    1: Foleys try was what Rugby is all about…
    2. The Pakalani try may have seemed straight forward, but was great backline timing and what we need to encourage (although if there should be a book for how times kearns will say “chance out wide” right before someone straightens and runs straight into a defender)
    3. The Kingston try showed good work by several, but really a loose pass was lucked onto, and plenty of loopy passing throughout

    In all, Barnes was very solid… i might add

    Foley’s try for me. It was a great backline play. And an extra commet just for fun, it was Tom Carter who created it with the lovely inside ball, and doesn’t Carter cop some unfair grief on this site sometimes!

      no.. no he does’nt

    Kingston’s try for me. 1) Came from good lead up phases with straight running from f&b and good speed to breakdown 2) Skills on display were good from f&b 3) Decision by Kingston to go low for the corner was good, pass to outside man would have been more defendable.

  • #1 Tah

    I voted for Foley, because it made me sit up and say “wow”

  • Name

    I didn’t realise they scored any tries in 2012. Thanks for posting this as proof.

  • REDinCPT

    apparently AAC isn’t suitable as a wallaby 13 because he doesn’t pass but was able to provide the last pass in 2 of the 3 best waratah’s tries of last year…? i am confused.

    This wasnt only the tahs moment of the season, but the super rugby moment of the season!

  • Johnny-boy

    None of the above :).

    Actually Foleys’ as it shows Scott’s theme permeating – aussie smarts

  • Pedro

    I wonder how many of the best s15 tries are going to be by or against the force. Not trying to insult their defense, but their matches were often the game of the round last year probably because opposing teams would have a crack and theyhad nothing to lose.
    Foley for me, proper running rugby.

  • bazzar

    Foley, because it’s nice to see a good restart from an Australian team.

  • Robson

    Try # 2 for me, switches of play that kept the space open; once again making total nonsense of Dean’s claim that you can’t score tries from the set piece.
