Friday Funnies - Stirling Mortlock low blow

Friday Funnies - Stirling Mortlock low blow

It's not good to laugh at this type of thing, so I'll leave that up to you. But a few years back, in the 2004 Tri Nations, when Jaco van der Westhuizen put through a well placed, low, stabbing kick against the Wallabies, Stirling Mortlock found it anything but funny.

Taking it square in the wedding tackle, Mortlock was seeing stars for a good few minutes before recovering and continuing with the game.

Not too long ago we saw a charge down with the head by Corey Jane . I wouldn't want to begin to describe what kind of charge down this is.

Lets just say Mortlock was temporarily a contributor to this odd shaped balls website, in more ways than one.

Blake, I'd say you should check your Proxy settings. If you're viewing it from your office there's a high chance that dailymotion videos are blocked for whatever reason. Try from home if possible - they should work no probs.

Ok, I'll check it out from home. I also just updated my flash to the latest version but I doubt that has anything to do w/ it. Back to the videos at hand, keep up the hard work boys, the site gets better by the day!

Jaco van der Westhuyzen manages to smack the next guy in the head who is Matt Giteau,youy can tell because of the colour of his headgear.Gordon Bray''It's bad enough when you're hit there with a cricket ball and wearing a protector,but there was no protection for Stirling Mortlock and this piece of leather is about SIX TIMES BIGGER!!'' ''Sack or spuds,straight down!'' Funny.
