Drama was not in short supply on the fourth weekend of Guinness Six Nations action as all three games provided sensational tries and blockbuster entertainment.
Grand-Slam chasing Wales got Round 4 underway in Rome as Wayne Pivac’s men maintained their perfect record with a seven-try 48-7 victory against Italy at the Stadio Olimpico.
All eyes then turned to Twickenham as England and France played out another classic Le Crunch, with the hosts coming from behind to secure a memorable 23-20 victory.
Ireland rounded off the weekend’s entertainment with a hard-fought 27-24 triumph in Edinburgh, with Johnny Sexton kicking the winning points with just two minutes left to play.
And the time has now come for you to have your say once again on which of the many fantastic tries was the best, with all four of the Round 4 contenders below.
DAMIAN PENAUD – ENGLAND 23-20 FRANCE
England may have crushed France’s Grand Slam ambitions on Saturday but Les Bleus provided another reminder of why they are one of the most exciting attacking teams in world rugby.
Starting with a lineout just outside the England 22, France executed a perfect training ground routine as Julien Marchand threw long to Gael Fickou, who offloaded to Antoine Dupont.
From there the ball went to Matthieu Jalibert and the No.10 ran a superb line to suck in two England defenders before finding Damian Penaud to finish a brilliant move in the corner.
ANTHONY WATSON – ENGLAND 23-20 FRANCE
England winger Anthony Watson has been on fire during the 2021 Guinness Six Nations and his fourth try of the Championship against France was arguably his best yet.
Press Conference: Jones salutes Farrell and Itoje leadership
Clever play for George Ford released Henry Slade through the wall of blue shirts and while the centre was stopped in his tracks, the ball was quickly recycled by Ben Youngs.
Ford was once again in position to receive the ball and spotting Watson in space on the right, threw an inch perfect pass to allow the winger to score on his 50th England cap.
ANTOINE DUPONT – ENGLAND 23-20 FRANCE
It took France only 80 seconds to make their mark at Twickenham and it was that man Antoine Dupont yet again who orchestrated another moment of magic for the visitors.
The scrum-half started the move by quickly recycling the ball left and quick hands provided Teddy Thomas with space to race down the wing and chip over the onrushing Max Malins.
Thomas’ kick bounced perfectly into the path of Dupont, who was able to push the ball out of the grasp of Anthony Watson before regathering to crash over the whitewash again.
HUW JONES – SCOTLAND 24-27 IRELAND
Scotland looked down and out as the hour approached in Edinburgh, with Ireland holding a commanding 24-10 lead before Huw Jones made an instant impact off the bench.
Quick ball from Ali Price saw Scotland stretch the Ireland defence before Stuart Hogg forced the visitors to backtrack further and give Jones space on the right wing.
From there, Jones received the ball from his skipper with plenty still to do but cut effortlessly inside James Lowe and beat another defender before holding off Garry Ringrose to score.
