Think the last one is the clear winner really. Personally I think that Rohan’s away to LI was better than the one against Quins, and Luke’s try against Quins could have featured.

Any other good ones people can think of? Marland’s first against Leicester?

Was Luke's try the one that came from a lineout?
Remember thinking that was one of the best tries we'd scored in a while

Although this thread is looking at individual tries, I think the most exciting I have ever seen since professionalism were when we scored three converted tries in the final five minutes at EP, thus changing the result.

I can never remember who our opponents were on that day (Bath? Leeds?) so perhaps someone can refresh may aged and failing memory?

Before professionalism, some of Paul Turner's tries took some beating. :dance:

It was Leeds in (I believe) the Prem-winning year.

If memory serves, Leeds were languishing towards/at the bottom of the table and we were flying high. Nevertheless we went into the last 10 minutes of the game with Leeds something like 2 tries to 1 up.

Cue us scoring 3 in the last 10 to get a BP win and condemn Leeds to no league points. Super sub Chris Mayor may have got the last try.

Unless the result has been embellished in my remembering.

Seems I remembered it as less exciting than it actually was!

I'm fairly sure it actually happened twice that season, against Leeds and Bath. My (fading) memory is that the Bath one was the tighter (in that the tries were scored closer together and nearer the end of the match). That was before the stadium clock showed playing time, so it would get to 0:00 and we'd have no idea how long there was still to play.

The Bath game at EP that 2005/6 season was a stuffing 38-10. The away game on Jan 2 was a memorable win with Sheridan & co shoving the Bath pack off their own ball. Belly tried to drop it but Ted picked him up and carries on driving them back.

The game you're thinking of Major was a year later, 13 April 2007 , and finished 25 - 23.

Robbo scored the last try on his last appearance - sadly he misssed the conversion.

No. He’s thinking of Bath. That may have been the result but we were struggling. Mayor scored a key try off the bench.
Mayor turned the game against Leeds as well I recall. Think Todd scored and Wiggy.

Here's the video - includes the conversion attempt. It's not in HD!

Is Wayne Barnes wearing cartoon bank robber shirt ?

Yeah Mayor ripped Leeds to shreds! Such an exciting player in attack.

Possibly the most entertaining 10 mins of rugby I can remember watching.

I always reckon that the best 40 mins of attacking rugby we’ve played was the Parker pen semi final v Gloucester played at Northampton, from about 20-60 mins we were unplayable, or possibly from 20-40? Long time ago.

If anyone can link some video from that game it’d be amazing.

Is my aged memory playing tricks on me or didn't that try also relieve us of the last mathematical risk of relegation?

I think you're correct - talk about a horrible season. Champions to avoiding relegation.....

The last game of the season was Quins away - as we were safe we duly put out literally a team of kids and rested all the big players and got absolutely stuffed - it was quite embarrasing being sat there with my mates in our Sale shirts. We drunk a lot of beer that day (lovely day from memory weather wise)

Some great memories there, but one try that stands out above all others (imho) was a try scored at the Mad Stad v London Irish in a 36-32 win (2001/02 Season). Started from a defensive scrum going backwards on our 5 metre line on the left wing and finished 130 yards away on the right wing by Cueto. I've searched forlornly for any footage of this game on You Tube. It was on T.V. so should be out there somewhere.

Well it started pretty well as I recall!

OK we lost the opening game away to eventual champions Leicester, but then won something like five of the next six.

And then within one week Charlie, Big Ted and Jason White all broken for the season while playing in the Autumn Internationals. Didn't we end up so short at one stage that we played a European match with injured players on the bench?

I was at the Twickenham game when Charlie got injured - we lost a lot of big names that season.
