While we may all have slightly different reasons for loving rugby – often due to our body types and the positions we play – there’s one thing that we all respect and enjoy: Great Skill. Some are born with it, others honed it after years of hard work, but we all love seeing it. 

The video below is a well made compilation featuring some brilliant moments from the game we all love. A lot of the clips have been featured here on Rugbydump over the years but they really are worth seeing again, and there are certainly some new ones that you might not have seen before.

One of the most recent examples is the great bit of offloading from both Owen Farrell and Chris Ashton for Saracens a few weeks back, and there are also a few RWC 2015 clips included.

Some of the most skillful players of the modern era feature strongly, with the likes of Quade Cooper, Sonny Bill Williams, Juan Martin Hernadez and Brian O’Driscoll all showing up on more than one occasion.

[You might notice that there are two or three rugby league clips in there, but when you see them you’ll definitely appreciate why]

While you may not agree with the music choice, there’s no doubting the fact that this is a fantastic collection of rugby skill, and one that you should definitely share with your friends, family and teammates. Enjoy, and here’s looking forward to more outstanding bits of play in 2016!

    Leave out SBW and Quade and this video will be about 30 seconds long.

    Well I don't understand 0:42 video with Farrell..... What is skilful about headbutting the ground? Or is this like a 'relative skill' video... Where a video of a prop running is a fantastic effort?

    So, are we all satisfied that it was a deliberate bounce pass/offload, not a knock-on that flukily worked out quite nicely then?

    Awesome video but you could have filled the same length video with just Quade Cooper and SBW. Those two have exceptional skills.

    that was really good. But I really did not need to relive some moments from THAT NZ-France game from a few months back....

    Dear Rugbydump viewer, I sincerely hope you have arrived in the comments section before watching the actual video. Please heed this important advice, which I offer in the spirit of rugby camaraderie.***TURN YOUR SPEAKERS OFF BEFORE WATCHING THIS VIDEO***Don't thank me, I'm sure the rugby universe will find its way of compensating me. Alas it is too late for me and I fear my ears and memory may never recover from this horrendous ordeal. Yours in Rugby, stroudos PS - Bloody brilliant video!!
