Quite possibly the best try ever done by a Northern Hemisphere player. Here Trevor Woodman shows the backs how its REALLY done. Quite possibly Northampton's finest hour as well!

Anyway, sod your Carlos Spencer-esque highly speculative and arrogant chucks between the legs disguised as "works of genius", see how it goes down with dance master Treva! :bana:

An impressive try indeed but not the best and for sure not forever.

Watch his piggy little trotters do a dance before he crashes over the line and rolls in the muck.

I think he burned the ghost of Ben Cohen for pace on the outside.

Dan Richmond is rubbish so handing off him is nothing to shout about. Paul Grayson was never renound for his defending, so that isn&#39;t spectacular either.

And then Nick Beal - well let&#39;s be honest, you can&#39;t go in high on a rampaging prop and expect to come out on top. It&#39;s a shame Brucie wasn&#39;t the last man, then this video would be listed under C for Crunching Tackle.

No, I think it would be filed under S for "steamrollered on the way to the line." Nobody can beat Woodman for pace or power and it seems! I agree with Shtove, truly, a stunning example of dynamic running!

Bah! That try is child&#39;s play.

This is the best try ever, either code, NH or SH!

Never seen that before - magic. It even has &#39;dog on the pitch&#39;.

Pity they didn&#39;t leave in the slow-mo at the end.

Most amazing try considering their position has to be Richard Bands try at Dunedin 03, SA prop runs from the half way line bursting through tackles and scores in the corner. Pure class :bravo:

That&#39;s Sean Long. He jumped on the mascot and took his head off. He tried to take the goal kick with it on but the ref stopped him. :lol:

So many to choose from ... Gareth Edwards for the Barbarians v New Zealand in 1973, Jim Calder for Scotland at Cardiff in 1982, Phillipe Saint-Andre for France at Twickenham - when was it? 1993? Maybe 1991?

And, reminding myself that Japan is also in the NH, Endo for Japan against Wales in the recent World Cup; perhaps the pick of the bunch.

I&#39;m not a follower of Rugby League, but didn&#39;t Martin Offiah score a spectcular try in a Cup Final about 12 or so years ago?

That full back got owned. Note to him, don&#39;t go high on a rampaging prop.

Doubt him noting anything is worth much now... He&#39;s been retired for 5 seasons.

As is the try scorer...actually, are any of the protagonists in that best-try-ever™ video still playing 1st class rugby?

Bullitt

Shane Drahm. That&#39;s about it.

He doesn&#39;t count on account of him being crap.

This one is always enjoyable (especially because of the opposition). :blum:

Well what is the most interesting in this try actually is the Toulouse game rather than Hickie&#39;s counter attack which shows the good execution of the recycling of a turnover.

Stoddarts try. One of the best this season. Great support play, good offloading and a superb pass from Peel.

Miles Benjamin&#39;s 2nd try at the weekend for Worcester v Bath... was very good
