As the great Bill McLaren would have said: "Champagne rugby" advertisements! Bravo Guinness.

Great show of skills - great to see that kind of enterprise coming from the Rugby hotbed of Arkansas in middle 'Merica.

It's America - there's a market for anything absurd.

One of THE BEST rugby vids posted on RD for a while! The electricity of the crowd and the nervous excitement of Ferris were all too apparent. Nevermind the brilliant driving tackle...

While I've always supported proper rucking, in its current incarnation and past forms, both of the above acts were dangerous and could have seriously injured the receiving players. It does not take much to break ribs, or damage internal organs - especially not when a 130kg prop is putting the hoof down.

Incredible video. One of the true legends of sport - not just rugby.

The strapping on So'oialo's hands certainly did assist in his handling during the game as seen in this clip. It's truly shameful that he wasn't punished for his reach-around on Strauss.

Have to say that although Haskell may not have intended injury his actions were dangerous and could have seriously injured his opposing player. What he did was not tackle the man, but rather hit him straight in the head. I think a penalty and a yellow were even warranted. Before you critics start to say I prefer soft rugby, I disagree entirely. I love hard-nosed and extremely physical rugby, but as someone who has received countless headshots like the one delivered on Hargreaves I would like to see them eliminated from the game.

Stirlo, you legend. Such an awesome all around player. Has to go down as one of the best centres in the modern era. Physical, fast, hard, fearless, and always played with heart.
A great example of a classy, but courageous competitor!

Dan would have to be my starting 10. Although Jonny Wilkinson is close behind. Carter offers more in attack and is just so rugby-smart, while Wilko offers great rib ticklers and solid all-around play. Both are truly LEGENDS of the game.
