The Aviva Premiership offered a variety of pulsating games from Round 19 with some sensational scores.
Saracens, Exeter Chiefs and Wasps all guaranteed themselves a place in this season playoffs with wins against Harlequins, Bristol and Northampton Saints respectively. Worcester edged themselves further away from relegation after picking a try bonus-point in their defeat to Sale Sharks last Friday and Bristol remain eight points adrift of safety after just missing out at Sandy Park.
Try Line Talk Rugby Correspondent Thomas Branston picks his ‘Try of the Week’
It’s hard to hand pick the tries from from Round 19 with many more great finishes but from these five tries, all players showed individual prowess and efficiency to score.
For me, it’s an easy winner, it has to be Christian Wade’s against Northampton on Sunday. With Bryon McGuigan’s score following closely behind.
The two tries were very similar in regards to being one on one with the last man. Both chips were weighted perfectly but the blistering pace of Wade made his look so much better. Yes he had some luck with the bounce after it evaded Nic Groom but you can’t take away his initiative and quick thinking in such a tight space after receiving a poor pass out wide, that is why I have picked Wade.
