New Zealand Rugby Chief of Rugby Nigel Cass said 2018 has been another outstanding year of rugby with exceptional talent on display throughout the season.
“The 2018 Sky Television Fans Try of the Year short-list is a testament to the breadth and depth of talent at all levels of the game.
“This is a great opportunity to re-live some of the most exciting rugby action in 2018, and for fans to take charge of the game and determine which try they think is the best for 2018.”
SKY Director of Sport, Richard Last says: “It’s been another sensational year of rugby and at SKY Sport we’ve been lucky enough to be right in the thick of it, up and down the country, rain or shine, capturing some of the best tries you’ll ever see.
“From 1st XV rugby to the All Blacks and Black Ferns, this list of tries is just superb. It’s going to be tough picking a favourite, and that’s why we’re leaving it up to you! Good luck to all of the try scorers.”
