Vote For The Rugby Play Of The Weekend

It was another frenetic weekend on the international rugby front. Incredible tries, massive hits and in Rome, one legitimately shocking result. We've chosen our 5 favourite plays of the weekend. We want to know what you thought was the best.

1. Tadhg Furlong bulldozering most of the All Blacks pack

Ireland were held tryless by the stingy All Blacks defense but that's not to say there were no highlights for the men in green. Tadhg Furlong's first half rampage especially stood out, as he put most of the All Blacks pack into a world of pain.

2. Tevita Kundriani's try versus France

Sometimes moments of brilliance take place in rugby and one came in Paris last night. Australia identified space on the right wing against France and shifted the ball across to Tevita Kuridrani, who with space fast escaping, proceeded to lift his entire body off the ground, angling himself in such a way as to reach over the tryline while cushioning a cover tackle. Simply superb.

3. Malakai Fekitoa try for New Zealand

Fekitoa finished off a move of class to give New Zealand their opening try in Dublin. A series of close-in drives sucked in the Irish defence before a crossfield kick of perfect accuracy from Beauden Barrett found Fekitoa waiting to collect and pounce.

4. Beauden Barrett try for New Zealand

Barrett’s try was controversial as it still remains unclear if the outhalf got the correct grounding. But the build-up was sublime. A rock solid scrum, a pinpoint pass from Aaron Smith, and Barrett slicing past Garry Ringrose and Conor Murray to score.

5. Bryan Habana's try versus Italy

It was Italy’s day in Florence as they claimed a first-ever win against the Big Three with a well deserved 20-18 win against South Africa.

But the moment of the match came from the losing team with Bryan Habana finishing a move of beauty from the Boks, before they went on to throw the match away against the country now rechristened 'Conor O'Shea's Italy'.
