Sky New Zealand Fans Try of the Year 2014

It was a good'un. Crushing for your boys I'm sure. Like the French and their bloody "Try from the end of the world" against us. Sometimes you have to suck it up and acknowledge the work. The conversion retake did seem unnecessarily cruel, mind.

Bryan Habana issues apology for taking a dive in Heineken Cup Final

Now I would hate to see diving become a regular part of the game but there is a fair bit of hypocrisy amongst these posts.

Deysel is obstructed + Deysel stomps on face in revenge = Deysel is victim and you all understand his frustration.

Habana is obstructed + Habana dives to ensure penalty is awarded = Habana is perpertrator of evil, must be PUNISHED etc etc.

Would you all be happier if Habana had stopped and lamped Farrel in the face?

Francisco Chaparro red carded and banned for 10 weeks for tip tackle

Pretty fucking stupid and deserving of a ban. I just wish there was consistency in punishment. Bradley Davies vs Ireland was far worse for a lesser ban. Tuqiri on McCaw was far far worse for a lesser ban. And of course Mealamu & Umaga had no case to answer.

Beauden Barrett wins IRPA Try of the Year 2013 for try against France

The test is to sprint and casually lob the ball back over your head. You will have passed the ball backward and the ball will have landed behind. Yet relative to the field it will have travelled forward.

Better yet, play cricket on the Eurostar going at 300 km/h. Bowl back down the aisle and you will be faster than Mitchell Johnson - in the opposite direction.

Sebastien Chabal knocks out Marc Giraud with big right hook

And if this was an All Black hooker twatting a Welsh lock for running obstruction, then i'm fairly certain there would 200 screaming comments.

Not that I'm condoning said hooker or Chabal.

England get the better of Australia with strong second half at Twickenham

For those who want to start Hartley in the next match, watch for his sneaky swinging arm at 66-67 minutes. He might be a good player but he is perpetually 30 seconds from his next yellow/red card.

Bismarck Du Plessis controversially yellow carded for huge hit on Dan Carter

That post is entirely too rational. Bull spraying and righteous indignation are a lot more fun.

The All Blacks crush the Wallabies in Bledisloe One in Sydney

Actually, he was asked if he thought he would get a hostile reception after kneeing McCaw in the face. He replied that the crowd should "bring it on" and that he loved it. So the crowd brought it and he didn't love it, and he played like gack. So they brought it some more and he got even worse. He has become a figure of ridicule because there is such a massive deficit between his self-image and his actual level of performance when the heat is on.

I personally wish they would stop booing because its childish in the extreme and fundamentally crap behaviour that demeans the boo-ers. It's also painful to watch Cooper shamble ineffectually through another big game with that haunted face.

It has gotten to the point where its like clubbing a baby seal.
