We're well into March so it's time to take a look back at the best of the previous month's action in the Super 14 with another great compilation from the guys at the Aussie show, The Rugby Club. Tries, hits, and pom-poms are the order of the day.
The tournament started off with some high scoring madness that had the people up north questioning if they were watching rugby or basketball, but things soon regained respectability as it became clear that he interpretations of the law led to a far more open form of the game.
As always in the Super 14, theres plenty to talk about. If its not power failures and dancing girls, its the action on field with some cracking hits and incredible tries.
A few of the bigger hits have already been featured on here, but the hit of the month was handed to Blues number eight Peter Saili, who rocked Reds winger Digby Ioane.
Try of the month was given to the on form Quade Cooper for his finish against the Crusaders after a brilliant build up. Theres already talk about him pushing Matt Giteau for a place in the Wallabies line up. Time, and court hearings, will tell.
The celebrations featured will have the old school traditionalists pulling their hair out, condemning this great game as having gone to the dogs. In reality, its just a bit of fun and can only help towards growing the profile of the sport. Rugby needs characters after all.
Enjoy this alternative look at the most entertaining bits of action from the Super 14 in February.
