Random Best Tries from the Top 14 in 2012

As we look forward to a big Six Nations game in Paris between France and Ireland as the weekend comes to a close, here's a collection of Top Ten tries from the Top 14, some of which you may have actually seen here already, but are worth seeing again.

At the end of January Montpellier and Stade Francais played a game that without a doubt produced two of the best tries you'll see all season.

Highlights were featured on the site here, and in this compilation of tries - as put together by Canal+ in France - has included two of them, namely the Martin Bustos Moyano score, and the other team effort that was finished off by Paul Bosch.

There's a whole host of great play elsewhere too, and while it was a bit confusing as to what this video was featuring exactly, there are tries from different rounds, meaning you may not have seen some of them before.

Tomorrow we'll feature the latest video, which shows the top ten of the last round of action in the Top 14, and other random clips and highlights from the league will be shared too. If you watched anything this weekend that you think should be posted, please do let us know.

Did they get the top three correct, and the order they were placed in?

I would have chosen the 3rd try at number 1. That looks like a try that can only be scored in France. Great collection though!

I watched the full Montpellier game and was extremely impressed with their performance. Even to rule out any bias, I would have gone for 3-1-2, with the two Montpellier tries at first and second. Trinh-duc's chip was sheer brilliance wasnt it!

Agreed, I would place the 1st Montpellier try (number 3) at the top purely on enterprise

Yeah Number 3 has to be the winner.

n3 is the best because there is everything you want to see in there: genius teamwork from Nagusa and Trinh-Duc, amazing kick, speed, fast passing and quick support.

Question about the #3 video where Montpelier scores off the 22m kick...
the receiver was behind the 22m when the ball was kicked but seemed to be in front of the kicker. Would that make him, technically speaking, off-sides?

Yes, per IRB law 13.16, the receiver was off-side, and the result should have been a scrum to the opposing team in the center of the field at the 22 meter line.

That being said ... it should definitely have been the #1 try on the video! Glorious piece of work.
