"Warning* Do not watch this video. Or if you do, for the love of god skip the bit from 0:25 to 0:45.
That bit with the blokes on the couch cannot be unseen....

3:48 - Wonderful piece of flyhalf-smashing, and antidote for those who object to Courtney Lawes inconsiderately tackling people who are smaller than him.
That Burger's a very modest bloke isn't he.
I strongly believe you should always look to learn a new fact from each Rugbydump video, so delighted to discover today that you're meant to hack up a load of mucus into your mouth instead of actually saying Gio Aplon's first name.

Jesus Larry, I'm not that old!! I do qualify for vets rugby but not by much... I played a bit of rugby at school 20-25 years ago, but only really got into playing regularly in the last 10-15 years. And I do still play - infrequently and at a "sociable" level.
I agree with you that I prefer a more fluid game, but generally speaking I'm against too much tinkering with the laws. Smart teams/coaches will always find solutions to problems. Good example here where Saracens players "dummied" the ruck causing the Racing boys to go off their feet.

I don't even agree that he's transgressed enough in any of these situations to merit a penalty. Yeah, he treads a fine line in a few of them, but I think there's a clearly discernible release between tackle and jackal.
The faster you can execute both actions and get away with it consistently, the better you are at playing flanker.

Best moment of the clip has to be the dancing fan around 1:05...
After that the pass by Joseph. Love to see him and Ford playing high up and attacking the line like that.

Cheers for the reply. Didn't intend to be critical of the actual piece - it's pretty entertaining - just seemed at odds with your usual "house style"!

Good news from the WRU medical department though - looks like they're treating North and Halfpenny's experiences as something of a wake-up call.
No medical expert myself, but instinctively I agree with the point on head guards encouraging more reckless behaviour by the wearer. Same seen in boxing and even to some extent with cycling (leisure/commuting).

Ouch. Hospital pass from Gorgodze there.
Possibly a blessing in disguise - don't think I'm alone in feeling that Halfpenny could do with a bit more time resting his noggin...
That "don't argue" by Bastareaud is an absolute beauty! Note to all would-be tacklers: do not go high on The Bastard.

I think I'm addicted to posting comments on here mate. I'm actually trying to wean myself off the habit as it's taking up way too much of my time. Somehow I just can't resist sharing my ill-informed opinions with the rugby universe...
