Catalan Dragons Daryl Millard brought the second IRN-BRU Try Award of the 2012 Super League season to Perpignan for his spectacular last-gasp try against St Helens in round four.

Sky Sports expert Jon Wells selected his top ten tries from rounds four to seven, before whittling it down to Millard's remarkable touchdown.

Speaking about the try, Wells said: "I don't think we've had a winner yet which has been as clear-cut as Daryl's top try. It was its importance and decisive nature within the game itself that made it such a worthy winner.

"It probably wasn't technically the best try across rounds four to seven, in fact it probably wasn't the most aesthetically pleasing of that weekly round. Still, it was the try that best fulfilled the criteria in which top tries should be judged above all else - the ability to have you leap out of your chair with your arms in the air and your mouth wide open in amazement.

"Daryl's last second equalising try for the Catalan Dragons sealed one of the most thrilling comebacks witnessed since Super League began, setting up a touchline conversion to win the game after the final whistle - nailed by Scott Dureau - which took two vital league points back to the south of France."

Millard received his trophy from rugby league legend Paul Sculthorpe ahead of the Catalan Dragons game away to Wakefield on Sunday. The centre opted to donate his &;200 charity money to Les Enfant Malade - an organisation dedicated to helping sick children in France.

On receiving his award Daryl said: "The try was the best of my career so far. For it to set-up a kick to win the game and bring the points back to the South of France, I'm delighted.

"There was a bit of a melee on the other side of the field so I just put my hand up saying 'I've got some space here'. It was a bit of a blur at the end, I just did my best to get there.

"I'm thrilled to accept the IRN-BRU Try Award for rounds four to seven and donate my charity money to Les Enfant Malade which is for sick children in France, who are doing a little bit with the Catalan Dragons this year."

IRN-BRU is the official soft drink of the Stobart Super League and sponsors Super League coverage on Sky Sports.
