Oh come on, what stood out about McKensie's try? If you wanted a really good frontrow try you should look at Keith Wood chipping the ball over Jeff Wilson and beating him for pace in 1997

I guess even though Schalk Brits is a hooker he can't qualify as a fat man? 2011 premiership try of the season vs Gloucester for Saracens.

The last OsDurandt one is quite formidable
I remember Woodman, Brits, Woods, Califano or Fitzpatrick scoring some solo tries

Yep, iamaj8 has it.... Trevor Woodman.

Can't find the video of it anywhere anymore which is why I guess it's not made the top 10....

Woodman's sidestep v the fullback was absolutely deadly.

#6 to Ewen MacKenzie was a total homer call. The rest of the tries quite impressive.

What about Deon Fourie and his great try with a chip kick against the Sharks two years ago?

I think this is the one you're meaning, against the Force - Hooker Deon Fourie chip and chase down the wing

Ah right, it was the Force ;-)

He's not so fat but what an incredible front-rower try. Couldn't the commentators at least get a little excited about it?

No Scott Gibbs against England 1999. I think its fair to call him a fat man....

"World's Fastest Prop" was the title I think you were looking for.

Things like this almost makes a Fat Man cry.

Phil Vickery vs Wasps in 2002 surely?

That's the one! Newcastle, not Wasps, my mistake. Amazing try!

I wouldn't be a fan of Jenkins, but his tries the best by a mile. It would be a fantastic try for any back...

I guess because it's against Namibia it's not seen as being as good.
Given that Namibia have mostly semi-professional players.
Still, a great prop try.

Fifteen test tries from Uncle Fester -- the most by any hooker at that time.

In terms of the videos above -- maybe his one against the USA in 1999 is the only highlight worthy try. But as an overall body of work -- a legend.

Ryan Bevington vs Ulster. Ospreys were camped deep in their 22 with slow ball and with one man in the sinbin. Quality this!
