How the hell does Le Roux's try get in? It looks nice, but it was 15 v 13. Unless you're Wales against Australia, it's easier to score than to not score.

Good analogy Opti! I voted for Phillips, funny to watch Pennell pushed over onto his bum, even though I like him.

Also quite nice to him do well when his transfer here was questioned.

Quite a tough week to choose. I have voted Philips naturally but Afoa's try is a truly sublime offload from Owen Williams. Leicester may be kicking themselves for a while yet as to why they let him and Burns go and replaced them with the Fords! One is away with England 1/3 of the season and the other is no near match!

Sinoti Sinoti's is also great for that step that turns Short inside out alone! It looks to me that Sinoti doesn't have great top speed given Short does catch him back up but his acceleration and stepping is great!

Also re. the comment about Le Roux's score. I do agree on this but it's a first phase try so is still nice. I actually thought Wade nearly bombed it by running so sideways initially! Luckily he got his arms through otherwise it may have been quite embarrassing!

I thought Walker's try was an absolute classic. Showed the ability to run the entire length of the pitch following a big hoof up field. What skill !

It's between Philips and Afoa for me. All of rugby is contained therein. Philips' brute strength and determination. The skill of not just Williams in the offload, but Afoa picking it up from knee-height with one hand.

As much as I should vote for a Bath player and a fellow forward, I went Sinoti for the side step and the fact that it was against Exeter!

Removing the BBW misted goggles Id say Sinoti Sinoti. Power, pace, step, and strength in the finish.Though Phillips grizzly bear impression was hugely enjoyable, he was a grizzly bear being tackled by what appeared to be a couple of small squirrels with Worcester shirts on.

It's a shame the clip of Phillips' try doesn't include Lahiff's clearout just before, which makes it even more impressive as a team try.
