WATCH: 30 great European tries to kick off the weekend

To mark the return of European rugby a compilation of great Champions Cup tries has been put together in one brilliant clip.

The nine-minute video begins with a classic score by Cardiff Blues in 2009 and goes on to feature tries from some of the game’s greats including Brian O’Driscoll, Peter Stringer and Juan Smith.

One of the biggest stories coming from the Campions Cup this weekend is the debut of World Cup winger Duane Vermeulen for Ulster on Saturday against Clermont.

“Clermont are a great team with a lot of superstar players who are able to make superstar plays,” said Ulster head coach Dan McFarland. “That makes the task for us one of teamwork and ensuring we can bring collective pressure with the way that we play and put that pressure onto them.

“It’s a brilliant task and a very difficult one. To play in that environment (at Stade Marcel Michelin) is absolutely fantastic but the challenge is huge.

“On both occasions when we played them (in the pool stages in 2019/20), they demonstrated that they have individuals who can break the game open and create something from nothing.

“In the first game we played here (at Kingspan Stadium), we scored a good maul try and John Cooney scored an excellent individual try as well.

“We had to put in some unbelievable defence – Robert Baloucoune’s try-saving tackle on George Moala was a particular highlight.

“I can’t over-emphasise the quality of the challenge they pose. In the last couple of weeks, they’ve been able to bring back in some of their star backs, Alivereti Raka, Damian Penaud and Camille Lopez, so we know the challenge we’ve got but we’re looking forward to it.”

Kick off is at 5:30pm GMT and will be one of the highlight fixtures of the weekend.
