SIX NATIONS: SIX games down, 20 tries and here’s our pick of the bunch after two rounds of the old tournament.

6. Gareth Davies (Wales v Scotland)

Pace, quick-thinking and a step that turned a defender inside out from 15 metres away. Mwah!

5. Virimi Vakatawa (France v Italy)

That step.

4. Jack Nowell (England v Scotland)

Good hands, nice dummy carriers, good line, powerful finish.

3. George North (Wales v Scotland)

Nice set-piece play (from 20 seconds in the below clip), but North must have been expecting to have to mow a tackler down rather than just sidestep them.

2. Duncan Taylor (Scotland v Wales)

Lovely line off a perfectly timed pass and that killer step was a thorougly deserved reward for Taylor.

1. Owen Farrell (England v Italy)

The finish is fine, but this try should be claimed by any English player involved in the series of lightning quick rucks in the build-up to Jamie George’s excellent offload.
