Springbok Rugby have put together the nominees for the Supersport Try of the Year Award for 2013. The list features some fantastic tries scored at Test, Super Rugby and Currie Cup level. The winner will be announced at a function on 12 February.
There are some brilliant tries featured in the video, which unfortunately starts quite abruptly for some reason and doesn't mention the try-scorers, but it's pretty easy to see who is who.
The first four are counter-attacking tries by the Springboks, scored by Zane Kirchner against Australia, Bryan Habana vs the All Blacks, Jean De Villiers against Wales and JP Pietersen against Scotland after a great bit of play by the outstanding Willie Le Roux.
Super Rugby kicks off on Feb 15th so join and make your picks in our Superbru pool!
The next four are from Super Rugby, featuring Jano Vermaak, Lwazi Mvovo, Pat Lambie and Riaan Smit. In the Currie Cup Rocco Jansen and Gio Aplon were both superb with great solo efforts.
The other big award to be decided soon is the SA Rugby Player of the Year, with Jean de Villiers, Bismarck du Plessis, Eben Etzebeth, Willie le Roux and Duane Vermeulen in the running. Young Player of the Year, Team of the Year, and Coach of the Year will also be announced. All awards»
