The rugby season is hotting up with the Top 14, ITM Cup and Currie Cup all complimenting the Rugby Championship, as plenty of quality tries are scored each weekend. Sky Sports have compiled what they view to be the Top 5 from the last week.
They feature tries by Brad Weber, Gael Fickou, Michael Hooper, Jean-Marc Doussain and Clayton Blommetjies. Despite the All Blacks scoring six against the Wallabies, they weren't included.
There are a few solo efforts, with Australian skipper Hooper really impressing with his acceleration off the mark, while Gael Fickou showed power and great awareness to score for Toulouse.
Weber scored one of many excellent tries in the ITM Cup, while Cheetahs flyer Blommetjies displayed a slight of hand and serious gas to outrun speedster Tonderai Chavhanga.
It's a great compilation and for those in the UK & Ireland, a nice way to get you psyched for the Premiership and PRO12, both of which were launched this week and kick off next weekend.
Very soon the rugby season will be in full swing globally, so your submissions and requests are key to us covering everything. Please don't be shy to get in touch to let us know when you spot something you think we should share. Email | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram
