Compilation of the Top Tries in Super Rugby in 2013

The much anticipated start of Super Rugby 2014 is this weekend, so to give you a taste of the kind of rugby we'll be treated to, here is a compilation of some of the best tries scored in last year's tournament. It's not a short video, but it's well worth watching.

This weekend the tournament starts, albeit in a low key manner as there are only two matches, between the Cheetahs and Lions, and the Sharks and the Bulls. In round two there is a full serving of games though, with seven matches across South Africa, New Zealand and Australia. 

Last year was another amazing season for Super Rugby, and the video below features no less than 44 absolutely top quality tries. They bring back great memories, and it's quite hard to believe that they all took place in just one season.

Standouts in the bunch are Julian Savea's charge on Israel Dag (as well as his incredible pickup try), Telusa Veainu's full-field sprint, Tamati Ellison's pass for Ben Smith, Gio Aplon's brilliant stepping, Dagg's incredible solo effort vs the Chiefs, Rene Ranger smashing through Zane Kirchner, Colin Slade scoring that unbelievable Highlanders team try, and Tim Nanai Williams' goosestep.

Another notable mention would be Pat Lambie's try, which was featured in the recent post we made with the nominations for the South African Try of the Year Award. That will be announced tonight.

Not the video for it, but I'd just like to make the rugby world aware that Matthew Rees (a Welsh hooker) who has recently been battling testicular cancer has been given the all clear:

Not a Welsh fan, not Welsh, not a Cardiff Blues fan (I think thats his club?). But it's just nice to hear someone is on the mend!

Sorry about that, Rolf. Can't help other than to suggest trying out a proxy of some kind to watch it. It's worth it.

If you ask me its none of the ones listed, I though the best tries were either Hugh Pyle switch arms against the Crusaders or Higgenbothem and O'connor against the Chiefs.

Great video.
Id like to see a 12 minute highlight package of penalty kicks from the NH comps!

More seriously, I think there was only one try from the set piece. Everything else was just made up on the spot by blokes being awesome.

Wouldn't bother, very boring, just check out some of the International tries scored over the 6N so far ;)
