Best tries of the Top 14 - Round 21

The week has flown by and another weekend of top class rugby action awaits us, including the big decider in the Six Nations as France look to take the Grand Slam. Today we'll catch up on the French league, the Top 14, with the best tries from round twenty one.

This round took place a couple of weeks ago so the bearing on the table isn't really that significant right now. There were some nice tries scored though, so it's worth the share as once again the Top 14 impresses.

Bourgoin beat Montauban, scoring a nice try through replacement number eight Wessell Jooste, made by a great offload in the tackle. Meanwhile, centre Lionel Mazars scored twice as Bayonne hammered Albi 46-13.

For Perpignan, Romanian hooker Marius Tincu finished off nicely as the Clermont defence held off. Toulon beat Biarritz 21-20 in a tight match that saw Gabiriele Lovobalavu dive over in the corner following good awareness and a nice long pass by Sonny Bill Williams.

Castres beat Brive 35-10 at the Stade Pierre Antoine, scoring four tries. An individual effort by Joe Tekori, where he threw two dummies and spun out the tackles, is featured at number four on this list. The other, finished off by Pierre-Emmanuel Garcia in the end, must be one of the team tries of the season.

Gregory Lamboley also had a bit of spin-action as he scored for Toulouse against Stade Francais,
but at number one is the flying Fijian Sireli Bobo, who flew up the centre for Racing Metro and showed that even at the age of 34, he's still got the gas.

Enjoy the tries. The Super 14 Pick of the week for Round 5 is on the way.

Time: 04:39



  • Try number 3 - 2 players clearly offside when the kick is made! And the tackling after that was like something from the super 14, make it look good boys, but miss the tackle!

    No.2 wasa great team try though

  • Well done M. Great start to a commenting thread. Proud?

    I think you meant to say, 'some of those good tries are like the quality in the Super 14'

    Anyway.. nice tries. Thanks RD

  • I remember Sireli Bobo at the Hurricanes (I think?). He was always lethal, but never quite reached his potential imo. Huuuge strides though.

  • Sireli bobo looks a hell of a lot like sivivatu...

  • a "weak" week in term of good tries
    Only 1 and 2 are fantastic:)

    Top14 have better to show

    an "hard to please" french

  • Yup Flooz i'm with you on that one. The previous week was fantastic though so that levels things up a bit i suppose

  • Agree with M, try 2 was an amazing team effort.

    Great to see guys running the ball from deep in their own half. Ben Foden, please take note and do the same this weekend!

  • there are no defenses in top 14. better watch the super 14

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at March 19, 2010 1:54 pm  

  • Jesus... such soft tackling...not even one on one so shouldn't be that difficult. No.4 - that 8 shouldn't have been let through! So soft.

  • Hum, last anonymous and Bradders, just 2 minutes separating two posts saying the exact same bullshit.
    You are one hell of a tool arent you?

  • amazing! I really like top 14!

    By Anonymous dezzy, at March 19, 2010 4:36 pm  

  • great try from Sireli Bobo! And great competition! I'am looking forward for round 22!

  • i like top 14 because the fervour in the stadium is amazing. Great atmopshere!! In super 14 no atmosphere, the stadium are empty.

  • Dezzy and Tom are the same person. He always make that comments on top 14 posts... Why don't you comment just one time? We can understand your point as well. Or maybe you're a schizo.

  • the best players are in top 14! Nice tries

    By Anonymous william, at March 19, 2010 4:48 pm  

  • Dezzy, Tom... and Maxwell? Please, don't follow Maxwell bullshit comment, this kind of debates are just meaningless. And i'm a frog btw. Can't wait for the crunch tomorrow.. I hope the match will be great quality.
    Messieurs les anglais, nous tirerons les premiers! Terrassons la perfide Albion!

  • Dezzy, tom, maxwell , william? Don't you never stop? ça en devient ridicule et pas crédible. Et non, tous les meilleurs joueurs ne sont surement pas en top 14.

  • hahaha funny useless comments lads!
    Can't wait the RWC to see what will be posted then!

    I agree with a few guys (probably from SH): Poor defences on a few tries and poor week for tries.

    And seeing the super14 and top14 best tries in a row, must admit it's not the same intensity.

    By Blogger kevdetoulouse, at March 20, 2010 7:55 am  

  • I agree to say that the defence is poor in this round. Maybe it's not the same intensity between NH & SH so why don't create a competition with the winner of each league, Top 14, Super 14, guiness premiership...?

    By Blogger Unknown, at March 20, 2010 12:48 pm  

  • would be great!
    but imagine the hassle to organize it

    Different seasons times.....

  • I'll tries number 1 and 2 any day, the rest were thoroughly uninspiring.
