Super Rugby 2013 Plays of the Week - Round 1 and 2

After a bit of a break, Plays of the Week is back courtesy of Fox Sports and their new rugby show, RugbyHQ. Each week we'll bring you this popular segment as they pick out the best, worst, biggest, funniest and strangest Super Rugby has to offer.

It's not only Super Rugby though, as you can see in week one, where clips from the Premiership and Sevens rugby are included. The majority of the time it's southern hemisphere based though, and bear in mind that it's an Australian show, so expect a slight slant towards them occasionally.

Christian Wade and Danny Care make an appearance, as does the skydiver that arrived on time, but disturbed extra time in an incredible third place playoff game at the Vegas Sevens. Fiji and Samoa were all square at 31-31 when he arrived, delivering the match ball for the final..

Round One of Super Rugby had only two matches taking place, but last weekend in Round Two we saw some unbelievable bits of play, including the widely lauded tries scored by Tim Nanai Williams in the Highlanders vs Chiefs game.

There's also the usual best tries, hits and dancing. There's always got to be some dancing.

Two episodes are included in the playlist below, so hit play once and enjoy. Well have more from RugbyHQ soon. If you're in Australia, you can watch the full show on Fox Sports on Thursday nights.

That makes two of us then. I'll go a stage further and say I just don't find it the same when that incredibly fit South African cheerleader doesn't make an appearance - can't remember what team but she's often on Plays wiggling a quite exceptional arse right in front of the camera.

To be fair, the parachutist did not drop early. The previous game went into overtime. Nobody updated the pilot or the parachutist.
