Rugby Club Plays of the Week & Benn Robinson's FlashTahs

Rugby Club Plays of the Week & Benn Robinson's FlashTahs

Last week we saw the Super Rugby Plays of the Season from the Rugby Club, but that's not where it ends as the international season, as well as domestic comps, are upon us. Here's a look at a big hit, as well as some tackles from Samoa.

If you haven't caught up on the Wallaby vs Samoa match yet, make sure you watch the highlights as it was great upset win for the visitors. They also smashed the home side all over the park, with big Alesana Tuilagi in particular making some fantastic big hits .

In this edition of the Rugby Club Plays of the Week - which aired before this past weekend's Wallaby win over South Africa - the big Samoans feature strongly, as does another big man, Waratah's front rower Benn Robinson.

A few years back Carlton Draught, who sponsor the Waratahs, came up with a classic TV ad in Australia that was a take-off of the famous Flash Dance scene. It was hilarious, and you can view it here . The HSBC Waratahs, while making their documentary The Code, had a go at it, and the result is pure genius.

Prop Robinson is the star, with Luke Burgess, Drew Mitchell, Daniel Halangahu, and Ben Mowen all watching on. It was posted on the Rugbydump Twitter and Facebook pages when it first came out, but if you missed that, it's included below after the Plays of the Week video.

Enough talk, busy week ahead. Enjoy the Plays, and the gyrating hips of Mr Robinson.

I'm guessing pirouetting was the real cause for Robinson's torn ACL.

These unknown Samoans causing trouble? Mapusua has been one of the top players in the English premiership for a few years and Tuilagi averages one try every three games for Leicester Tigers over the past five years. Good for you Samoa!
