Six outstanding Champions Cup Try of the Season nominees named

great collection. loved them all! Last one kinda had it all, but they all had sth.

Often, for me there's 1 solo and one team try in these things. solo and team tries are too different to compare.

In terms of the sheer pressure of the moment, and the mili margins , its hard to beat Conway for the solo. This decided the game, and he barely kept it in to begin with. (these are tings u can't see when watching it of course)

Hard to separate the last 2 for the team try - 19 phases vs fewer phases but a great combo of skill and power....maybe racing's gets the nod.

Controversies galore as Munster knock out Toulon with brilliant late try

In a way, I like the fact that the ref evened things up a bit. Its the right thing to do. Its old skool, but I respect the intent.

You probably do too.

Defo the most honorable and fairest thing to do if you have erred.

Its supposedly not professional, but that's debatable.

Zebo v lucky. The whole first half in fact, it seemed like N.O. was pro Munster.
However second half was where he balanced it up - incl with the sweetnam tap back.

It so wasn't forward!

Ireland are now the second best rugby team in the world

Good point on retention. I kinda expected them to score that try against scotland before half time, just by holding onto the ball until they did score.

V well drilled.

A bit like I kinda always expect leigh halfpenny to score his kicks. IRL are like steve davis playing snooker in the 80s at the mo.

seems the rest of the world is going backwards, and Ireland are slowly, steadily, rising. (Except the kiwis, they are clearly out ahead of all).

Though on form IRL deserve 2nd place, seems a bit premature as ENG have gone on 2 v long winning runs of late (18 games and another v long one) and play IRL this weekend.

Its defo the strength in depth that's doing it for IRL, Backrow doesn't even have SOB in it at the mo!

Tour of Japan while Lions was on blooded a lot of these young lads.

Agreed also - the first act of aggression outside of the laws is the throat grip!
Hopefully it'll not lead to a banning.
(It was also a gentle side of the face run really, wasn't it?)
