Round 4 of the Guinness Six Nations saw three more away wins as Wales, France and Ireland all came away victorious.

Wales opened their account in 2023 with a 29-17 win over Italy in Rome, before France rewrote the history books on their way to beating England 53-10.

Then on Sunday, Ireland kept up their bid for a Grand Slam, overcoming a stubborn Scotland and a string of injuries to make it four from four with a 22-7 success.

There were 18 tries in total across the three games and we have whittled them down to four nominees for the Guinness Six Nations Try of the Round.

So get voting!

Taulupe Faletau (Italy v WALES)

Wales’ first win of the campaign came in Rome thanks to some fine performances from their experienced campaigners, with Player of the Match Rhys Webb at his sniping best to set up Taulupe Faletau for the bonus-point score.

The scrum-half, starting in the Championship for the first time in six years, spotted a gap in the Italian fringe defence as he has done so often over the years. His trademark dart saw him stride into the Italy 22, before feeding Faletau for one of the simpler finishes of his career.

Damian Penaud (England v FRANCE) – second try

France ran in seven tries on a special day at Twickenham and they saved the best for last as Damian Penaud brought up the half-century mark.

From a lineout on the England 22, Thibaud Flament leapt highest before Grégory Alldritt shifted the ball to Maxime Lucu. The scrum-half then brought Yoram Moefana into play. The tempo raised from there, Moefana passing out the back to Thomas Ramos, who then fed Ethan Dumortier, who shipped it to Melvyn Jaminet.

England had been opened up by now and Jaminet delivered out wide for Penaud to race in for his second of the afternoon.

Huw Jones (SCOTLAND v Ireland)

Scotland ultimately fell short against Ireland, but they struck the first blow when Huw Jones got over for his fourth try of the Championship so far.

After good work from the forwards to power up to the Ireland line, Scotland earned penalty advantage. That was the signal to go wide and Sione Tuipulotu collected Ben White’s pass with the option of Jones on his shoulder or Russell in behind. He fed the former who crashed through to score.

Mack Hansen (Scotland v IRELAND)

Ireland’s comeback began just before the half-hour with a stunning finish from Mack Hansen. After a series of powerful surges in the midfield, Ireland had sucked in the Scottish defence.

Spotting the space out wide, Hugo Keenan flung the ball out to Hansen on the right, and the winger withstood the tackle of Duhan van der Merwe to finish spectacularly in the corner.

So those are your four nominees, now it is time to get voting!
