16 of the best tries from the June Internationals

It’s been a great summer of rugby. From England’s first series win in Australia to a pulsating Junior World Championship, there was action and tries aplenty. All this makes you wonder how difficult it must have been for World Rugby to trim this compilation down to just 16 tries.

We recently posted a look at the some of the Best Skills during June, and now, the tries.

Japan bagged a sensational length of the field try in the second test defeat to Scotland through Kaito Shigeno, while their Under 20s player Ataata Moeakiola finished a great set-piece move as the Brave Blossoms took a shock half-time lead against the Baby Boks.

England also impressed at both junior and senior levels and featured are Jack Nowell’s match-winning try against the Wallabies in the first Test.

U20 Joe Marchant’s opening score against Ireland helped his side go on to lift the Junior title.

With the Super Rugby season entering the business end and Rugby’s return to the Olympics, you can expect plenty more stunning tries in the coming months. Stay tuned!

Catch all 16 great tries below, featuring a nice mix from the various Test matches that took place

    I think it's more to do with the quality of defenders and defensive systems at the higher level. The gaps and the individual weaknesses that give the space and chance for lots of those tries are just not there most of the time in most of the tier 1 sides. And developing the defensive skills and a solid team system takes a lot of time, which we all know the tier 2 sides don't get enough of together.

    I wonder if it's to do with a higher level of development which leads to play that is so tight it becomes rigid - as you said "too much structure"... Take any top team that's going in to play NZ - they all know that any mistakes against NZ lead to points. Therefore "don't throw wild passes, make sure everything goes to hand, run the set moves" etc etc... whereas the tier 2, emerging nations, and the U20's are still more free flowing and fluid and the lower nations particularly are still playing that grass roots style where they just play naturally, switch when they feel like a switch, loop, dummy etc, rather than perhaps working to a set playsheet.

    Interesting to see best tries compilation made up mostly from U20s, emerging nations and tier 2 nations. Would it suggest too many systems and too much structure at the top level.

    That Japan try is something else isn't it! Bloody brilliant. Delighted to see the video producer include this with no commentary or music. 2:22 - I REALLY wanted to see that showboating Spaniard getting clattered in the rib cage......
