Also, and sorry for the double-posting, LOVE the pumped up fattie in the background after the handoff

Dean Mumm's huge hand-off on the Sharks' Marcel Coetzee

Have to agree with stroudos. Almost as impressive as the handoff is the fact that Mumm really can move!

Rugby Club Plays of the Week 2012 - Round 4

You're talking of two different things, mate. One thing is a try celebration dance (Digby Ioane doing his "showe dance" or the Turtle and Rene Ranger making a mock version of Ioane's Turtle), which is ok. It's a simple, fair, colourfull fun. You scored a try, do a backflip, cheer with your mates, do a little jiggy, ok. Not everyone's cup of tea, but there is no harm in it, so stop being such prudes. As long as they dont exagerate, as in American Football, I can't see why not.

Another thing is tauting the other team. Tossing the ball at an opposing team's player, this nauseating hip thrust, or just going to them and rubbing it in their face, THAT should be erradicated with severe consequences.

We all love some banter, and the occasional well rehearsed (or not. Hint, hint, Mr Ranger) team coreography, but stick to the honest banter with fairplay. This isn't football (neither American or "The Real One")

O2 Inside Line - Six Nations 2012, episode 3

This seems like a new England, rebuilding, but I'm afraid there's no stoping this Wales side, appart from France on a very good day (as things are right now).

There isn't much of a weak link from 1 to 15, is it? Deadly and huge back three, incredible centre pairing, halfbacks who can turn things around, a killer bunch of loosies and a more than respectable tight five, even with the absence of davies.

England's time will come, thing seem positive for the future, but in-three-years-time future. Can't wait for the Lions


Ps - I know this is unrelated, but Im practicly about to pee in my pants with excitement. Super XV is coming! Catch the fever!

Matt Giteau steps up as Toulon score late try against Stade Francais

What is happening with Stade Francais? They have a good team on paper, seem to be able to move the ball around with class, have an imposing forward pack, but seem to fail to produce. Why? Can anyone tell me?

Still, pretty poor sportsmanship (and I say this even though I HATE Botha and his antics. He is more famous for his incidents than his quality of play. I bet if his locking partner hadnt been Matfield, he wouldnt be so well known) from Stade Francais. That bitch slap from sackey on the toulon frontrower that was trying to break the fight was just cowardice. He didnt have the guts to do that on the open, thats why he did it and then went hiding behind his teammates

Super Rugby 2012 Profiles - The Australian teams

That would take all the fun of it. The Alternate Rugby Commentarry and the Plays Of The Week are good examples of this, being so bias it's funny. A bit of non offensive banter.

Still, some pretty good views. Reds are obviously top contenders, but not much else actually happening. Waratahs have a history of breaking down mid/late in the comp and seems White bit more than he can chew and wont be able to present a decent outfit (no problem, theyll do nicely against the Kings come next year). The rest of them seem clear bottom feeders. If Reds dont take the crown again it'll surelly go to NZed. Is this the Blues' year?

Wales looking strong after solid win over Scotland

No way that was a knock on. That being said, and while I'm not up to speed on scotish rugby, what the hell are they doing? They go through games with a super narrow game (granted, they have a great forward pack, and one must play to one's strengths), run odd and predictable lines and decoys, as was shown in a huge hit by jon davies, I think, who knew where the ball was going and had more than time to have a cup of coffee before murdering the receiver, and then we have plays like that. Obviously there are some players (i.e., Laidlaw, Hogg) that have that X-factor, that can create something out of the blue. So why play such a narrow game, instead of using forwards to create difficulties in the defense and have quick ball to creative backs? Again, please fill me in, I dont know much about the scotish game. I think with their forwards, laidlaw, hogg, Visser in a not so distant future (cant wait for that) and maybe a scrummie with crisp service, a rugby brain and an atittude, scotland can become so much more...

Samoa beat New Zealand in dramatic Vegas Sevens final

Faosaliva, what a monster, having the confidence to thump a defender inside the goal area. I vaguely remember seeing someone doing that in XVs, cant remember who. Also, how about Ngera? Rockets in his boots.

I love how anything can happen in sevens. The 6th placed side winning a major tournament, minnow sides (like my Portugal) beating established powers... Everyone has a shot in 7s, you just have to want it bad enough

Incredible try from Bath prop Anthony Perenise

A little maori sidestep, didn't go anywhere but strauight... Classic! Nice to see the front row fatties putting the gas on
