It’s back. Our video recap brimming with analysis as we dissect what we perceive as the best try from each game.

Just the four games for round 17 but all entertaining and with plenty of good tries.

Sam Williams goes it alone for the Canberra Raiders against the Manly Sea Eagles.

Solo tries are often a tremendous sight to see and Sam Williams first try of the game was a pearler.

Taking the line on, his dummy does just enough to force Manly back-rower Jack Gosiewski in the opposite direction.

Spotting the slight gap now created, Williams slices through and beats Gosiewski in the process who cannot recover.

At speed and close to the line, the diving Reuben Garrick cannot stop Williams.


Hame Sele and Thomas Burgess combine for the South Sydney Rabbitohs in rout of the North Queensland Cowboys.

It is a thing of beauty to see two forwards combining for a try and the subtlety of Hame Sele does the trick here.

As he gets the ball and takes the line on, having only slightly drawn in Coen Hess towards him, his pass does the rest.

The pass finds a bullocking Thomas Burgess who is able to catch Hess flat-footed and power over Shane Wright.

Burgess does the rest and coast to the line but it was Sele’s lead-up work that produced the try.


Lachlan Lewis pulls off tremendous kick and chase despite Canterbury Bulldogs’ loss to the Sydney Roosters.

Channelling his inner Billy Slater or inner Jarryd Hayne, Lachlan Lewis produced a magical chip-and-chase to score a lovely try.

Recalled back into the side, there is more to the try than merely regathering your own kick.

Even before he has received the ball, Lewis has identified that Joseph Manu, playing fullback, is not back in cover.

He gets the pass, feigns to his left for a pass ever so slightly, then chips ahead and puts the foot down.

Lewis gets to the ball first having the momentum and scores a wonderful try in a gallant Bulldogs performance.


A lovely set play by the New Zealand Warriors sees Roger Tuivasa-Sheck slice through in a loss to Cronulla Sharks.

The end product was a try to Roger Tuivasa-Sheck but it was the leadup to the try from two others that created the play.

Sean O’Sullivan takes the pass from dummy half at speed towards the line and coaxes Toby Rudolf towards him.

As that is happening, Bunty Afoa runs a perfect decoy line that forces Teig Wilton to make a defensive decision.

As the pass is played behind Afoa to Tuivasa-Sheck, Rudolf is unable to make up the ground and scrambles but misses Tuivasa-Sheck.

Braydon Trindall can do nothing but watch Tuivasa-Sheck fly through the gap and past him to score.
