It's settled then, here are the 10 best tries of Rugby World Cup 2015

We only had 271 to pick from.

SO THAT’S IT then? The World Cup is all over for another four years. Ireland aside, this was a pretty great tournament at least, with plenty of attacking rugby, close games and underdogs coming good.

There were 271 tries scored in the 48 games along the way, here are 10 that really stick out in the memory.

10. Jonathan Sexton v Canada

Remember back in September when we still believed that only good things were possible in the Millennium Stadium? Great days.

Finishing was the easy part. Trust us, you want to see Drew Mitchell’s powerful run more than AAC’s pick up and touch down.
