Six Outstanding Tries on Shortlist for Premiership Try of the Season

Six Outstanding Tries on Shortlist for Premiership Try of the Season

It’s that time of year again as the shortlist for the best try of the 2015-2016 Premiership season has been announced. Whether you’re a fan of line breaks, busted tackles, the chip and chase or long distance gallops, there are plenty of mouth-watering offerings to choose from.

With well over 600 tries being scored, these six have been selected as the cream of the crop.

Try of the Season nominees:

1. Peter Betham, Leicester vs. Gloucester – Round 19. Tigers steal lineout ball, Tuilagi finds a hole and connects with Betham for a score in the corner.

2. Ross Chisholm, Harlequins vs. Gloucester – Round 7. Jamie Roberts, in full gallop, finds Mike Brown who skillfully dishes to Chisholm for the score.

3. Sam James, Sale vs. Northampton – Round 3. Sharks swing the ball out wide to James who executes a brilliant chip and chase.

4. George Pisi, Northampton vs. Gloucester – Round 22. Saints secure turnover ball. Harry Mallinder beats multiple defenders to help set up a high-flying George Pisi.

5. Harry Thacker, Leicester vs. Northampton – Round 20. Thacker from half-way, hot-stepping his way through traffic, then showing serious pace for the 50 meter score.

6. Cooper Vuna, Worcester vs. Saracens – Round 22. Warriors start from inside their own 22. Bryce Heem finds the corner and runs virtually untouched to find support and Vuna for the score.

And there you have it. Six brilliant tries. Do you agree with the judges’ selection or were any left out? Who deserves to be crowned the 2015-2016 Citizen Try of the Year Winner?

Results will be announced Aviva Premiership Rugby Awards Wednesday, May 18.

    I hate to say it as a saints fan... But it has to be Thacker. Thought he was some kind of reserve player at the start of the season but what a players he's turned out to be!

    Probably the Thacker try eh? Hooker from the halfway line. Number defenders beaten, both in the heavy traffic and then in space. And I love the dummy to Goneva - I think everyone including Goneva were shocked when he didn't pass! And that acceleration for the line! After a 50m run that was impressive! Do we need to deduct points from him for a horrendous haircut? Mostly obscured by the scrum cap to be fair. And he gets bonus points for the massive mis-pass in the Betham try.
