The Top Five Best 'Fatman' Tries of all time

For years we've been posting the very best in prop tries, and occasionally those scored by hookers, but today we're sharing this quality Top 5 front rowers tries compilation, courtesy of the good folk at Rugby HQ in Australia.

Kicking off the Top 5 countdown is a great effort from former Cheetahs prop, WP Nel. He scored a memorable try against the Brumbies a few years ago, with the dive for the line making it all the more amusing. He has since scored a great try for Edinburgh too.

Welshman Gethin Jenkins, recently included in the British and Irish Lions squad, scored a wonderful try at the 2011 Rugby World Cup, beating a few Namibians before crashing over.

The order of the top three tries is certainly up for debate, as numbers two and three on the list could easily have been number one. The top spot is sensational in it's own right though.

Host Sean Maloney also organised a great chat with the winners of the top spot, a try that was scored way back in 1997 by the duo that now form the Cheetahs coaching team.
