very nice, however the last one has a forward pass in it... bad linesman...

I think it's Gavin Henson... in that pickup from midair, didn't he deliberately knock it forwards before catching it?

Rawling, it was Henson, and no, it wasn't a knock on. It's only a knock on if it goes to ground or touches another player before he catches it again.

nicethe Henson play was something else, he should have finished it off and that'd have been a classic

Great vid ! There's been some great rugby played in this years cup too bad its going to be one of the weakest quarter-final line ups ever. No offence to Saracens, London Irish and the like but the seeding system this year was a farce ! Leicster, Leinster and Toulose in one group and Clermont, Wasps and Munster in another ? Ridiculous

All great try's was amazed to see Sackey with the hand off and good pass....personally i have never reaaally rated him. but he is starting to show more potential...didnt see the game so it could have been a one off, would like to think it wasnt though!

watchin the Henson take again and again, and imagining the perfect world, perfect tackle (whilst in the comfort of my home, and not playing that particular game) the opposition wing (11) could have had such a huge hit on henson there had he only had he not gone backwards to take the ball.....but yeh like i said in a perfect world lol!

rugby dump admin it's not that simple, if the rule is like yoo say, you could throw the ball with your hand over a player and catch it without touching the ground or the player...but this time is not a knock on

"Rawling, it was Henson, and no, it wasn't a knock on. It's only a knock on if it goes to ground or touches another player before he catches it again."But the rules say knock forwards deliberately, not knock on... hehe.

Shame the Edinburgh Leicester game isn't on here as the second try Edinburgh scored was a peach. Full length of the pitch, with an excellent finish by Ross Ford.

No they don't use the ELVs, Super 14 will be first competition to try them out

I agree some great rugby on show there.I do however take offence to guy saying how saracens don't deserve a place in quarter final, making the line-up 'weak'. sarries are 4th in the premiership, having beaten the likes of wasps and leicester etc. We have just gone out and beaten one of france's and europe's premier sides biarritz by more than any other team in the HC's history.No doubt the seeding was ridiculous and sarries had an easier pool. but its utter bull to say we dont deserve a spot. we have both domestic and european form and we will be a stern challenge to whoever we meet.sorry. rant over. great vid!

Yeah i agree, poor seedings for the groups but Saracens have done really well and deserve their place in the quarters, i would like to see Glasgow get through but that doesnt look likely. I have to say i was impressed with how Saracens beat Biarritz, i don't think i've ever cheered on an english side before but i was in that game because i hate Biarritz so much. Terrible side to watch.

It's a tough choice between the Leinster try or the Biarritz one. I'm tempted to give it to Leinster for two behind the back passes from two all stars.Very impressed with Gavin Henson, glad to see him not suffering from too much spray on tan or leg razor burn, or any other silly ailments he conjures up when it comes time to play. Also, look at how tiny shane williams is in relation to the ball! It's almost as big as he is!

The Shane Williams try was a great display of foot and pace by that mezzofanuccio Gavin Henson.The best overall try was the Luke Fitzgerald try. Two extremely difficult passes by the Leinster #13 and by Contempomi. Also great credit to Contempomi and Fitzy for being in the right place to accept such difficult passes.

Gavin Henson looks like a lot less like a douchebag recently, good for him.
