Need someone to confirm but for Hunmgarian it seems to be cél or célt = goal ( célt could be plural?)

Japanese: トライ ( torai )
For Mandarin Chinese it seems to be 达阵 / Dá zhèn - literally "touchdown"

Is this cheating? https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Try_(rugby)#/languages

We use "try" in Dutch. I wondered if they used a literal translation in Afrikaans like they do in French and German etc. But it seems that they use the word "drie" which means three (from the number of points it used to be worth).

Armenia: Փորձ (P'vordz). It means "attempt", like many of the other versions of "try"

Thank you all! :)

And several languages have just borrowed the English version.

Finnish and Maltese are both "try".

Ensaio in Portugal... In Brazil nobody uses it... It is just "try", no translation.

Nice work but a correction needed.

Latvia = piezemējumu (not sure about the grammar here though, this might be inflected version of the word for try)
Lithuania = žeminimą

Another for you

Turkey = geçiş ( although I suppose "try" is used also )

I don't speak armenian but can read

"ո" is pronunced "vo" only at beginning of word, eg vo-ski = gold
otherwise it's "o"

Hence, Փ-ո-ր-ձ is simply p-o-r-dz (english p, not french)

According to google translator it means "transition", so not far from the meaning of "try"

Last update. Made a little research about italian "meta": it should go back just to 1934 and it was probably chosen due to the fascist regime's decision to purge the language by foreign words like "try" and "essai"
Oh, yes, in the map lithuanian and latvian terms are switched, I know...

Netherlands is 23rd in the world rankings??? They have lost to Belgium and Portugal, and haven't played Hong Kong, Germany, Brazil, Chile, South Korea or Kenya.

Yes, but you get ranking points by beating teams below you too (if they aren't too far below), that's just how it works. The Netherlands has been winning far more than losing in the last couple of years.
