A “tries of the decade” in rugby video has been released and it’s filth
A video has been released by Andrew Forde looking at some of the tries of the decade. The scores are pure filth.
The decade has seen some very outrageous scores come our way and this video highlights some of the best of them in our sport. It really does make you realise how high quality our sport is and some of the scores that we witnessed were truly impressive!
The video shows around 12 tries and they show of the best scores from either continent.
Any reason for us to get a meme slagging Leicester…

Like we said, there were some phenomenal tries in this complilation.
Our favourite try of the bunch has to be the score from Dillian Leyds in the Stormers game.
Leyds, who spent time with the Western Force in 2014, was a prolific schoolboy rugby player with Bishops College. His highlights reel on youtube is well worth the watch, showing the kind of talent he displayed as a playmaker at a young age.
Leyds was just 24 at the time and was forging a career for himself on the wing, and had a great season so far. This pass, setting up a try for SP Marais, is arguably one of the best tryscoring passes we’ve seen in many a year.
It looked more like something out of an unrealistic rugby video game, as he somehow hit the target with a 20m reverse pass, from the ground. It was a sensational play, in what was a brilliant game of rugby from both sides.
Another brilliant try that we saw was Julian Savea’s try against France int he 2015 World Cup.
This was when Savea was at the height of his powers playing on the wing for New Zealand and he just couldn’t stop scoring at this stage. This try was one of many in a demolition against the Northern Hemisphere team.
There are some truly fantastic scores in this compilation.
