The Rugby Club Plays of the Week - RWC Pool stages

At this stage in the tournament it's safe to say that for many of you, the Rugby World Cup experience is well and truly over. You've either left your side their to do battle without you, or you're wallowing in self pity, wondering what could have been. Either way, the fans at the tourament have been fantastic, as we can see on this edition of Plays of the Week.

The man with the plan Sean Maloney has a special guest join him this week, and like a good Australian, she's all about the best tries from the Wallabies. We get to see three classics from the tournament so far.

There's a bit of a mention for Heinrich Brussow's face clutching effort after Paul Williams decked him in the Samoa game. Red card, but plenty of debate about that one. View the full incident here.

The Tonga upset of France was also a massive moment of the tournament, and as this edition of Plays features some of the best stuff from the pool rounds, we get another look at that.

Hits, collisions, and some crazy fans are also included. Check out the related links below the video to view some of the incidents in full, and below those you can click on the Rugby Club Plays of the Week category link if you fancy viewing a few more episodes of Plays. Enjoy.

Forgot about the Ghiraldini incident. Just checked, and looks like he's been suspended for 15 weeks. And that's after it was reduced due to his good record. Well...that sucks for him.

still a bit of aussie bitterness about losing to the irish creeping in there with the comment ''he'll be home next week'' at 2 min in the video...haha regardless of the fact he probably is home now still the bitterness comes across

Nice one. Liked the touch of getting his daughter to judge - nearly "got a bit of sun cream in my eyes" at that point.

The Ozzie try at 1:10 - selfless generosity by Quade Cooper there. Literally home and dry and passes it inside for his mate to score. I quite like that. Especially when you consider the abuse this bloke gets from the single brain-celled contingent of the Kiwi crowds. And by the way, I do wish those knobheads would just piss off and find a sport more suited to them.

Oh yeah, and this:
"Heinrich, take off the headgear and wear a tiara next time!".

Spot on.

I know I'll attract hate for this, but......

The music is terrible and the smug geezer talking, jaysus...

And that's not anti-aussie, I want them to break kiwi hearts again. But really, plays of the week is so annoying and smug.
