New Zealand Maori All Blacks start tour well with good win over Canada

They "rebranded" last year so the Maori and Sevens (and maybe the junior, probably not the women) became All Blacks as well. I assume it was done to increase their marketing value as it all happened at the same time as the AIG sponsorship.

Quite a few of the forwards wearing blue boots too. Liam Messam recently in an interviewed mentioned that Richie gave him the death stare when he was considering putting on a pink training shirt. Only for the backs he was told. I haven't noticed if the AB forwards wear fancy boots or not

England get the better of Australia with strong second half at Twickenham

You're probably right, well, half right. Folau is just as much to blame for choosing to run the ball back instead of kicking when he knew he had no support and got penalised as a results. Although I'm sure Ashton threw that quick tap ball forward, he wasn't going forward himself so the moment excuse isn't there. Not to mention the obstruction. Sorry, I started out agreeing with you and now I'm not so sure :)

Amazing kickoff as strong winds blow ball back over the dead ball line

Boooooo! Unlike, unlike. I love this site. I don't want to trawl through thirty other sites to find footage of a kick being blown back by the wind in humourous fashion when I can find it here on RD along with several related videos.

The Nude Blacks get the better of their Australian counterparts in annual match

Some impressive foot work and kicking considering they aren't wearing boots.

Strangely enough about the line out call named Woodcock - the line out move that led to the AB try in the RWC is called "teabag" which is apparently Woody's other nickname. I don't want to imagine what he was doing to get that name

Rugby Impacts in Slow Motion with Bath Rugby

Ouch, the least they could have done was move the pads closer to him. He landed on his backside!

The Top 5 Crazy Cards of All Time - Rugby HQ

Interestingly, guess who the ref was...Monsieur Poite. I guess you shouldn't put a big hit on a #10 when he's the ref.

The Top 5 Crazy Cards of All Time - Rugby HQ

Haha, controversial of the Aussies to make that #1! The saffers will not be happy

Glad to see they weren't tempted to include the Drew Mitchell red card in there.

Manu Tuilagi apologises for 'bunny ears' prank on prime minister

Bit of harmless fun. If they only took one photo, well, maybe a bit silly but they were snapping away so why not have a laugh. Sure, if it was the Queen it might be seen as disrespectful considering she's an older lady but I would hope the prime minister could have a a laugh with the boys.

I know John Key would see the funny side of it but then he's special. Afterall, not every prime minister makes the list of top ten most awkward handshake moments

Ian Madigan low blow in painful Impact Gumshield promo video

Definitely planned. His reaction wasn't one of cheeky evil laughter but like he'd done what he was told to do. We wouldn't be watching this if he'd aimed for the face - unless there was blood
