WATCH: After more than 14 000 votes were cast, Joaquín Tuculet's score for Argentina in the first test against England in June was named the IRPA (International Rugby Players' Association) Try of the Year 2017.

A breakout that began deep in his team's own 22 after Juan Manuel Leguizamon fielded an England kick and the ball found its way to Matias Orlando, the centre slicing through the visitor's defence with ease. He found Emiliano Boffelli in support, the test debutant straightening the attack before releasing Tuculet to sprint away from the defence to finish off the free-flowing move.

Nominees: Gela Aprasidze (Georgia U20 v Ireland U20), Sean O’Brien (British and Irish Lions v New Zealand), Portia Woodman (New Zealand v USA).
