Rugby Club Plays of the Week Round 13 & 14

Rugby Club Plays of the Week Round 13 & 14

The mood has been quite sombre over the last day or so here, as you will have noticed with the previous post. We do need to keep on keeping on however, so to lighten the mood, here's two weeks worth of Super Rugby Plays of the Week.

Obviously this weekend there's been a fair share of semi finals and finals rugby taking place around Europe. Before we get to those, lets take a look back for a bit of a laugh.

In round 13 a lot of the chat in Australia was about the brutally honest approach by Brumbies coach Tony Rea in their post match press conference following a loss to the Lions. For a team that at one stage were one of the most successful in the tournament, it was a massive upset.

Rea is leaving anyway, being replaced by former Springbok coach Jake White, so I guess he felt now was the time to throw some people under the bus, himself included. He pulled no punches, and gave an interview that is rarely seen in professional rugby these days.

Elsewhere there was actually some really good form, on the field, with some wonderful tries scored and a whole heap of big tackles. In this video we've got rounds 13 and 14 combined, with the latter being somewhat of a Plays classic. Great work Mr Maloney.

Keep a lookout in particular for the try scored by the Cheetahs against the Rebels, with wing Ryno Benjamin flicking a ball back inside miraculously, then Corne Uys somehow dotting down while in airborne. Also see if you can spot Super Rugby's planking debut. Enjoy.

Haha! "These guys have to go! You, you and you.. Beat it!"
Maybe Adi Jacobs has a future there (as we've seen he's kind of useless in the pitch)

Never fails to entretain. Now the Cheetahs are on a high, the Reds too, the Brumbies are down... who said Super Rugby hasn't got variety?

And jeez what the heck the Rebels defence. Been looking like pussies for a long time now...

Crazy Cheetahs try.

And Kieran Read was aiming for Dickenson there. Or at least not pulling out of the collision.

Ryno Benjamin... I seem to remember George Smith doing something similar for the aussies a few years back, RB's looked almost rehearsed, inredible skill. Jantjes' inside ball was unreadable too, Who says bok bash is the only play style down there!!

Kieran Read, "well bru, ya gonna stand there, you get hit!" (revenge for all the times he has been called offside by a ref)

This has nothing to do with the post but I watched the magners league final today and can't express how proud I am of rugby.

Leinster had no hope of winning at the end of the match but did everything possible to score. This after winning the biggest prize they possibly could the month before.

Fantastic! Too often we take the spirit and ethos of rugby for granted. Congratulations to Saracens and munster today but congratulations to Leinster for reminding me why I love this game and it is my faith.

And yes, I am drunk.

Is that bearded guy a hirsute Carlos Tevez? Certainly looks like him in that picture.
