Test match rugby was great for the teams down south this past weekend. For the north, not so much, but it was entertaining nonetheless and whether it was fatigue, injuries, or simply went according to the world rankings, it provided some great content for the Australian Rugby Clubs Plays of the Week.
The New Zealand Maori played the New Zealand Barbarians in a centenary celebration game with some top quality tries, which you can view here .
The Maori side play Ireland this Friday, and to go with their fancy new jersey have a new looking wardance which, along with Ali-Williams-esque sound effects, is sure to have the opposition quaking in their boots.
Australia beat England, New Zealand thrashed a 14 man Ireland, and South Africa walloped France as the south scored tries aplenty, once again proving that these June fixtures are often quite questionable. Then again, should the same be said about the November internationals ? Its a debate that rages on and only seems to be settled at the World Cup.
Scotland did fly the flag for the north though, beating Argentina in Tucuman.
As always, take the video with a pinch of Australian salt as once again we see that anything with Quade Cooper involved generally gets the best try award.
Whether your side is winning or losing, its a great time to be a rugby fan as coverage couldnt get better, theres plenty to talk about, and you can see it all right here on Rugbydump.
