With the Six Nations
set to get underway on Saturday, there's going to be a lot of tries between this weekend and St. Patrick's Day when the tournament comes to a close. Speaking of St.Patrick's Day
, an Irish player still holds the record for the most tries scored in the Six Nations. Regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, Brian O'Driscoll captained Ireland from 2003 to 2012 before retiring in 2014, having played 133 test matches (and eight more for the Lions). He holds the Six Nations record for the most tries scored with 26 and he was chosen as the player of the tournament in 2006, 2007 and 2009. Scottish wing
Ian Scott Smith comes second on the try list with 24 in total, all scored in the then Five Nations between 1924 and 1933.
