The Rugby Club Plays of the Week - Using your head, with Bakkies

The Rugby Club Plays of the Week - Using your head, with Bakkies

They say in rugby theres a position for everyone. In general you need to be strong, agile, and be mobile. Theres another part of it though, and that is the element many say is the most important the top three inches. Thats right; you need to use your head.

There was one guy who clearly didnt use his head last weekend. Or did he? It depends what youre referring to of course, so the guys at Fox Sports have put together this edition of Plays of the Week that shows us all about using your head.

The Springboks lost to the All Blacks in Auckland last week in a match that saw the Tri Nations champs being totally outmuscled, outplayed, and of course, outthought.

As we know, Bakkies Botha used his head early on as he nutted Jimmy Cowan off the ball. Hes picked up the nine week suspension for his sins, leaving opposite number Brad Thorn feeling a little lonely.

"I'll miss Bakkies," Thorn said. "It's funny to see yourself running around in a green jersey. It's like looking in the mirror all the time," added the man who looks, plays, and thinks like Bakkies.

On the vuvuzela front, many of you will be pleased to see that its been banned at most rugby grounds around the world, including Soccer City for the test between the Boks and All Blacks in August. Thats using your head, SARU.

Lookers, Burgers, headbutts, and PIPIP, this edition has it all. Enjoy the weekend.
