It proved a tough assignment, but rugby fans stepped up and narrowed down 139 years of historic rugby to select 16 candidates as the Greatest Ever Welsh try.

Our on-line poll was swamped with entries and now is the final chance to decide, officially, exactly who scored the greatest Welsh try of all time.

There will be four rounds of head-to-heads to choose from before the winner is crowned in the final. (Voting form below videos)

The first round kicks off the formalities with eight head-to-heads to be decided.

On one side of the draw there are four head-to-heads with Keith Jarrett’s Five Nations effort against England in 1967 the oldest contender while on the other side of the draw Justin Tipuric’s touchdown against England earlier this year in the Six Nations is the most recent nominee.

“It’s a great idea that should settle a few long running arguments. Having looked at a number of the scores they are typical of the flair that everyone around the world loves and respects in Welsh rugby,” said Wales head coach Wayne Pivac.

“Seeing Gareth Edwards and Phil Bennett showing off their extraordinary skills once again brought a tingle to the spine. Weren’t they fantastic! I’m just glad they didn’t include the Teddy Morgan one from 1905!

“It’s great that there are tries from recent Grand Slam season’s – 2005, 2012 and 2019 – included and I really enjoyed watching Justin Tipuric running 30 metres to the posts against England earlier this year.

“I’m sure fans will have plenty of fun re-living so many special moments and getting involved in the voting.”
