Super 14 Pick of the Week - Round 7

Round Seven of the Super 14 provided us with plenty to shout about as we witnessed some classic matches, nail-biting finishes, huge hits, and loads of razzle dazzle. Here’s a look at the best tries with our regular Pick of the Week.

The Waratahs stole the game from the Blues in the last ten minutes as Lachie Turner sealed the 39-32 win with an intercept try as the visitors pushed for the win at the Sydney Football Stadium.

The tries of the match, as featured here, came from Rudi Wulf, Dean Mumm, and Isaia Toeava, and Totafu Polota-Nau. Wulf and Polota-Nau showed their power, Mumm did the same for the ‘Tahs, but with a handoff, and Toeava got on the end of an excellent move from the backs.

The Bulls travelled to Perth and managed to maintain their unbeaten run by beating the Force 28-15 in a match that tested them more than they would have liked. Pierre Spies was immense on the night, scoring a try after relentless pressure, but Zane Kirchner gets his try featured after some nice hands out wide put away.

As featured on RD earlier, the Sharks beat the Hurricanes 29-26 with a nailbiting finish at Westpac Stadium. The try of the match was undoubtedly the team effort that featured Jaques Botes handling twice to set up JP Pietersen’s run in.

The Highlanders beat the Lions 39-29 in Dunedin, with the tourists now sitting on seven defeats in a row despite never giving up. They scored five tries, but it was Israel Dagg who kicked nine out of ten kicks at goal to add to their penalty try, and efforts from Kendrick Lynn and Hayden Triggs. The Triggs try was excellent, involving many players.

Elsewhere, the Reds beat the Cheetahs 31-10 with tries by Will Genia, Digby Ioane, and Nathan Hynes. With a jampacked package this week, none of those were considered good enough considering the soft Cheetahs defence that allowed them to coast through.

The Brumbies edged out the Chiefs with a late try to Matt Toomua, taking the final score to 30-23 after earlier tries from 18 year old debutant Michael Hooper and scrumhalf Josh Valentine. The Valentine try featured a very neat finishing step, and the Toomua try is included simply because it was such a massive moment from the match. Enjoy.

Which would be your number 1 try of the weekend?

  • Thanks for the highlights. Awesome stuff much appreciated.

  • Jo7: I guess if the ref called it out it was legal. I don't know if that was the case or not.

    dhh: I would have called obstruction there too.

    I like the Triggs try for #1.

    Good choice of music too, RD. Well played!

  • Great vid RD.

    JJ, why would you complain? If you have a rugby website where you consistently post better videos than this one then please post the URL so we can all have a look.

    If not, quit your moaning!

  • Ha ha JJ even RD told you! Stop the Bitching!

    The Valentine Step was SICK! Left the guy rooted in the group looking like a right pillock!

    As for the last Brumbies try, all the chiefs had to do was keep one foot behind the ball and its not out! Cannot believe it as would love to have seen them win that one.

  • Chiefs absolutely robbed.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at April 01, 2010 3:05 pm  

  • Great tries as always. The pace of the game is incredible, so bad the don´t broadcast the matches on argentina. Why is it Giteau playing at 12?

  • Pietersen's try is really awesome, great teamwork with goods hands

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at April 05, 2010 4:14 pm  

  • JJ, the guys who run this site do it for free, and we all get to enjoy it,.
    How do you think they feel when they go to all this effort for free then have guys come on and bitch about how the video isn't good enough.
    Besides, what the hell is wrong with this video, it's a well edited video of a bunch of tries?
    What more do you want?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at April 06, 2010 2:31 am  

  • The ball is practically fed to the no 8s feet @ 2.18? Why do southern hemisphere refs in particular not penalize this? It's the equivalent of just throwing the ball to your scrum half at a line-out!
