The 2022 Guinness Six Nations started with a bang as Ireland, Scotland and France all began their campaigns with mesmerising victories.
There were tries aplenty across Round 1 as Ireland impressively beat Wales 29-7, Scotland edged past England 20-17 and France bested Italy 37-10 in Paris, but we’ve narrowed the list down to the four best scores.
Now, we want you to vote for which of those four is most worthy of being the 2022 Guinness Six Nations Try of Round 1.
BEN WHITE – SCOTLAND 20-17 ENGLAND
Scotland won back-to-back Calcutta Cup matches for the first time since 1984 as they dramatically beat England 20-17 at BT Murrayfield and Ben White’s first-half try was a big reason why.
Off the bench for his international debut, the scrum-half took just five minutes to write his name into Scotland lore by finishing off a 17th-minute move that was started on the training ground.
Scotland caught England cold with a quickly-taken lineout on halfway and pounced on an over-matched defence as Stuart Hogg fed Darcy Graham, who drifted past a couple of defenders, put on the afterburners, danced past Joe Marchant and flicked a pass inside for the supporting White to dot down. Sublime.
GARRY RINGROSE – IRELAND 29-7 WALES
Ireland made a statement with their 29-7 triumph over Wales and Garry Ringrose’s scintillating score just before the hour mark was one of the highlights.
The centre caught a perfectly-timed pass from Bundee Aki and cut through the Wales defence with a scything run as he sprinted out to the right before curving back inside to slide between two defenders and force his way over the line.
TOMMASO MENONCELLO – FRANCE 37-10 ITALY
Italy may have lost their Round 1 encounter in Paris but they led France midway through the first half after 19-year-old Tommaso Menoncello had a debut to remember by becoming the youngest scorer in the Championship for 55 years, with a brilliant try.
After France full-back Melvyn Jaminet spilled a high ball, Federico Ruzza carried deep into the 22 and, a couple of phases later, Paolo Garbisi’s perfect cross-field kick was collected by Menoncello who somehow kept his toes in play before dotting down in the corner.
DAMIAN PENAUD – FRANCE 37-10 ITALY
After the shock of Menoncello putting the Azzurri into the lead, France hit back with five tries of their own and Damian Penaud’s stunning score on 67 minutes was the pick of the bunch.
Yoram Moefana accelerated before putting Penaud into space. He then exchanged passes with scrum-half Antoine Dupont to beat the remaining defence, with the winger going over on the right.
