The Shortball highlights from Round 11 are packed with some amazing clips, all wrapped up in a great video from the guys at Fox Sports. From terrible tackles to sensational scores, Sean Maloney leads the way through all the events from the past weekend. 

Ian Prior’s tip tackle on Tim Nanai-Williams doesn’t look any better the second time around, and it only went downhill from there for the Western Force as they suffered a 35-27 defeat to The Chiefs on the night, meaning they occupy bottom spot on the Super Rugby table. 

David Pocock’s first half hat-trick is undeniably impressive and worth another look as the Brumbies flanker continues his fine form. The turnover wizard is hot on the heels of Australia captain, Michael Hooper, as both look to claim the starting 7 jersey before the World Cup.

As if Beauden Barrett’s spectacular 5-pointer’s in Round 8 and Round 10 weren’t enough for the Hurricanes, they’ve gathered the Try of the Week title for Round 11 also, with another exceptionally skillful score, this time finished by TJ Perenara against the Reds.

It’s all capped off with some trademark monster hits, a look at how the Reds paid their respects on Anzac day, and a quick piece of nostalgia with a classic clip of All Black legend Zinzan Brooke’s enormous drop goal against England in the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

As April comes to an end, keep an eye out for the Plays of the Month post compiling all the best, worst, and unforgettable moments from the past 4 weeks of Super Rugby.

    Obstruction on dummy runners can always be a bit tricky, but Folau on that Ashley-Cooper try looked a bit on the wrong side of the fence. In gridiron, that'd be an excellent block.
