Jonny Wilkinson absolutely smashed by huge Opeti Fonua

something every big boy dreams of -- to smash a flyhalf, and to smash a marquee guy like a Wilko. But glad to see Agen know the difference between a good hit and something that might actually hurt-hurt a member of our brotherhood.

Full credit to Jonny who still at his age and level still steps up to the physical part of the game -- at this stage of his career, many "emeritus" backs end up being human turnstiles (or always were, like Ronan O'Gara). But Wilko still stands and delivers as best he can.

The Top Five Best 'Fatman' Tries of all time

Fifteen test tries from Uncle Fester -- the most by any hooker at that time.

In terms of the videos above -- maybe his one against the USA in 1999 is the only highlight worthy try. But as an overall body of work -- a legend.

British & Irish Lions squad announcement - Sam Warburton named as captain

Agree. The problem with getting Wade to shine is to give him a chance, and a good setup man.

Imagine if as a defender, you have to choose to tackle Tuilagi or Wade? Might as well go home.

#6 to Ewen MacKenzie was a total homer call. The rest of the tries quite impressive.

Fetu'u Vainikolo try from no look pass against Treviso

That scrummie was giving directions to the hospital, until Vanikolo gave the cab driver alternate instructions.

Tim Nanai-Williams great try saving tackle on Cobus Reinach

People have been hitting rucks like Napoleon Dynamite did for years.

Seems that to get (or net get) cited for this, you need to be from a certain country, or have a certain reputation.

Amazing end-to-end passage of play results in try for Suburbs vs Grammar-Carlton

Great example of the game.

Goes to show just how deep the skill level is in places like NZ -- from the outside, it looks like some casual, weekend match under / near some power lines with guys standing on the sideline with their dog -- but up close, there is magic.

Also, good bit of sportsmanship from #17 -- realizes how both teams gave it their all, and the other team was just lucky enough to finish the play off.
