Boys the suspense waiting for the post-RWC edition is killing me ! Any ETA ? Keep up the good work, the shows so far have just been utterly brilliant .

Romana Graham, his Dad, and a spectator fight it out in 2009

That. was. utterly. batshit mental ! Ridiculous scenes! 4 weeks seems incredibly lenient for a genuinely vicious punch-up involving non-players.

Richie Gray ruins Stephen Donald debut with match winning try

Haha, well it seems that we have all been a victim of the timing of posts ! My apologies iamj8 ... AND for my answer re offside having been answered about 6 times by the time I had written it ...

Richie Gray ruins Stephen Donald debut with match winning try

Well iamaj8 I know what you're getting at (moaning about decisions can be boring), however reffing and the rules etc are a rather important part of rugby, and do lend themselves to discussion on a site like this to be fair!

However, in this case, doesn't the fact that the kick hits a Bath player render anyone in front of the kick onside as play enters a new phase as it were. In that case there is nothing wrong with the refereeing decision. Correct me if I'm wrong!

Huge amateur hit from club rugby in Buenos Aires, Argentina

UN-believable hit. I dream of being in a situation with such a perfect set up like that. The victim utterly unaware of the guy closing in on him and receiving the ball at the exact right moment. So yes of course the tackler's tekkers are outstanding... but he was certainly fortunate in the perfect storm that was that situation. Be honest - he was already committed to the savage attack from about 15 metres away!

Also I agree with the tournament name. How utterly undescriptive and unimaginative. The World Cup is already really the Rugby Championship. Quad Nations for me. Or something along the lines of The Southern Hemisphere Cup/Championship/Tournament/ etc.

Radike Samo's IRPA Try of the Year 2011, vs New Zealand

Clearly, a great try. But yes probably another example in sport of when awards go to the situation and who was involved in the event, rather than the actual specific merits of the act itself.
By the way RD, I was denied a unique double first of being the 'first' comment on this vid with my first ever comment after joining this site if only my activation email had come in time lol ! D'oh!
It's OK though, I'm pleased to be up and running at all.

Nick Abendanon's Tuilagi brothers nightmare at the Rec

What a vid! Watched it full screen so didn't watch time bar... every time it faded black it faded back in again! I'm thinking, surely not another one! He just had one of those unlucky games, but was so magnificently brave to just keep on getting up for more.
