Hurricanes set up final clash with Highlanders after big win over the Brumbies

I bloody hate defending against people like that. I reckon I'd rather get completely steamrollered a-la-Tuilagi/Savea than be left grasping at thin air by some nimble little prick.

Hurricanes set up final clash with Highlanders after big win over the Brumbies

1:15 - only heard of this bloke (Nehe Milner-Skudder) a couple of weeks ago. Seems to have slipped under the radar a bit, but I saw some clips of him now and he seems to be lethal. Outrageous step and speed and always seems to get a good pass away.

I hear he's made the All Blacks training squad. Will be a tall order to force his way into the actual team, but he does seem to offer something other players don't.

3:20 - Another Pocock Breakdown Special. It's never occurred to me to try that. I reckon some refs would penalise that because it just looks a bit odd!

Stuart Lancaster explains David Strettle withdrawal as RWC squad train together

Not yet. Going to have it serialised in the Daily Bastard - their lawyers will be helpful in defending why I hacked Lancaster's phone, read his emails and bugged his office at Pennyhill Park for six months.

Understand it.
Get that it's not a big deal.
Still don't like it.

Eh?? Does the TMO watch different footage to what we see or something? Does not look in touch from the clip I just watched... Was he looking at the silver boots of the other guy arriving just in front of him?

Yeah, that's more likely!

Come to think of it, the scenario I described is more like the sort of shit Sir Clive might have pulled while being "advised" by that prick Campbell.

0:20 - Joost gets bounced. (But halts the big man's progress)
0:31 - Stransky gets wrongfooted.

That's a very plausible theory!
