Bumps and bruises from Round 10

Bumps and bruises from Round 10

It was physical as ever in round 10 of the Super 14. We've picked out two examples from the weekends action, one involving some wayward acrobatics from Keegan Daniel and the other a brutal clash of heads between Chief Dwayne Sweeney and Crusaders center, Casey Laulala.

The competition is coming down to it's final few rounds before the semi finals, in which only the top 4 teams advance. This means we're in for another few weeks of high intensity rugby that should bring us a few other physical moments to share with the Rugbydump crowd.

Also on next weekend, the Heineken Cup enters its semi final stage which promises to be an all-action affair.

WTF? I mean come on...you can NOT tell me that tackle was in very bad taste.Maybe not intentional but the bomoboclat just ran into that kid like an angry victim of child abuse....dude needs to learn to tackle (low and effective moreso) not just ram people like it's American Football.
