What makes a great try? An individual effort? Great team work? A match winner in the last minute?
The answer is all of them can lead to great tries. Whether it shows the speed a player possesses in the open, the exceptional skills of the players involved or a great planned set move, a great try can surface from any beginning or any category.
Over the years there have been hundreds of these scored in international rugby. But it tends to be those that are extra special that become truly memorable.
This list looks at 25 of these tries. While there may be others that have been breathtaking, few could argue that any of these don't deserve their inclusion amongst the greatest tries ever scored.
Credit is given to the player involved for individual tries. For team tries; however, it is the whole team that is given credit as the finishing player isn't always the one that made the try what it was in these cases.
To make for a more entertaining article, only tries with video footage available were considered for the list.
