The Wraparound from Rugby HQ - Week 13

The Wraparound from Rugby HQ - Week 13

The Wraparound for Week 13 is a cracker, as the guys at Fox Sports have found some clips that can only be seen to be believed. Sean Maloney is at the helm as we delve into the weird, wonderful and occasionally worrying sights from the world of rugby. 

Ex-England internationals, Ollie Phillips and Tim Stimpson, top the bill with their incredible efforts as they took part in almost certainly the coldest game of rugby ever.

Along with support, they have completed the Arctic Rugby Challenge, in which they hiked 100 miles to the North Pole in order to play a full 7s match, all to raise money for the Wooden Spoon charity which funds life-changing projects for disadvantaged and disabled children.

Ma’a Nonu’s crunching tackle on New Zealand teammate, Dan Carter, is worth another look, as the midfield monster appeared to be out to prove a point against the Crusaders last weekend. At least Nonu managed to tackle Carter slightly more legally this time, unlike in 2011

After Toulon achieved a record-breaking third consecutive European Champions title this weekend, there’s a complimentary nod to Australian winger, Drew Mitchell, and his powerful play against Clermont as he bumped off defenders, put in big hits, and scored a sublime try. 

With recent changes to the Australian selection policy, Mitchell is now eligible for the upcoming World Cup, and performances like that certainly won’t harm his chances of selection. 

After the impressive trick conversion efforts from James Stannard and Horacio Agulla in previous Wraparounds, Western Force players Brad Lacey and Albert Nikoro have tried to go one better, as they team up to create a synchronised double trick conversion – not bad!  

Finally, keep an eye out for Seanny losing his flow slightly when he reminisces on previous Cheerleader of the Year winner, Bex Pye of the Hurricanes.
