Midweek Madness - The Top 5 Bombed Tries of All Time

It's the middle of the week so traditionally a time for some kind of crazy posting here on RD, and this one fits the bill as Rugby HQ have provided ten of the funniest and most unfortunate missed try bloopers of all time. We've got the Top 5, and then five more.

The guys at Fox Sports have scoured the archives, and the web, and put together a brilliant collection of some of the most cringeworthy howlers in recent times.

We've got a lot of them archived and featured here on RD too, but given the Sean Maloney touch, these are hilarious to watch once again, and definitely if it's your first time.

You can watch some of the incidents in full in the Related Posts, and we've also added a few extras you might enjoy. Clangers from Sam Vesty, Robbie Fleck, a hilarious league clip, and a classic old video of former England Sevens star Isoa Damudamu are all worth watching.

The other five that didn't quite make the Rugby HQ Top 5 have also been included on page two, featuring some greats, namely Tana Umaga and Christian Cullen, being a bit too casual.

Remember that you can click 'View All' below the video to see everything on one page, and we have also now added the Top 5's as a category on here, so it should be easier to browse all of the previous (and future) segments at your leisure - rugbydump.com/top5

In Australia you can watch The Top Five live on Thursday nights from 8.30pm on Fox Sports 1

None are as bad as this one by Christophe Dominici! I remember watching the game and Brian Moore saying 'In this part of the world, we call someone doing that an egit!'

Thanks for this link! I remembered this one, but I was never able to find out which game it was nor to find a video of this.
There is no replay on the video though, and it's not really clear, but he actually hit the ball with his knee while trying to ground it.

They didn't get Breyton Paulse for Western Province breaking away and running about 80m clear and getting tackled just before the line as he slowed down by Deon Keiser of Natal Sharks. I think it was is maybe 2001/2/3 Currie Cup. Ultimate never give up defence!!

Brett, are you not meaning Robbie Fleck? It's listed in the Related Posts above. This one? Deon Kayser chases down Robbie Fleck

Love the Will Carling one. Especially when the 9 comes running in for a big smash and the opposition player hardly moves.

The best I have seen is the Isoa Damudamu showboat cock-up in a sevens game - I think there's a link on here somewhere - faffs about touching ball down and Welsh player kicks it out of his hand!

Carling looked so undignified as he was being swung like a naughty child being admonished by a parent
