The Best Tries from the opening round of Super Rugby 2017

The Best Tries from the opening round of Super Rugby 2017

Super Rugby is finally back in full swing and after a great weekend of matches, there was plenty to get excited about with high-scoring contests and even individual players scoring more tries than some teams. Here’s a look at the best tries from week one.

The Rebels got things started with some nice handling and a fend and score from captain Nic Stirzaker. However, it was all Blues thereafter as tries came aplenty thanks in part to a brilliant run by Augustine Pulu and a Rieko Ioane hat-trick.

The Hurricanes had no problem whatsover in scoring as many tries as they wanted against the Sunwolves, as both Savea brothers got on the scoreboard.

Quade Cooper is back in Super Rugby and picked up nicely as he helped start the James Tuttle try against the Sharks, and the very large Will Skelton casually jogged through the Force on his way to a score for the Waratahs.

Not to be outdone, the South African sides certainly had plenty of breathtaking tries as well, especially from the Stormers as they beat the Bulls with the help of Jano Vermaak’s blazing pace.

Unfortunately for the Stormers, the win came with a price. They will be without the services of centre Damian de Allende for up to three months due to an ankle injury.

Full highlights of every match from round 1

Which was the best try from the opening round? Which teams look strong and which teams look as if they already need to head back to the drawing board?

    Makes me wonder if they're not particularly well versed in purchasing the stuff.... Am i right in suggesting they're very new to the French scene? Maybe they figured "what happens in France stays in France" and it could be fun to dabble in something they've not tried before? Then again Bieber strikes me as a potential coke head...

    Bloody hell, there's some good stuff here. Probably the three Hurricanes tries shown would be my favourites. Although that #DontArgue from Skelton just afterwards was also rather enjoyable! On a different note, just heard about Ali Williams and James O'Connor getting on the Colombian Marching Powder in Paris. What a pair of tits, surely men of their means have better ways of buying their coke than off a random dude on the street?
