super Rugby is back this weekend as fifteen teams set out to do what the Chiefs managed to last season and blast away the competition. Here’s a look at the best tries scored in top flight southern hemisphere domestic rugby in 2012.
While right now it's all about the Northern Hemisphere season as the Top 14, RaboDirect PRO12, Aviva Premiership and Heineken Cup keep us busy, the Southern Hemisphere domestic season is just about to go into overdrive with one of the most exciting tournaments on the planet.
Super Rugby started today and while there are only two matches in Round 1, next weekend we’ll see a full compliment as the best from New Zealand, South Africa and Australia battle it out.
The Currie Cup and ITM Cup take place later in the year, so there’s plenty to look forward to. For now we’re looking back the top ten tries scored in the aforementioned competitions last year.
Most of them were featured here at some stage or another, so we’ve linked to them in the related posts below so you can watch longer versions of the clips, which is particularly advisable for two of the tries included here, as that match was a true classic.
The top ten tries here are as chosen by Sky Sports, so credit goes to them for the great work in compiling the clip. Do you agree with the order though, or do you have any other candidates?
