Friday Funnies - James Haskell goes into meltdown

Funny as this was, I'm calling hoax. There's a clip online of Haskell doing a Thomas Gray impression a couple of years ago (or is it the other way around?)

No on all accounts. It was just the camera angles.

Get Excited For The Rugby World Cup, Less Than Six Months To Go

There was some IRB RWC ad last year that excluded NZ. It made front page news and we all took it personally. From memory Ashley Johnson was representing SA so now it's your turn to feel shunned.

Get Excited For The Rugby World Cup, Less Than Six Months To Go

Are those actually the lyrics, if I win, lose or draw, it's a victory for all? England getting their excuses in early?

Marcelo Bosch last gasp Quarter Final penalty sinks Racing Metro

If Nigel Owens tells you 30 seconds from time to keep your feet, you had better keep your feet. Every NZer who has watched the last minute of Ireland vs NZ, 2013 twenty times has that voice etched into their memories.

Throwback Thursday - Rupeni Caucaunibuca hat-trick vs the Crusaders in 2004

Is that the same night that Spencer finished the game with an unnecessary length-of-the-field try and a sideline conversion, flipping the bird at the cantab crowd? Oh those were the golden years, or the end of them.

Waratahs lock Dave Dennis makes two brutal hits against the Rebels

I can't quote the law but I remember Dan Carter being carded for the same thing vs the Boks a few years back. If it's in the in goal area, I assume there's a better chance of disrupting a try scoring opportunity illegally, hence the card.
