It's time to catchup on some Plays of the Week from the Rugby Club in Australia, this time from rounds 15 and 16 of Super Rugby. There's big hits, great tries, dancing girls, and even a bit of a bromance.
By now I'm sure you're familiar with what's served up from the guys at the Rugby Club, Sean Maloney in particular. It's good stuff, and basically sums up a weekend of Super Rugby in a few minutes, in a way that can only be described as, well, Australian.
The good news is that the all Aussie bias has dissipated slightly, with a more rounded view on the best bits lately. That said, it is an Australian show, meant for an Australia audience only, so it's all in good fun and as long as nobody losing an eye, we can't really complain.
A special mention goes out to Tana Umaga for his great try (aged 67) against the Blues, and gasman David Smith of the Force, who flew in against a rather minty looking Highlanders side. The Stormers were also on fire in Round 16 with some great tries, and see if you can spot Pat O'Connor's headbutt against the Bulls. See it? Yeah, thought not.
Have a good weekend, and if you're feeling bromantic, just go with it.
