Magali Harvey scores Try of the Tournament contender vs France

Cracking try. Almost a Robinsonesque side-step at full tilt. Awesome.

England win the Women's Rugby World Cup with victory over Canada

God knows what kind of cretin use the first 20% of a 5-minute clip to show dreadful singing and someone lining up a kick and still have time to include five seconds of the kicker trotting back to her half. All with no context whatsoever to understand the actual RUGBY that was being played that led to the penalty being awarded.

What I can't understand is how the people that own the rights to these things fail so miserably to understand the game of rugby and what actually should be defined as a "highlight".

Note to RugbyDump - you need to introduce a "dislike" function for comments like WelshOsprey's. Sorry if I sound dull but I find this type of comment bloody boring. Not offensive, just dull. From a funny bloke as well.

The Top 5 Best Haka Responses ever!

Good fun as always but I have some issues with the list.

I watched the countdown simply assuming that Richard Cockerill's confrontation with Norm Hewitt would of course be #1 - no question. To not even make the list is bizarre...
http://www.rugbydump.com/2008/12/770/richard-cockerill-stands-up-to-the-haka-in-1997

Other notable omissions as others have pointed out - Chabal showing how he would eat the ABs for his dinner in 2007; Campese treating the whole thing with contempt in 1991 and the Tonga sipi tau in 2011.

#3 is the most pathetic thing I've ever seen in the game of rugby. I thought at the time this could be the end of the Haka in Rugby, as the degree of preciousness had clearly gone off the scale.

The Top 5 Worst Celebrations in Rugby history

No, they're not precious about stuff like that, it's just one of the many awesome things about the show. They had the Scotland celebration in another top 5 recently. In fact that's probably more likely the reason for not including again.

As for the Waratahs - well it looked like the worst ever iteration of the specialist Japanese adult entertainment, (you know what I mean, first syllable making someone jump, 2nd/3rd syllables former Brazil footballer). But unfortunately in this case it looked like the actors had already performed once or twice already that day...

Anyway, *not* a pleasant image!

The Top 5 Worst Celebrations in Rugby history

Heineken sponsor/ed the whatever-it's-called-now Cup but they don't make the winners pour lager over each other.

Or...
VW sponsor Toulon but I don't remember them trying to drink their champagne out of a car.

The Top 5 Worst Celebrations in Rugby history

I don't think I can make the joke I want to make about the Waratahs celebration, for fear of Mr Dump removing it immediately for coarseness and vulgarity. It really is a horrific image which I'm struggling to erase from my brain.

On safer ground, who on Earth celebrates a championship victory at this elite level of the game with Cider!?!? Get them some bloody bubbles you tight bar stewards!

Waratahs win Super Rugby title after nail-biting thriller with the Crusaders

Maybe so, but I fail to see how he's offside here.

Waratahs win Super Rugby title after nail-biting thriller with the Crusaders

Nice one DrG. I read that part of the write-up with incredulity too. Ironically enough, as far as I can see here, there's no penalty offence at all!

Yet another refreshing moment for those of us who enjoy rugby's old-school values around discipline and respect for the officials. I mean, Richie McCaw, best player in the world, questionably penalised in the last minute of a grand final match, knows that his (or the ref's) mistake has almost definitely just cost his side the entire match and championship... Walks away without a single comment to the ref. I shudder to think what would have happened in an equivalent football/soccer scenario.

The Best Tries from the 2014 Super Rugby season

Lovely stuff.

Fekitoa's was the best try I think for me, the way he broke those tackles and accelerated was awesome.

Favourite moment though is the Skelton run and soft-handed pass.
