Sean Maloney from Fox Sports Australia is back with another edition of The Wraparound for us, featuring all the weird and wonderful things that make the sport we all love so special. Here is a look at what went down in the last week or so.
Kicking us off this week is Georgia Page, the internet sensation who heroically played on with a broken nose. Not only that but the nose didn’t stop her from carrying on making some crunching challenges. She is one tough cookie thats for sure.
Talking about tough cookies and broken noses, a flashback to 2013 with Australian sevens player Sharni Williams, who catches a knee to the face breaks her nose also. Did that stop her? Not a chance, as she goes on to score the match winning try.
Following on from this, not involving any broken bones this time, is Blade Thompson of the Hurricanes. Blade might want to work on his hand-eye coordination skills as he completley misses his teammates high five to inadvertently slap himself in the face. Blade has made it his own and used the slap as celebration after his try against the Highlanders!
Sticking with New Zealand we move on the one of the best tries you will see this year, courtesy of the Baby Blacks. The try will certainly go down as one of the best in the U20 World Cup, the perfect combination of pace, power and teamwork.
Staying in Italy, we move onto the Samoan team and one heck of a great finish from them. A leap followed by a twist and turn, something probably more suited to gymnastics, finishes off a great try for them.
Before the boys say “Hasta La Vista” (say it in your best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice) the final clip of the week features Chloe Dalton and Cory Jane both showing off their Schwarzenegger impressions, both not too bad but with room for improvement.
