Incredible backflip pass by Nathan Friend leads to great Rugby League Try

I am not from a place in the world where Rugby League is played but I was in Australia last year and I was very surprised by how the two codes are received.

Every NRL match is an event, like the NFL in the USA. At my first (and only) NRL match the atmosphere was more similar to an NFL game or even NASCAR compared to Union games. It really is a different sporting culture. I hope young men in Australia continue with Union but I was shocked at the difference and disparity between the codes.

NRL has better athletes, sorry.

All Blacks beat determined Samoa in historic first ever Test in Apia

1) The All Blacks don't make money by playing in Samoa. Look at that stadium. They'd rather go to the USA and get a fat paycheck.
2) The All Blacks know that Samoa can upset them in the right conditions.

The contributions Polynesian athletes have made to world sport despite their small population and lack of material resources is really remarkable. Samoa has 190,000 people. That's less than the population of Aberdeen, Scotland.

Former All Black Jerry Collins tragically killed in car crash

Horrible story. Jerry Collins was a great player and always showed a wonderful attitude.

Does anyone else remember him turning up for some obscure English amateur club's 2nd side then wearing that team's socks when he played for the Barbarians? He understood what rugby was supposed to be about.

Laurie Weeks sent off and banned for multiple punches on Jannie du Plessis

Imagine just for a second that the referee let both these players keep playing. What would be so wrong with that?

Friday Funnies - Henry Seniloli's premature showboating costs Treviso a try

I agree it's a punk move. How about a verbal warning from the referee and get on with the game?

Just because you cite players it doesn't mean that undesirable behavior will go away. Look at the mess with tackles and inconsistent citing commissions.

In rugby there is going to be some off the ball bs. Maybe we should kick players off the field for only really egregious and dangerous play?

Friday Funnies - Henry Seniloli's premature showboating costs Treviso a try

Cited for what, being a jerk? Not cool but that doesn't equal a citing.

You can't red card your way into a game that is 100% clean and only played with smiling faces and good attitudes.

Fijian powerhouse winger Taqele Naiyaravoro signed by Glasgow Warriors

He's bad as hell.

It seems like there are a lot of Fijians that don't relish playing for their home country. It's a shame.

Ugly.
I don't understand these citing commissions at all.

You sure are getting a lot of mileage on that one.

Manu Tuilagi admits to assaulting police officers, won't be part of Rugby World Cup

Any time you see a guy that has a) a rat tail or b) jheri curl you should keep them at arm's length because they are capable of very bad decisions.

After I heard about this guy jumping off the ferry I knew he was a moron of the highest order.
