The Shortball from Rugby HQ - Round 12

2:11 - Vermuelen swatting the scrumhalf like an annoying fly is the highlight! Is it Aaron Smith? Thought he'd have more sense than going so high on a big boy like that... Hilarious anyway.

Rugby HQ Plays of the Month from April 2014

I don't know whether to be impressed that you know the names of the cretins that produce that music or not.

Hmm, difficult to reply to this in defence of the cheerleaders without inadvertently categorising oneself as a retarded person, so well played on the phrasing of your comment.

Bit ambivalent about them to be honest. I'm with you in as much as I do not like cheesy American shit and I despise all this artificial "atmosphere creation" - like for example playing music at trytime, when all you really want to hear is the roar of the crowd itself (or polite ripple of applause).

However, I do enjoy a good perv at some half-naked slags. Especially if they've got their feet by their heads.

The Shortball from Rugby HQ - Round 11

Watching Sean Maloney in this straight-jacketed presentation style is like seeing a caged lion in the zoo. Such a waste. Cannot fathom why the Plays of the Week format - a winning formula if ever there was one - has been dropped. This segment was only 3 minutes and I nearly nodded off.

@Oliver - it is French paranoia and the refs do not have it in for you froggies.

You're welcome.

Honey Badger - A Devotional Song to Nick Cummins

@Dave - ahh, halcyon days. Hope we get to again see blokes in white shirts reading the game and being ready for offloads the way Greenwood, Back, Healey & Kay do in this clip. The irony is many people tend to think of that 2001-03 period being dominated by forward-oriented play with Wilkinson simply kicking points - couldn't be further from the truth.

Crowd favourite Nick Cummins bags a hat-trick as Force upset Waratahs

Good to see the Badge getting some meat. I love how on the first one (interception) he carries on sprinting even when he's 20m clear!

What has me rubbing my eyes with incredulity though is "Dane Haylett-Petty played 60 minutes of club football today and arrived an hour before the game, and then played 75 minutes of Super Rugby" - does this happen a lot? Seems unbelievable at this level of the game. Outstanding effort anyway.

The Shortball from Rugby HQ - Round 9

Couldn't agree more with the sentiment though!

Watching Sean Maloney presenting deadpan to camera, without any of the studio banter, is such a deflating feeling. It's like whenever Shane Williams used to kick instead of going on a run.
