Wales' greatest ever try

Phil Bennett

Scrum V gave you the chance to vote for Wales' greatest ever Five/Six Nations try.

Phil Bennett's 1977 try against Scotland at Murrayfield took the prize - see that try, and the nine runners-up.

Pinned deep in their own 22, Wales counter-attacked through JPR, Steve Fenwick and Gerald Davies, who side-stepped and jinked upfield before Bennett handled for the first time.

David Burcher, the Newport centre, was next, then back to Fenwick, who released Bennett with a brilliant pass.

Finally, Phil did for two Scotland defenders with a peach of a side-step. "The try of the Championship," declared Bill McLaren.
