Hilarious George Gregan on field ballet in 2001

Hilarious George Gregan on field ballet

George Gregan is one of the most respected and praised players in world rugby, and perhaps the most consistent scrumhalf of his generation, but he looks like an a bit of a fool here.

This will certainly appeal to those who cannot stand George. At Rugbydump we respect the man for some of his past achievements , but do always find it amusing that he tries to keep a straight face when something silly like this happens.

He's a legend of the game, but this was hilarious.

i hate gregan personally, he is over rated due to one saving tackle that was more luck than skill, he doesnt have good form in his tackling at any time and he doesnt have spectacular passing, i'm glad he fell on his ass haha

Gregan's tackling deserves praise regardless. Even if not on-form, the guy had the sack to tackle many a player over his weight.Yes he is a douchebag at any put-in of the ball, but I'd take him on my team over almost any of his contemporaries. Name a scrumhalf from 1997-2006 who had a better string of say, 6-8 years...Granted, there have been some special guys out there (like Justin Marshall and Fabien Galthie), but neither delivered an RWC.

name a better scrum half that has played while he has been around. he isn't overated because of one tackle he is highly rated because he has delivered consistent performances for a decade. what a machine

Thats "FOUR more years" there brother.As a Saffa, I hate him, but as a Rugby fan, I think he is a sensational player. Whoever said the USA scrummmie is better should be shot.I feel sorry for the sonofabitch as well, they handed the captaincy to someone else while he was still captain, poor form Connoly

He may look like a dick on the pitch, but he is not overated. Never mind that tackle, what he does and how he positions his forwards in defense is amazing, best in the world at that. As soon as he goes off australia struggle at the break down. in attack he's not bad either.

yeh mate im pretty sure that he got a shoulder from the opposition that caused him to be knocked over. he wasnt trying to kick the ball because when you try to kick a ball it usually leaves your hands

The south african during the RWC 99 was definately better then greegan.. cant really remember his name or spell it for that matter.. smtg like van der westhuizen or smtg like that. that guy really rocked

It seems pretty clear to me that he wasn't trying to kick the ball, but trying to get the other side marched back 10 more meters by 'diving' because of the tiny shoulder the guy walked into him with. Pretty stupid and was never going to work, but he'll do anything to win and this video just proves it.

Look, Gregan is not over rated. And who says his tackling isnt good? judging from his size and weight, he could tackle a big man like lomu which other FOWARD PACK(so much bigger then little gregan) cant. He stopped Lomu's attack. therefore, lomu never scores in games against the boks before.

i personally supports The All Blacks. But u have to be fair too. Not just because u support other team. u tend to look down on their players. Come'on, after all, Gregan is known as 1 of the best scrum - half or mayb even the best in the world and he has proven that.

His tackling is so good he stoped Lomu from scoring against a team he doesn't even play for.

i cant believe someone can name a top ten scrum halves and not include ricky januarie of south africa, even tho he scpred against wales and i hate him for it :P i think he is such a smart player definately wouldnt mind having him in my team!AND on the topic of the video he takes a slight nudge from the players walking back and makes the most of it, nothing new on a footy field, and i guess its the job of the scrum half to be the cheeky one and try something on
