There were plenty of scintillating scores in all three games but after narrowing it down, it’s time to have your say and vote for your Try of Round 3. Check out the four nominees below.

Flavio Vaccari – Scotland v ITALY
Italy won their first match of the 2021 Championship and in some style with a mightily impressive 43-3 win over Scotland.
And it was Flavio Vaccari’s unbelievable first score that got things up and running just five minutes in.
The Italian backline ran from deep inside their own 22 and put on two out the back door offloads to release the speedster who steamed home from inside his own half.
Lorenzo Pani – Scotland v ITALY
Full-back Lorenzo Pani was the man who set Vaccari away and soon he was diving over for another sensational try.
Wing Simone Gesi skipped down the left wing before grubbering through for Pani who won the foot race and showed off his own piece of footballing skill before diving on the ball over the line.
Thibault Debaes – FRANCE v Wales
France outclassed Wales in Cardiff with a 36-19 victory which included five languid tries.
The pick of the bunch, however, was fly-half Thibault Debaes’ mazy run just after the break which saw him dance down the unguarded blindside before shimmying his way past the Welsh defence and over the line.
Ewan Richards – Ireland v ENGLAND
Flanker Ewan Richards grabbed a double as England outmuscled Ireland 24-15 to leapfrog their opponents at the top of the table.
His first effort was teed up beautifully by Worcester Warriors No.10 Fin Smith who sprayed a lovely pass off the left hand to Arthur Relton who sent it on via fellow winger Tom Litchfield to Richards who crashed over in the corner as England capitalised on an overlap.
