The Best Tries from the 2016 end of year Autumn Internationals

As one hemisphere wraps things up for the year, the other is still very much in full flight. As we look toward an amazing 2017, here is a look back at a drama-filled Autumn series between the two that provided plenty of big hits, a couple of shocking upsets, and these incredible tries. 

As rugby in Europe continues at full tilt, its safe to say that collectively, the Northern Hemisphere is playing at a quality level, the likes of which could make for the best Six Nations we’ve seen in quite some time.

England are fresh off of an undefeated 2016, having seen off all comers from the Southern Hemisphere. Ireland will also be looking to add to a successful season at both club and national levels.

Their monumental upset of the All Blacks will still be fresh on minds as they have a serious shot at three Six Nations titles in four years. Scotland, Wales, France, and Italy have also showed moments of brilliance.

On the flip side, a few teams – namely Australia and South Africa – will be heading back to the drawing board. 

No doubt, New Zealand have turned their gaze towards the Lions tour. Losing only once in 2016, they should be in fine position to pick up where they left off the last time the Lions came calling.

2017 is already shaping up to be a wonderful time to be a Rugby fan. 

In the meantime, enjoy this entertaining look back on the best tries from the Autumn Internationals.
