The Top 5 Moments from the 2001 Super Rugby Season

As we approach the knockout stages of this year's tournament, Sean Maloney and Rugby HQ take a hilarious look back at the 2001 Super Rugby season, one that produced some classic moments that included great tries, incredible celebrations and bizarre off-field antics.

George Gregan - in studio as this is presented - features with some onfield ballett that we posted ourselves way back in 2007, and Stephen Larkham delivers an outstanding try-scoring pass. The Blues' try was incredible, as was the puddle, and the rest is pretty much just good fun.

As Sean said on twitter, it's the most fun he's EVER had on-air, and it shows. View more Top 5's

New Rugbydump Shirts featuring European Player of the Year Steffon Armitage

We recently brought out a new batch of Rugbydump shirts, including one that says no to diving, a little dig at a certain player. His team mate, Toulon's Steffon Armitage, tweeted a pic of himself in one recently, so today we've got a quick look at all our new shirts. Remember, this is rugby.

Huge impact in 'Lingerie Bowl' Gridiron game

It's not rugby, but this clip from women's gridiron features an impressive run that the likes of Ma'a Nonu would be proud of. The behaviour afterwards is questionable, but in terms of a spectacle, the Legends Football League seems to deliver.

It's hard to imagine that a scantily-clad-female rugby form of this would ever be acceptable, seeing as it's 2014 and all, but the Legends Football League is a hit in the USA. It used to be called the Lingerie Football League, for obvious reasons, before the name change.

In fact there is something similar that takes place in Europe each year, so we'll do our best to report on that soon (someone's got to do it).

From the same country that brought us Hooters, the LFL is 7 on 7 women's American Gridiron, where the players wear as little as possible. Until recently, they only wore garters, bras and panties.

It's been touted as the fastest growing sports league in the USA, and has record TV ratings.

In this clip Markie 'Lil Train' Henderson of the Las Vegas Sin (really) bulldozes Chicago Bliss' Dominique Collins, scores the touchdown then lets everyone know about it.

The coaches take it quite seriously too apparently, as can be seen in this clip.

Ma'a Nonu's bumps off Colin Slade with massive charge

Crusaders back Colin Slade, who has broken has jaw on multiple occasions, was on the receiving end of a huge Ma'a Nonu charge during the Crusaders and Blues' Super Rugby game at the weekend. Nonu's superior size and body position meant Slade was sent flying, gumguard and all.

*As pointed out in the comments below, an almost identical thing actually happened to Slade last weekend too, against the Hurricanes' Hadleigh Parkes. View that here

Three streakers at once during Chiefs vs Hurricanes game

Clearly not deterred by what happened to a streaker in Dunedin recently, three streakers took to the pitch during the Super Rugby game between the Chiefs and the Hurricanes at the weekend, causing all sorts of chaos as the security struggled to get to grips with them.

They had a three-prong approach which obviously worked, as they evaded security guards for a good few minutes, taunting them before finally getting caught, one by one.

The stadium security obviously didn't have any off-duty professional rugby players on hand, unlike in Dunedin recently when a streaker was absolutely demolished with a huge tackle from behind.

One of the three streakers has since issued an apology online, saying:

"I apologise to all the viewers that didn't appreciate me streaking It was a stupid and inappropriate thing to do! I was just drunk and wasn't thinking..."

Chiefs flyhalf Aaron Cruden found it highly amusing, as did all the fans in attendance in Hamilton.

The Chiefs broke their three-match losing streak and kept their playoff hopes alive with a 24-16 win.
