One of our favourite Australians here at balls is Seanny Maloney of Rugby HQ. The same Seanny Maloney that brought us the wonderful Top 5 moments and the plays of the week. With the Australians coming to town this week, we'd thought that we'd honour Seanny with some top 5's of our own, starting with the Top 5 Australian tries of 2014.
Play the tape Mr. Videoman.
5. Israel Folau v Wales
What can you say about Izzy Folau? Israel Folau broke his mini try scoring drought with this lovely delayed run just off Michael Hooper, anticipating the offload and cutting the Welsh defense to shreds. Try for the Wallabies.
4. Rob Horne v South Africa
With time running out on the Australian's in their game against South Africa, what followed was a frantic five minutes which ended in a beautiful Rob Horne finish to clinch the game for the Wallabies. Oh you beauty.
3. Michael Hooper v France
Michael Cheika will be looking for more of this. It starts with the Waratahs number 8 Wyclif Palu taking the ball into contact. Nick Phipps, the Waratahs scrumhalf, feeds it to Kurtley Beale, who plays for the Waratahs. Beale gives it inside to his Tahs teammate Bernard Foley. Foley returns it to Beale who then supplies Waratahs captain Michael Hooper with a delightful score. Waratahs and Wallabies coach Michael Cheika will want something similar against Ireland.
2. Michael Hooper v Argentina
Video complete with analysis from Australians. I'll let him explain it to you, but for those who just want to enjoy a brilliant team multi phase try, it's at the very start of the video with no analysis.
1. Israel Folau v France
Will Skelton is 6 foot a million and the lad displays some delightful hands. For a big man.
