The Rugby Club Plays of the Week - Bam Bam!

The Rugby Club Plays of the Week - Bam Bam!

The Fox Sports Plays of the Week today focus on two things in particular. First up, its the discarded Drew Mitchell and the great try he scored this past weekend. The focus then turns to the Tri Nations, and a preview ahead of the big match in a few days time.

The Mitchell issue is an interesting one as he was written off by the Rugby Club pundits last week after some poor Wallaby performances. He then showed them up by scoring a fantastic solo try for Randwick against Sydney University in the Shute Shield.

Today though, he was surprisingly axed from the Wallaby squad for the Tri Nations, along with fellow winger Lachie Turner. Coach Robbie Deans has said that he wants to look at a few players and how they perform in club rugby.

Mitchell will naturally want to continue with his try scoring feats if he wants to join his mates in one of the toughest competitions on the planet. The Tri Nations kicks off this weekend as holders South Africa take on the All Blacks in Auckland.

The Rugby Club looks back at some of the finer moments from last year and then profiles a few players that need to be watched in the 2010 edition. Namely Pierre Spies for the Boks, Maa Nonu for the ABs, and David Pocock for the Wallabies.
