Cheslin Kolbe’s stunning first try for Toulouse against Ulster Rugby has been voted your Champions Try of the Round for the opening weekend of the Heineken Champions Cup season.
The South African’s score landed hundreds of votes and was chosen ahead of excellent tries from Donavan Taofifenua (Racing 92) and Ian Madigan (Ulster Rugby).
Kolbe’s try was also the pick of beIN SPORTS pundit Rodolphe Pires, who said: “For me, Cheslin Kolbe’s try against Ulster Rugby is a clear winner from Round 1. Not just for its individual brilliance, but also because the opportunity was created by teamwork.
“Toulouse are quick to exploit a turnover with intelligent link play by Sofiane Guitoune and Thomas Ramos and then, the focus is on Kolbe’s outstanding ability to produce a score out of virtually nothing.
“With his speed and footwork, we all witnessed what was a superb try last Friday evening by unquestionably the world’s best wing.”
Voting for Champions Try of the Round for Round 2 will take place from Monday morning.
