Deadliest Attackers in Europe

Europe's club competitions are coming to a close with the Premiership hosting the semi-finals this weekend while the TOP14 heads into it's the final round of the regular season while Celtic Park hosts the PRO14 Final. 

With the European season drawing to a close we take a look at some of the deadliest attackers in Europe judging on their try involvements so far this season.

More specifically their tries and try assist tallies from their domestic competition (Not including Europe).

16 - Teddy Iribaren (1 try, 15 assists), Sofiane Guitoune (11 tries, 5 assists), Danny Care (8 tries, 8 assists), Danny Cipriani (3 tries, 13 assists)

With Maxime Machenaud missing large parts of the season through injury, Iribaren has been the main feature at scrumhalf for Racing 92 and has produced a nice return for the Parisian-club picking up the highest total of try assists in the competition.

Toulouse's Sofiane Guitoune has been one of the form players in France this year and his numbers show that as he is level second with Simon Zebo in the overall tries scoring list but has also produced 5 assists for the club.

The two 'Dannys' lit up the Premiership with Care grabbing 8 tries on his way to beating Ugo Monye's Harlequins try scoring tally while Danny Cipriani scored three and assists 13 on his way to picking up the Premiership player of the season award.

17 - George Horne (9 tries, 8 assists), Sibahle Maxwane (14 tries, 3 assists), Thomas Ramos (6 tries, 11 assists)

Goerge Horne has had an impressive season helping Glasgow to the final as he has been directly involved in 17 tries in just 15 matches for the club. 

Thomas Ramos has had just as an impressive impact at fullback and flyhalf for Toulouse reaching his tally in 18 games while Maxwane scored his 14 tries and bagged 3 assists in 20 games.

19 - Johnny McNicholl (11 tries, 8 assists), Sebastien Bezy (5 tries, 14 assists), Cobus Reinach - 12 tries, 7 assists

The Scarlets had far from an ideal season but Johnny McNicholl was certainly a shining light in the Scarlets backline bagging 11 tries and 8 assists in 21 games for the Welsh region.

Another Toulouse back cracks the list with Bezy starring in a star stubbed backline scoring 5 tries and picking up 14 assists.

Finally the inform South African, Cobus Reinach had a knack of grabbing intercepts this season as he finished the regular season tie with Denny Solomona as the league's top try scorer while also chipping in his 7 assists.

22 - Shaun Venter (10 tries, 12 assists)

The Cheetahs scrumhalf Shaun Venter is the only player in Europe's top three leagues to have scored and assisted 10 or more tries this season.

Venter did leave it to their final game of the season to round of his 10 tries as he crossed over for a brace against the Southern Kings.

Venter finished the season having been involved in 22 tries in 21 of the Cheetahs' PRO14 matches.

24 - Jamison Gibson-Park (5 tries, 19 assists)

Leinster scrumhalf Gibson-Park assisted more tries in Europes top three leagues this season and could reach the 20 mark if he is chosen in the Leinster 23 to face Glasgow this weekend.

What's most impressive about Gibson-Park's numbers is that he has featured in just 14 of Leinster's 22 PRO14 encounters this season!
