Jamie Heaslip's Worldie Against Italy Nominated For Try Of The Year

Jamie Heaslip's Worldie Against Italy Nominated For Try Of The Year

The sensational Jamie Heaslip try against Italy in the RBS Six Nations earlier this year has been nominated for World Rugby Try of the Year.

In March of this year Ireland defeated Italy 58-15 in the Six Nations in a barnstorming performance at the Aviva Stadium. The highlight of the game was undoubtedly the try scored by Jamie Heaslip for Ireland just before half-time when he got on the end of a spectacular move that started in Ireland's own 22 and went through the hands of Jonathan Sexton, Simon Zebo, Jared Payne, Andrew Trimble and Fergus McFadden before Heaslip finished it off.

Below is the try in all its glory:

And now the try has been nominated by World Rugby for the 'Try of the Year' award, with the other two potential winners being TJ Perenara's try for New Zealand against Argentina last month in the Rugby Championship (another spectacular length-0f-the-field effort)...

Stunners one and all, but we think Jamie has to get the nod. That Zebo offload...
