Rugby HQ Plays of the Month from April 2014

Rugby HQ's Plays of the Month are back with another excellent segment that wraps up the good, the bad and the ugly from Super Rugby in the month of April. This one features some outstanding tries in particular, as well as a few highly comical moments.

The big hits are there in abundance too, and switching away from Super Rugby for a bit, there's a very quick look at that much spoken about incident in the American Samoa 7's tournament..

You can view February and March in the Related Posts below, and all other Shortball and previous Plays of the Week clips, dating back a few years, in the Plays of the Week category archive

Putting cheerleaders in front / during / after a game of rugby is like all those irritating flashing advertisement boards alongside of the pitch. No place in rugby for that IMO and made for retarded people.

Hmm, difficult to reply to this in defence of the cheerleaders without inadvertently categorising oneself as a retarded person, so well played on the phrasing of your comment.

Bit ambivalent about them to be honest. I'm with you in as much as I do not like cheesy American shit and I despise all this artificial "atmosphere creation" - like for example playing music at trytime, when all you really want to hear is the roar of the crowd itself (or polite ripple of applause).

However, I do enjoy a good perv at some half-naked slags. Especially if they've got their feet by their heads.

Can you imagine if they had these cheerleaders in NH rugby? The poor girls would die of exposure.

Thank god that phenomena is for the major part not present in the NH. That's the last thing we need. Some more pollution. Honestly I don't see the point of having some chicks there to psyche a rugby game up. It's all distraction.

@stroudos. That's right, there is nothing more goose bumps giving than a natural reaction of a crowd and not some cheesy Chase & Status, Netsky or wathever sample being played trough bad speakers.

I don't know whether to be impressed that you know the names of the cretins that produce that music or not.

Well one can't forget names that are unwillingly being pumped on all fronts in ones mind on daily basis, right?
