As the week comes to a close weve got something a bit different for you now. Its different in the way that its not been done for the Guinness Premiership before, but today things change as we have a crack at the Pick of the Week for Round 17.
There were some pretty good tries scored in Englands premier domestic competition. For Harlequins their only try of the match was scored after some fantastic build up work against Worcester before Mike Brown barged over. The try was credited to Rory Clegg, who had a great day with the boot, but he admitted it wasnt him who scored it.
"I was credited with our try but, while I'll take it, I have to admit it was Mike Brown who got it down, Clegg said. Young Miles Benjamin returned the favour for Worcester.
At Welford Road we saw Leicester and London Irish battle it out, as featured here on RD, with Scott Hamilton scoring the try of the match after a scintillating Lote Tuqiri break. Fan favourite Martin Castogiovanni also crossed, with an interception try.
Sale slipped to the bottom of the table as they went down 15-7 to Northampton Saints at home. Their only highlight was a nice try finished off by former England international Ben Cohen.
Rob Vickerman scored for Newcastle when they hosted Bath, but it wasnt enough as the home side went down 17-13 after two second half tries from the visitors.
Two of the best tries of the weekend came from the Wasps match against Gloucester. Mike Tindall scored a great try as he broke the line and showed he still has a bit of pace and a great step to finish the try.
The home side won 24-19 thanks to 19 points from flyhalf Dave Walder, but there was a sensational try from Samoan flyer on the left wing, David Lemi. Enjoy the compilation.
