Round 17 of the Top 14 produced a few great tries, some of which are featured in this edition of the Best Tries of the Top 14.
Castres continued their fine form as they beat Albi comfortably, with Joe Tekori scoring a nice try as he ran from about the halfway line before bashing aside a hapless defender. Cameron Mcintyre also crossed for a fine try, following a great build up by Phil Christophers.
Racing Metro's winning streak came to an end at the hands of Bourgoin, who beat them 18-17 despite Jonny Leo scoring a nice try after some good handling. Lock Camille Levast then scored for Bourgoin after some nice hands by his fellow forwards.
Iain Balshaw scored for Biarritz as they beat Montpellier 26-10, showing once again that the move to France has reinvigorated him as a player.
The top try on this list is handed to Alexis Palisson for Brive as they thumped reigning champions Perpignan 29-9.
