Plays of the Month for June Internationals, JWC and Super Rugby

A not-very-good tackle from an excellent tackler.

The thing is with this shoulder barge here on Savea - I believe he got away with it didn't he? ie no penalty? So, although it was actually a shit tackle it put the bloke on his arse and I suspect may have made him think twice before attacking his channel again, (actually in Savea's case this may not be true!).

My point is sometimes a slightly dirty hit, if you can get away with it, is worth it for the psychological boost.

Plays of the Month for June Internationals, JWC and Super Rugby

Dear Mr Dump,
Favour - please can the Grants Whisky ad be set to only play the sound if you click on it? No problem with the ad and it's great to see Geoff Hurst having a laugh with the boys. And it's a nice video, very enjoyable - "yeah, Geoff Hurst - ask your grandad" - love it. I don't even mind the fact I've been served the bloody thing about 50 times now. It's just the automatic sound that's getting on my tits.
Many thanks!

South Africa stun Scotland with eight-try romp in Port Elizabeth

According to my source, (IRB via wikipedia), the Scotland figure is only 38,500. Although that's still quite a bit more that Samoa (23k) and more than five times higher than Tonga's (just under 7k) and those teams, especially Samoa seem able to compete on the global stage.

But to be honest, these numbers are probably a bit misleading anyway - for example England's 2million registered rugby players include people like me who play 5 to 10 matches per season for their club's 4th, 5th or Vets team.

South Africa stun Scotland with eight-try romp in Port Elizabeth

Wow. In a little under 25 hours, you went from interesting observation to full deranged nutjob mode! Which, judging from your usual posts, seems out of character.

Your match-fixing accusations seriously undermine the hard work and dedication of players and coaches in all teams.

The refereeing decisions you highlight were not incorrect and in any case teams must be able to cope with those decisions.

Interesting to see a suggestion of France being "helped to the final", considering that of all nations' supporters it's often the French claiming bias against them.

To your final point re NZ, it seems to me the best way to stitch them up is to give them a weak pool, not a hard one. In 2007 they reached the knockout stage completely under-cooked having coasted through their pool games. In 2011, they were battle-hardened and focused.

"The streaker ignored rule 2(a) of streaking - If you can't see a guard coming for you, check behind your back."

Excellent!

Would like to see that. Shall we have a crack at it in the meantime?

Here's my first stab at it:
Steffon Armitage
Leigh Halfpenny
Gio Aplon
Jason Robinson
Shane Williams


Next up: top 5 under 12 stones...

One of the best Top 5s to date. Pissed myself laughing all the way through this one!

Some scary mothers here too.

I am looking forward to seeing Skelton dominating people over the next few years. But as well as being fucking enormous he's got brilliant dexterity and timing.

Any idea why the iPhone autocorrects Saffa to Staffa? What on earth is a Staffa?
