After a crazy week for the Rugbydump crew, things have resumed normality (as normal as it gets), and the Friday Funnies are back for this week with this funny incident during the EDF Enery Cup Semi Final in Cardiff last weekend.
The Ospreys team in Wales are blessed with two very fine scrum halfs. One, an up and coming, no nonsense, physical and extremely large number nine. And the other, an All Black legend.
The rivalry between Welsh international Mike Phillips and former All Black Justin Marshall is there for all to see. In last years EDF Cup Semi, Phillips was still at the Cardiff Blues when Marshall totally outplayed him, which ignited the rivalry ahead of Phillips' switch to the Ospreys.
They're now teamates and have to fight for the starting berth each week. We couldn't resist posting this little clip of Marshall getting whacked in the head from Phillips' pass while on was on as a blood replacement for Lee Byrne.
Tongue in cheek, I think we know who won that battle.
