As we head into Round 3 of the Super 14, we look back at the best tries scored in the last two weekend's of rugby with our regular slot here on Rugbydump, the Super 14 Pick of the Week.
While Round 1 didn't have too many to pick from, hence the delayed posting, Round 2 produced a feast of tries as the new application of the laws kicked into full effect as we saw fifty-pointers in both Johannesburg, and just up the road, in Pretoria.
While there's no new laws to speak of, the way in which the refs are now governing certain areas of the game will mean that the attacking side will be favoured, and plenty of running rugby and tries should be scored.
That's not always going to be the case though. As teams get used to the new intepretations they will adapt their game plan accordingly, and those who do will surely optimize their strengths significantly.
Enough rambling though - here's 18 tries from Round 1 & 2. We figure it's a great way to see some of the best tries, jampacked into a few minutes. We'll do this each week if feedback is good, so let us know. Enjoy.
