I don’t see how any of these match the Blues try but it’s in 3rd so far.

Yes Nottingham scored 100m out against a team which couldn’t tackle and shipped tonnes of points over 50 a match on average.

Jersey already had an overlap helped by a poor pass picked up off the floor.

Pirates saw the space behind and a couple of chip kicks.

Who selected this Pirates try for the shortlist?
I could pick at least 6 tries and I am only counting home games where the Pirates scored a far better try than the one that got through to this final selection.
It seems like a pointless competition if they can't even nominate the best try for the final vote.

I would pick the Blues try if it were any other team who’d have scored it. It doesn’t get anything of note, so I would always vote for the best try every week irrespective of the team scoring. Which would you’d pick?

Spittle was a good solo effort of running 100m but he was playing a team who probably wouldn’t even put much of a fight in ND1! My Nan with a zimmerframe could probably had run that one in with those feeble tackles. Wink

Blues actually started with a turnover, spin pass from prop to other prop (missing lane). Tighthead fed it to 13 Hirskyj-Douglas who needed fast hands to No. 8 Fa’soliva. He offloads 1 handed out of the tackle to supporting tighthead who runs over with a Samoan sidestep Knights 10 and then passes it to the winger to get all the glory! Forwards do most of the work for the back to get the name in the record books. Isn’t that a proper rugby try?

The skill level for the Pirates try was first class, in particular the 2nd kick. Quick hands, at speed, under pressure and weighted perfectly. The Jersey try was a quality finish from distance, what you don’t see is the work done to create the space and the overlap, but the finishing was first class. Blues has to be pick of the bunch, mainly because who the inter play was between...... oh I miss rugby!!!

Nottingham has now gone to 33%
Blues 28%
Reds 25%
Pirates 14%

16h 50m left

Looks like it’s Nottingham’s

Had the Nottinghnam try been scored against meaningful opposition it would indeed have been a great try. I suspect that the people voting do not realise the situation - but there you go.

The best part of the Nottingham try was the player who stopped the Yorkshire penalty (which was going into touch within 5m of the try line) from landing in touch, but they missed that off the clip!

Doesn’t wind me up. Just surprised that we want to showcase the best of the championship with that, no wonder we don’t get any TV and National press coverage. Makes our division look dire and helps to back up the RFU decision to pull funding.

Last year the best try, which also happened to be the best try of the decade (from Jersey) went global. Clap

The winning club have posted a slightly longer clip that includes the above-mentioned feat...

That was a real stand out try.

I remember the season when Cambridge won promotion back to Nat 1.
We won the NCA try of the season - but not with the try that won the club try of the season.
The club members voted for the critical try that gave us victory over 2nd place Old Albanians at St Albans in the 84th minute which won the season. It also started in our 22 so it was a pretty good try.

I forget which flashy try won the league try - it was that sort of season we had so many.

Nat 1 was a shock, especially as we lost our DOR . much of our coaching team and a third of our players to Coventry.

Rowland had a three year plan to get Cambridge promoted - I am expecting great things from Coventry next season

High risk, nearly gave away a try!! Good effort, even though the interplay in the Blues try made it equally as good, it not better.
