Nick 'Honey Badger' Cummins interviews Wallaby players after Wales win

Top bloke.

This clip probably surpasses Haskell-cam and that takes some doing.
With that tache and the bandage on his hand he actually has an air of Keith Lemon about him, (random clip for the non-British on here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOiSnfXJ9wY)

Cummins has an awesome way with words though, doesn't he? Here are a few of his classics:

Pick of the bunch his explanation of why he named himself after the Honey Badger:
""One of the stories that inspires me is that it is documented that a honey badger killed a male lion in a one-on-one,'' Cummins said last year ahead of his Test debut against Argentina in Rosario.

"He clawed the canastas off the big fella. The big one-two. That to me is outstanding."


And I believe it is customary for someone to post this any Honey Badger video:

George North and Richard Hibbard huge hits in lead up to Israel Folau try

It's a good option to have in the weaponry, but from my observation 9 times out of 10 crabbing scrumhalves just waste valuable time and space.

Say what you like about Justin Marshall, I fucking love the way he describes these tackles on the replay at the end. "BOOFAAH!!" a particular highlight and a word I'll be making more use of from now on.

Midweek Madness - David 'Superman' Marty flying over the ruck

May I draw attention to the exploits of Delon Armitage here.

Right at the beginning of the clip, we see him apparently being shot by a sniper - don't know who he is trying to kid with that comedy footballer's dive

At 0:13, just after Marty's superman, Armitage jogs in from about 10m away, seemingly just to get involved in any potential handbags.

Still rate him as a player, but so often I just get the impression he'd be more comfortable on a football pitch.

I just don't get it. I just cannot see what he thought he might be able to achieve with this?!? Absolutely crackers.

Very well said.

DanKnapp - well done for hitting the nail on the head. My first thought was "what a wanker", but couldn't put my finger on why it irritated me so much - as a couple of people mentioned above this type of thing happens a lot and is just banter. But when you're that far in the lead with so little time left to play, it really is out of order. What a wanker.

Fantastic tackle though...

Two players red carded in Georgia vs Canada mass brawl

"Stroudos, I expect this stupid remark from you." - Really? Well that is disappointing to hear.

I disagree with your interpretation of the incident though. I think if you run at someone with your hands up at boxing guard height, that other person has a right to think that you're about to punch him, so to get his retaliation in first is quite acceptable.

Anyway, if you look closely at the replays, I think you'll find Canada 8 did throw a punch right at the beginning, however it was a shit punch and landed on Georgia 6's chest.

I also think he would have thrown more punches, but Georgia 6 (not his team-mates who had no right to get involved) had his arms trapped and kept him at arm's length - good defence by him.

No, I don't agree with 8 on 1. All the more lamentable in this case, as Red 6 was clearly capable of handling things on his own.

But then, I don't *agree* with any fighting on the rugby pitch. Personally I've almost always managed to stay out of any of that bullshit. However, when it happens, superior technical fighting ability should not, in my opinion, automatically mean you're labelled the aggressor.

I dislike the posturing and confronting more than the fighting. All that getting in the oppo's grill and puffing your chest out is far better suited to the football pitch.

"take a look at time 1:42 to 1:48, Canadian player runs at the #6", who at that moment is retreating and looks immediately apologetic for the dirty hit he's just made. (By the way, the tackle was indisputably dangerous but it looks more like a misjudgement than a malicious hit to me). Why is Canada #8 running at Georgia #6 with his hands raised? Is it to ask for his telephone number? Georgian bloke is entitled to interpret this as threatening behaviour and, although he shouldn't start throwing punches I think he can argue it was in self-defence.
