Round 2 of the inaugural Autumn Nations Cup produced tries of all shapes and sizes but we’ve whittled them down to just four that are in the running for Try of the Round.

Now it’s up to you, the fans, to decide which score is worthy of that crown – Jonny May’s length-of-the-field run, Louis Rees-Zammit’s maiden Test try, Virimi Vakatawa’s powerful finish or Jacob Stockdale’s score against England.

You can make your selection at the bottom of this page but first, a reminder of what the four tries in contention looked like.

Jonny May – ENGLAND v Ireland 

Jonny May had already lit up Twickenham with a brilliant catch from a cross-field kick for the first try of the game and, within four minutes, he had another in spectacular style.

It stemmed from an attacking Ireland lineout which went loose, allowing England to build a counter-attack.

What followed was remarkable as the wing collected possession inside his own 22, sprinted past a despairing Bundee Aki tap tackle and kicked infield. May won the race with Jamison Gibson-Park, kicked on again from 10 metres out and gleefully dived on the bouncing ball over the line to complete a brilliant individual score.

Jacob Stockdale – England v IRELAND

Jacob Stockdale was left on the bench for Ireland’s trip to London but he put his name in the frame for a recall with a superb late try.

It was a neat piece of footwork which set up the try Ireland’s second-half territory deserved as two replacements combined, Stockdale claiming Billy Burns’ chip before sprinting clear of the covering England defence.

Louis Rees-Zammit – WALES v Georgia 

Louis Rees-Zammit and Rhys Webb both crossed for tries as Wales ended their six-game losing streak by overcoming a stubborn Georgia side at Parc y Scarlets.

Rees-Zammit went over on his first international start midway through the first half, sliding over after a fizzing pass out wide from Callum Sheedy.

The 19-year-old impressed throughout the contest and could keep his place for this weekend’s clash against England.

Virimi Vakatawa – Scotland v FRANCE 

It was a cagey game between Scotland and France on Sunday, with the hosts bravely denying Les Bleus with an impressive defensive stand just before half-time.

But France broke through almost immediately after the break when, from the scrum, Vincent Rattez took an inside ball and raced through before releasing the powerful Vakatawa to crash over.

Scotland captain Stuart Hogg had tried gamely to hold up the centre but eventually lost the fight, Ramos converting to open up a seven-point advantage.
