Five of the Best tries from the latest round of the French Top 14

Five of the Best tries from the latest round of the French Top 14

Round 14 of France’s top domestic competition is in the books, so here’s a look at five of the best tries from the latest action, including some scorchers and a top try in particular scored by a man who started his career in 1999. 

Winger Jeremy Sinzelle gets things started with his score in the corner in La Rochelle’s 47-6 demolition of Agen. The win keeps La Rochelle at the top spot in the Top 14 table.

Next up, Brive’s Nadir Megdoud scored off the back of several hard-earned phases and metres. The attack was held up briefly, just shy of the try line. Then fly half Mathieu Ugalde slipped a nice no-look pass under the nose of former Springbok hooker Bismarck Du Plessis.

Stade Francais’ Jonathan Danty finished off a nice dash and offload from fullback Tony Ensor. Then later in the match, teammate Waisea Nayacalevu busted through the Bordeux line and closed the door for their 22-12 victory.

Perhaps the best of the bunch belonged to 37-year-old (!!) Clermont centre Aurelien Rougerie, with his 40-metre dash and nice bump off just inside of five metres for the score.

Unfortunately for Rougerie and Clermont, the try came in a losing effort to Castres, who remain third on the table after their 31-27 victory.
