Today is your last chance to vote for the RPA/Sunday Times Try of the Year, as voting closes at midnight tonight. The tries are a selection from the Aviva Premiership, and span from October till as recently as the end of April.
The six try shortlist of nominees includes fantastic tries scored by foreign imports Michael Classens, Schalk Brits, Sireli Naqelevuki, and Alesana Tuilagi, and then locals Ugo Monye and Nicky Robinson.
Last year Chris Ashton won the award, so he will be there at the annual awards dinner on Wednesday May 25th to hand over the crown to whoever comes up tops in the public vote.
The list of nominees in full is as follows:
Michael Claassens (Bath) - Bath v Exeter 9th April 2011
Schalk Brits (Saracens) - Saracens v Gloucester 24th April 2011
Sireli Naqelevuki ( Exeter Chiefs) - Exeter v Northampton 6th March 2011
Alesana Tuilagi (Leicester Tigers) - Leicester Tigers v Gloucester 16th April 2011
Ugo Monye (Harlequins) - Harlequins v Gloucester 26th March 2011
Nicky Robinson (Gloucester) - Bath v Gloucester 1st October 2010
