Friday Funnies - Neemia Tialata scores a try, without the ball

Friday Funnies - Neemia Tialata scores a try, without the ball

Last Friday you got to see Counties prop Simon Lemalu virtually suspended in mid air as he made a bizarre flying tackle against Otago in the ITM Cup. Today it’s another front rower who has come up with an amusing piece of play, although this time he didn’t know much about it.

It’s little wonder that with the state of All Blacks rugby at the moment, the standard of play in the rest of New Zealand is up there with the best you’ll see as the ITM Cup so far has been thrilling to watch.

Round two, where this clip comes from, was jampacked with quality tries, so many in fact that going through all of them took longer than expected, so a compilation of some sort will be posted next week, including the best of this weekend, Round three.

So while Wellington went down to Counties Manukau last weekend, they did have a late burst of great play as their wingers Hosea Gear and Julian Savea started to impose themselves on the match.

In this clip you’ll see the two of them playing a large part in what would have otherwise been a great try had it not been for an incredible rip from Samisoni Fisilau, who ruined the moment for prop Neemia Tialata after he had managed to get up there in support brilliantly.
