Sneaky England trainer at halftime

Sneaky England trainer at halftime


This is a pretty funny clip. It points out how the English trainer listened in on Wallaby hooker Stephen Moore's conversation with referee Alain Rolland (not Kaplan as the analyst says in the clip) at half-time.

The trainer not only listened to what they were talking about, but made an effort to have it transmitted to the rest of the England staff, and more importantly, coach Brian Ashton.

Now, I doubt Moore and the Rolland were plotting a plan to stop Wilkinson from getting his drop goals over, or discussing tactics that could have changed the game, but it's still pretty funny to see the England trainer getting in so close and being able to eavesdrop on the conversation.

Who knows, maybe he did learn something from it and that contributed to England's dominance in the scrums? You never know. Still, pretty comical.

LOL that is funny. agree with the second guy tbh. also you cant claim this is cheating somehow seeing as every team will find out weaknesses....eg. at home, we find out local teams injuries, bad backs, dodgy shoulders, and legally use that to our advantage.

Makes a pleasant change to see England being the one to be a bit sneaky. Normally this happens to them so fair play to the physio for that and although I doubt it had much of an effect, it is something that no-one will ever find out about I am sure.Regan and then Chuter were both superb that day in what was a quite brilliant forward performance from England.

LOL. Doubt this led to their victory but you should always check to see who is around before you go running your mouth.

At least he wasnt poisoning players like the English betting syndicate did to the all blacks. Cheeky pom was probably getting a kick out of hearing the whining auzzie crying to the ref about how its not fair drop goals are allowed in finals.

Dumb fool. Sheridan was not the soul reason. It is very limit as to how much impact a prop can make in a single match, yet alone a series of matches. Sheridan was an outstanding performer in the Australia match, however failed to create anywhere near as much impact in the France and South Africa games. I personally feel that the two pivotal positions on a rugby pitch are openside flanker and fly half. I agree with the bloke up top, this world cup held the greatest entertainment value ahead of any sporting competition I have watched before. Thanks.

Great stuff!!By the way, I know that this debate could go on forever, but when it comes down to it, Tighthead Prop is the most important player on the pitch -- you only have to look at the amount the top ones get payed to see that. It follows, then, that if Big Ted is able to destroy oppo Looseheads, he is a pretty important player too. The Aussies with a sturdy scrum would have been a different kettle of fish altogether.

thats so funny, aussies always looking for an excuse, only reason they lost was coz they were dominated by a better england pack, nothing to do with people listening in to conversations. why cant they just take defeat graciously?
