The opening weekend of the 2023 Guinness Six Nations is in the books and it provided dramatic finishes, away wins and some breath-taking ties – now it is your chance to vote for the Try of the Round.
In all, there were 18 tries scored in round one as Ireland won in Wales, Scotland conquered Twickenham and France edged past Italy, all securing bonus points along the way.
We have whittled those 18 tries down to just four, now you have to turn four into one and pick your favourite.
Ange Capuozzo – ITALY v France
Ange Capuozzo can make something out of nothing, and even on a day when France managed to keep him quiet for long periods, he still scored a beauty of a try. Spotting Toulouse teammate Antoine Dupont shifting to the openside behind a stalling rolling maul, Capuozzo darted blind and then stood up Grégory Alldritt on his way to scoring in the corner.
Duhan van der Merwe – England v SCOTLAND (first try)
One of the great Twickenham tries, Duhan van der Merwe received the ball nearly 60 metres out with a line of advancing England defenders coming towards him. He skipped through the first line before using pace, power and footwork to see off five men in all on the way to scoring what he described as the best try of his career. Even better, he popped up with the match-winner later in the game.
Max Malins – ENGLAND v Scotland (first try) Back in an England shirt and finishing off tries, Max Malins impressed on his comeback for Steve Borthwick’s team. His opportunistic volley from a clearing kick and then determination to get to the ball and nudge it on started this move, which fittingly ended with a Marcus Smith cross-kick which the winger reached and got down.
James Lowe – Wales v IRELAND
At 17-3 down, Wales needed something against Ireland and started putting together a long multi-phase attack that forced the visitors backwards all the way to their 22. Just as the home side tried to raise the tempo and spread the ball wide however, James Lowe popped up to pick off Dan Biggar’s pass and race nearly 80 metres for the third Ireland try.
