Five Biggest Hits of the 2013/2014 Aviva Premiership Season

Marler's is a well-deserved winner here. Perfectly executed technique on a big bloke running at pace.

Huge hit by Tonga in Pacific Nations Cup draw with Samoa

The highlights clip is worth a butcher's.

Looks like a pretty entertaining game - some decent running rugby and a few big hits as you'd expect.

Nice solo try by the Samoa #14, from the halfway line, right up the middle of the park. Quite amusing to see 4-5 defenders taken out of the move by one massive telegraphed dummy!

Huge hit by Tonga in Pacific Nations Cup draw with Samoa

I'll be honest, I enjoyed the tackle just before this more. The one where the rampaging winger was stopped dead in his tracks right on the 22. But in that case the winger made a cheeky offload (clearly forward, by the way) and kept the move going. No chance here of the prop making a quick offload!

Slightly melodramatic, don't you think?

The Top 5 You're Kidding Me (Bloopers) moments

Nice one Eddie, never heard of that one before.

Good tackle as well. (I mean the way he stopped the big second row, not his genitals).

Closing montage from the last ever Heineken Cup PLUS tournament stats

"Juan Smith, who scored a crucial second-half try at the Millennium Stadium, was the season's leading tackler with 88 (8 missed). Kelly Brown was second with 87 tackles, 0 missed."

87 tackles with ZERO missed!?!?

As well as being an absolutely insane statistic, I would suggest that 87/87 is more impressive than 80/88...

The Shortball from Rugby HQ - Round 15

Honey badger don't give a shit about the big lion. Honey badger don't care, he's so nasty. Oooh.

The Shortball from Rugby HQ - Round 15

I still don't get the format - a bloke with the personality and animated presentation style of Sean Maloney told to speak as monotonously as he can??

Can't see what's wrong with the Highlanders try (0:35). Corner post is OK and ball seems to clearly touch the whitewash before his elbow touches the touchline...

And this is one post-match interview with the Honey Badger I'd definitely like to see!! (2:15) Confession time: I've actually done a worse kick than that...

Bryan Habana issues apology for taking a dive in Heineken Cup Final

Cowan v Nonu was the one I was thinking of:
http://www.rugbydump.com/2011/02/1837/maa-nonu-big-shoulder-on-jimmy-cowan-results-in-red-card

I actually think that one was hilarious. Crowd were going mental because they could see him on the big screen grinning to himself with satisfaction, which just made him piss himself laughing to their even greater fury. And to be fair, he had just been smashed in the head by Nonu's flying shoulder, so it was rather impressive that was not actually that badly hurt!
