Friday Funnies - Justin Marshall Header

After a crazy week for the Rugbydump crew, things have resumed normality (as normal as it gets), and the Friday Funnies are back for this week with this funny incident during the EDF Enery Cup Semi Final in Cardiff last weekend.

The Ospreys team in Wales are blessed with two very fine scrum halfs. One, an up and coming, no nonsense, physical and extremely large number nine. And the other, an All Black legend.

The rivalry between Welsh international Mike Phillips and former All Black Justin Marshall is there for all to see. In last years EDF Cup Semi, Phillips was still at the Cardiff Blues when Marshall totally outplayed him, which ignited the rivalry ahead of Phillips' switch to the Ospreys.

They're now teamates and have to fight for the starting berth each week. We couldn't resist posting this little clip of Marshall getting whacked in the head from Phillips' pass while on was on as a blood replacement for Lee Byrne.

Tongue in cheek, I think we know who won that battle.

NOTE: We're aware that this video is currently down, but are working on getting it back asap.

  • he came on a replacement for Lee Byrne, possibly at full back? no idea..
    Marshal needs no introduction (funny guy too :P) we're lucky that in terms of international rugby we can call on both Dwayne Peel and Mike Phillips :P

  • Marshall came on as a blood replacement for Lee Byrne at full back. He's played there for the O's before I think.

    Anyway... funny clip!

  • You should upload Castrogiovanni's try vs Wasps (the other semi final)here! Extremely funny, especially the finish.

  • Marshall legend, Ospreys are lucky to have the choice of him or Phillips.

    Bruno, that's already been posted. :)

  • ha andy nicol just spent the whole game picking faults in the ospreys performance (though they could have been better)
    "a scrum half playing out of position perhaps?"
    yes, i'm sure playing out of position causes you to attempt to catch balls with your head rather than your arms.

  • It does look funny.
    But was Philips error.
    It looks like it was suposed to be a short ball to Parker. Marshal went to bind onto him and the pass went AWOL.

    Yes "anonymous" I think you're right. Marshal might have played for the Ospreys before. Once or twice.

  • James i agree andy nicol did seem pretty negitive towards the ospreys
    like when ian evans put that supurb grubber through for shane williams
    he said 'no need for that just pass it'

    cmon ian evans is a lock!!!

  • Shame to see Phillips is now out for 6 months. Big blow for the Ospreys European hopes.

  • Why wasn't this try by Francisco Bosch a knock on?

    By Anonymous kvt, at April 03, 2008 1:20 am  

  • When he came off the commentators said this " He has made no tackles, no runs, no passes and one header. Never put scrum halfs at fullback."
