Best tries of the Top 14 - Round 19

Best tries of the Top 14 - Round 19

While Round 20 of the Top 14 in France has just been, we take a look back at the best tries from Round 19 of one of the best domestic competitions in world rugby.

As always, the standard of tries is high, with this round in particular producing a host of wonderful tries for the spectators. We start with a neatly taken try by Henry Chavancy for Racing Metro as they beat Clermont Auvergne 33-24.

They feature again at number 2 on the list, with Englishman Dan Scarborough finishing off a great try that's started by a good charge off the back of the scrum by Sebastien Chabal. The flick pass by Sireli Bobo made it happen though.

Patricio Albacete, pictured above, flopped over for a try after Yannick Jauzion broke the line then unselfishly popped the ball for the supporting forward as Toulouse beat Albi 24-6.

Perpignan has two fantastic tries on show here from their 49-20 thumping of Bourgoin, while Jean-Baptise Peyras showed his speed for Bayonne as they upset Biarritz 15-0 at Stade Jean Dauger.

Number one on this list goes to Mafileo Kefu as Toulon beat Montpellier 31-19. A nice bit of speed and stepping had him coasting through the gap before finishing off Round 19's Best Tries with the big dive.
