The Rugby World Cup is not even two weeks old, yet fans have already been treated to an array of tries, brilliance in attack and defiant defending across all four pools.

With 110 tries already scored in 19 games at an average of over five per game, England 2015 is already threatening the record for the most tries scored in a single tournament, with Australia 2003 currently holding the record of 332 tries across the full 96 matches at an average of 3.45 per game.

So where better to start breaking down the second round of fixtures than to look at the best offloads, with the top four simply brilliant to watch. The four teams involved in the best offloads of the round range from Fiji to the All Blacks.

Fiji may have suffered defeat to Australia, but it was still a chance for the giant lock Leone Nakarawa to shop off his passing skills as he offloaded the ball mid-tackle to teammate Peceki Yato as they attacked the Wallabies midway through the second half.

Second up is prolific offloader Sonny Bill Williams, who made sure he took his chance to impress on his first start at the World Cup with a shuddering run that barged Namibian hooker Torsten van Jaarsveld out of his way before passing the ball out the back of his hand to centre partner Malakai Fekitoa.

Third up the highest try scorer from the 2007 Rugby World Cup in South Africa’s Bryan Habana. After a lovely move down the blindside against Samoa, Habana looked to have been caught by a combination tackle from flanker Jack lam and scrum-half Kahn Fotuali’I, only to sling the ball around his head and over his shoulder to release full-back Willie Le Roux.

Finally, Australia’s creative fly-half sows his sublime handling skills after taking a Kurtley Beale chip before quickly offloading to wing Joe Tomane to crash over for a try.
