Seven incredible tries from the 2013 South Africa Sevens

There were some excellent tries scored at the South Africa Sevens in Port Elizabeth this past weekend, so here is a look at seven of the best, starting with a scorcher from Carlin Isles. Isles' effort, against finalists New Zealand, is arguably one of his best since taking up Sevens last year.

He wasn't the only speedster setting the Nelson Mandela Bay Staidum alight though, as Shannon Walker and Dan Norton were also impressive, and then some of the other tries showed great ingenuity, as well as quick feet, to get over. Fiji's passing and support play was sensational too.

The individual tries from Norton and Isles are nice and all, but that last one from Fiji was just beautiful to watch

Lots of skill involved in the Fiji try but my vote goes to Ignacio Martin. Huge individual effort, still amazed he got hold of the ball after 5 or 6 juggles and managed to stay on his feet.

The Martin try was great to watch, but I agree with Guest above. The Fiji try was just beautiful. Flowing passing, running great lines, support play... magical.

Isles is so fast.
Spain must practice with hot potatoes.
Fiji great team try.

I could watch that Ignacio Martin try again... and again... and bloody again.

Just a piece of sheer loveliness.

That second SA try was pure side stepping class. Against Fiji at that!

Jeepers, that last Fijian try was good. So many things that had to go right, and did.
