The art of the set-piece: some of the best tries from the 90s and 00s

The art of the set-piece: some of the best tries from the 90s and 00s

Part of what makes rugby so unpredictable and exciting is the set-piece move. It’s an area of the game which has been developed so much over the years, with some of the most iconic tries coming as a direct result of bamboozling the opposition.

Throughout the 90s and 2000s, the Southern Hemisphere teams in the Tri Nations were arguably the innovators in the set-piece. And they used it to devastating effect, as the latest Rugby Pass video demonstrates.

From the deceiving dummy runners used effectively by Australia, to the quite frankly mind-boggling double ‘pods’ the All Blacks used to set up Christian Cullen’s stunner against the same opposition, the set-piece highlights a team’s skill and a coach’s tactical thinking.

These days, the set-piece is perhaps more drilled amidst the ubiquitous systems, structures and pods, but the impact they maintain is perfect proof that imaginative attacks can win you games.
