Just another intense rugby compilation

It's the new year and 2009 promises to produce another cracking 12 months of rugby action across the globe. All the biggest names, in the biggest tournaments, as well as the mouth watering British & Irish Lions Tour of South Africa. It should be a feast of rugby, so we hope to be part of it in some way, and hopefully enhance the experience for you.

As always, we like to scour the globe for the best and most enjoyable rugby action available, sharing it with you, the rugby fan.

Being the physical, contact sport that it is, rugby is very much about intensity. It doesn't get any more intense than this video that we've come across, made by a regular RD user and contributor.

The video features all things rugby, which includes both Rugby League and Union action from around the world. While we know some of you don't enjoy the League stuff, plenty do, making this an enjoyable compilation video all in all.

The good thing for the Union fans is that most of that footage is clean, while the League stuff features some massive punch ups from past and present. Overall, it's an action packed video that we felt like sharing. We hope you enjoy, and have a happy new year.

Time: 06:24
Note: As always, we simply show the videos - we dont throw the punches or make the dirty tackles.
Did you enjoy the video for the good moments, or find it in poor taste? We're keen to know your thoughts.



  • This video is disgusting and shows rugby in a very poor light. Rugby League players are mindless, idiotic thugs. The Union clips were really good though, as you'd expect.

    rugby players are not guys who just go to the gym or throw punches.. the video showed guys who act like freaks.
    rugby isn't about fights or dirty tackles, this video doesnt shows the love, the respect or the spirit of rugby. instead of this, show clean an effective tackles. although"Try savers and rib breakers" is very very good... try to show that this is the best team sport ever made

  • The anonymous really came out in numbers on this post.

    Anyways, the clip was a wee bit over dramatic, what with all the Clint Mansell music. The best parts were the bits of tries and hand-offs interlaced between all the punch-ups and shitty fighting.

    I do agree that 'Try Savers and Rib Breakers' is a better series.

    By Anonymous Ruck_Off, at January 04, 2009 5:43 pm  

  • I think that there were way to many league clips. Rugby league is a less popular sport than Union, so therefore we should be watching less punchups and more great skill. However, i loved the League clip where one of the players runs a switch and passes the ball behind his back. Awesome skill. It would be nice to see more of that than the league punchups. The only punchups we want to see are the ones were a really tiny guy kicks the S*** out of a big guy, or a fight were one player goes to town and destroys the other guy completly. But yet again, rugby is a skilled sport, not a bunch or brutes figting.

  • Change the tune guys! All these 'anonymous' comments are just poor, especially the first one.

    You guys are all starting to sound like tv commentators who are under contract to say things like "oh we don't want to see that" when there is a fight yet they all are secretly loving them.

    How blind can you be when you say things like "the union clips were really good though, as you'd expect". You guys all talk about rugby league as if its some sort of black magic.

    i for one love union, but i don't just pointlessly slag league like some people here do.

    Anon in the first comment really is a shining example of this.

    By Anonymous Ross, at January 04, 2009 6:30 pm  

  • I've never understood the mentality that says fighting in rugby is ok, because it's "no pussy sport". I have no problem with fighting, just do it in a ring. I want to see rugby. I can go watch a documentary about football hooliganism if I want to see a bunch of people beating on each other. Considering how difficult it is to get any rugby footage at all in the US (at least outside major metro areas), RugbyDump is one of my only sources to watch. This vid has some good stuff in it, but nowhere near enough to make it worth sorting through the nonsense.

    By Anonymous istya, at January 04, 2009 6:36 pm  

  • There's clips in there of fights from both Union and League.

    So not all the Union clips are clean like is being suggested.

    I infact cut out alot of Union fights on the basis that the League fights were better. But i understand it's all preference, and alot of people want such incidents cut out of the game.

    I personally love to see the ocassional biff(As you can clearly see).

    In my defence, the video wasn't made with the intention of being featured on RugbyDump. Nor was there any real effort or preference when making the video; I simply used material i had. Ugly or clean.

    Appreciate the feedback still, and will make another video showing only the 'clean' stuff when i get a chance(Ala Why I love Rugby... even though that had a few fights).


    Ps. Bring back the biff ;)

  • I dont mind a few fights as long as teh fights are a reflection on a really tense game. If a game that contains plenty of skill and passion and intensity then a fight (or a brief dust up), in my opinion, adds to the high drama of the game. But twith the amount of fights in thsi clip it looked like ice hockey. Rugby involves skill and from more than just one player. More rugby.

    Also I don't see why everyone hates rugby league so much :/

    the music is shite

    I mean lets be serious here...someone took the time to put something together. If you don't like it, try to one up it! Everyone is so quick to condemn it, yet rugby compilations are scarce on the internet (compared to other sports).

    Thanks for posting it! A video is a video! Sure I agree watching League players take swipes at each other isn't very entertaining, but other then that, good post.

    By Anonymous Joel, at January 04, 2009 7:40 pm  

  • Its not as bad as people posting are making out, the fights and aggression have always been a part of both formats of rugby going back through time.

    So there's no harm in seeing the side of rugby that always has and will continue to exist.

    On another note there were quite a few clips of what appear to be the england 7s winger. Any chance of putting those clips together for a bit of a compilation? Haven't seen much of him but he looks impressive.

  • I'm sorry but I really have to say I hated this video. Sure there are some nice skills shown there but the main focus with epic music is on fighting. I can't watch any game where I live and that's the only thing offered to me? That sucks. I don't even know which part is league or union and i don't mind as long as it's good rugby. This is not good rugby.

    Sure some guy put this video together but it hinders rugby more than it helps it. I don't wanna play in a punching game like it's shown here. Rugby is a noble sport where fighting can happen because of the intensity and it should NEVER be put foward as a great part of rugby...even more in a retrospective of the year. I mean come on, Shane Williams (player of the year) wasn't even shown there.

    I'm sorry for the guy who did this video but it's plainly not relevant on this website unless it's there to show what rugby ISN'T.

  • I see in this video two things, a great work by your part making this compilation with great effects and a big search for some clips and a I appreciate that a lot but in the other hand I see in this video all the things that


    I like to see a video of friendship, loyalty, of guys with guts like Borges tackling Chabal in the RWC, of talent, side step, magic pass, pure aim kicks.

    I think that rugby is much more than fights that have nothing to do with the rugby spirit. What about the "Third Time" (no English here) In the gallery of rugby dump there isn't any video of that.

    Well I hope you continue with your work that is great.

    This is exactly the crap I was talking about in my previous comment. Fighting is *not* "what happens" in rugby. I've seen very, very many matches without fights. There's no reason for it, and no reason to tolerate it. If you want fights, go watch UFC clips.

Yes, they have their diffrneces but Im not sure if some of u people noticed but fights were from league AND union. So enough of the pointless slagging of league it just makes u seem like an arrogant/ ignorant twat.

    Also ironic that you point out Schalk showing us how to play like real men... Considering those 2 hit ups were very League like, and almost identical can be seen in any Rugby League match.

  • Rugby league players have very bad behaviours: dangerous tackles, coward punchs, disrespectul "footballer" celebrations...


    What dangerous tackles? You'll find with the nature of Rugby League defense, there is far less lifting in the tackle, which takes a hell of alot of dirty tackles out of the game.

    Unless you're counting tackling with your shoulder as dirty? In which case you're soft.

    There is no cowardly League punches in the video either. Most those fights were fair. Which is alot more than you get in French Union.

    And there is 0 football celebration in Rugby League lmao. There's about one football celebration every 5 years. Compare this to the homo erotic NFL-like celebrating by some of the Leicester and Wasps lads this year! A bit of niggle from one of the Tongans after a try, but nothing you haven't seen in Union... Infact Union is played in such a way that niggle after the try is more prevelant(More men both defending and attacking the try line)

    Basically the point i'm trying to get at is you're an idiot. And most people downing Rugby League as a sport are morons who clearly haven't watched League. It's pot calling the kettle black if i've ever seen it.

    If you don't like League you don't like League. There's really no need to spew uninformed drivvel and make slanderous(And mainly false) comments.

    The irony is unreal.

We all know that rugby is so much more than fighting and mindless punching, every time I see a punch being thrown at any of my club matches, professional, league and especially union matches I feel a bit embarassed. I enjoy the videos which display the great fends, steps, team/individual tries. That's a lot more inspiring than mindless (ehum, league) rugby.

    By Blogger Flooz, at January 05, 2009 4:59 pm  

  • Reactions to what? Fights and big hits. Sure, fans and commentators a like love them(As do alot of Union fans and commentators)

    Shoulder charges are LEGAL in Rugby League. And rightly so. So of course League fans are going to enjoy seeing them.

    Nobody cheers on clotheslines or coathangers though. Some commentators might be percieved as excited because alot of NRL commentators are very charismatic... Excited, that's a bad word because it implies some sort of underlying acceptance or support for clotheslining someone in the way you're wording yourself.

    It's not different than boxing commentators getting hyped at the sight of a headbut or elbow going in. Doesn't mean they agree or condone the incident. But it's a noteable event within a match that adds to the drama and tension, so 'excitement' usually ensues.

    The basic point is you obviously haven't watched enough of League to make an informed and proper opinion. Highlighted by the non-existant 'differences' you're trying to point out.

    All the League clips were just fights, and half of the Union clips were of after-the-play punches. There's no merit in showing these fights, what purpose does it serve? There's so much more to the game then fists, but sadly this video fails to showcase that. As well, half the "big hits" here are illegal, as they're either high or done without wrapping (referring to the Union clips), so whats to celebrate there?
    Create another that shows the true beauty of rugby, not the stupid brutishness you've decided to put on offer here.

  • Give me a fucking break.

    You obviously haven't watched much Union if you're trying to pin that as something that happens strictly in League.

    Infact, that is the first time i've EVER seen that happen League.

    Why do you choose to ignore when the same happens in Union? I've lost count of the amount of times a try scorer has placed the ball on the defenders head... Patted the defender on the head in a dickhead manner... started rolling around trying to wrestle with the defender/try scorer(Lewis Moody with the try scorer atleast every game he plays!)

    There's even been fights in Union after a try has been scored.


    I am not trying to say it doesn't happen in League. But it's hypocrisy at its finest.

    And i'm not trying to condone it either. I'm not keen on the NFL-esque faggotry that is leaking into both codes in terms of rubbishing your opposition and being an arrogant bellend.

    At the same time. As i stated before. I threw this video together as something to put on my Youtube page for Christmas, as i was getting nagged by viewers to upload a video.

    There was literally no effort or thought process in the video. I put all my clips into a timeline, arranged them a little, played with the lighting and playback speed, and added a song.

    If i removed every clip percieved to be a poor representation of the game i'd have had an incomplete video.

    It's also humourous that this negative video has so many replies... Yet when Grant was posting this 'real', 'good', 'clean' rugby you're all referring to and calling out for... None of you were interested in them! Got about 8 replies each.

    Some people just whinge and whine for the sake of it. It's really no wonder he can't be arsed posting much videos these days. Can do no right.

    I still love union too but get off your high horses and give league the respect it deserves.

  • You dont need to make a video with bunch of fights and dirty hits to show rugby is intense
    and cut the league shit plz
    no1 likes league
    league is for pple w/ no talent xcept fighting

  • anon for 11:27-11:28 you come across as a prick trying to provoke a response. If ure going to make a comment like that think it through properly. If u actually think wat u said is true u must be one of the most idiotic people on the planet. And as for league players possesing no talent besides fighting u couldnt be more wrong. Have u heard of players like

    preston cambell
    scott prince
    andrew johns
    billy slater
    greg inglis
    isreal folau
    mark gasnier
    benji marshall
    bret stewart
    etc etc
    the list goes on but back to my main point your comments just show u wat a narrow minded tool u are.

    Thnx for the video rancid
    and thnx RD

  • League's a good sport. Fighting is great, I love ice hockey because of it. It only happens every once in a while anyway. If you talk like it's gonna bring down the sport or something you're probably new to rugby. There's always been fighting, always will be, it's a good part of the game. Deal with it, you soft as *&^%$ girly men.

    I didn't make this video for anyone who frequents this site. So i honestly couldn't care.

    Have i critiscised or objected to anyone for saying they don't like the video? No. It's a video on the internet, it's really not the end of the world if people don't like it.

    What i'm objecting too is idiot Union fans who don't know their arse from their elbow. Which would include you.

    I don't work for RugbyDump or upload any videos on RugbyDump. I didn't ask Grant to put up this video. He mentioned he might put it up and checked that i was good with that, and i was.

    Not only that, but i suggested to him it would probably get mainly negative feedback anyway. Because i'm aware of the number of whiny fuckwits on Rugbydump these days.

    I'm sure Grant would be more than happy for you to submit your own videos. Though i doubt you have the mental intellect to download the software, let alone create a video.

    I'll await your obviously insightful response ;)

  • gday boys, im a league player and have never really liked union, but am starting to follow it/understand it more and its a good game, got some great talent and skill. and love this site.

    id just like to pay a bit of a tribute to rugby league back rower sonny fai, who has gone missing presumed drowned after trying to save his brother from a rip on a beach in auckland.

    sonny was a 6'4 109kg frame who was devastating in attack and defence and was a star of the future. he was considered to be the next sonny bill williams and showed great potential. i think from the rugby world in general we should show our condolences for his family and friends, by the adminstrators posting a tribute video if you can find any footage.

    its sad that a great football talent, and a decent young blokes life was lived way too breifly.

    anyways boys, theres my two cents, and league and union are both great games, so stop fuckin arguing and embrace them both for what they are

  • I have to agree with Diogo Dabadie, there is a bit too much of an emphasis on battering in this video. Rugby is about a lot more than mere strength, which is why is is such a good game.

    By Anonymous Baggersonfire, at January 06, 2009 12:49 pm

    I actually feel sick.

  • I have no problem with you showing punch ups or dirty tackles. Both league and union are tough sports with alot of physical contanct.

    The psychology of both the game and the play ground dictate that you should never shy away from a bully. If a player doesn't want a punch, he shouldn't act the cunt.

    If anybody is under the allusion that rugby is about floppy haired wingers receiving some slick passing and finishing beautifully in the corner, they are delusional themselves. I'm cocksure even the great JPR Williams was prone to the odd sneaky slap.

But watching it again, i think i can appreciate that the biff is part of our rugby culture whether its league or union, and i also appreciate that its probably the only 2 sports in the world that can be played by real men! Soo ignore my comment before :D

  • Yeah because the Olympic organisation is going to deny sevens rugby entry to the Olympics because one of them sees a video on youtube. I guess they'll ban tai kwon do, wrestling, boxing and all other contact sports from the Olympics too right? After all they are a bunch of pathetic, snivelling girls, like the people on this board complaining about the 'scary men fighting'.

  • i thought it was great. and for those sayin there are too many league fights theres just as many union ones in that vid, a lot from the NPC. i can see wellington in there, i can even see english teams- wasps, leicester. just so happens that the league ones are often on a larger scale so thats why it seems like its only league.
    so stop whinging like pussys and give the bloke who made it some credit... OR come up with a better video and post it!

    -Dont mind the fights, but I'd much rather see awesome play. (your random tries of 2008 video was incredible)

    -Make the cuts a little longer. I want to actually be able to make sense of what the heck is going on

    -Unlike some, didn't mind the music, altho generally I'd rather associate a vid with commentary, the voices are famous/familiar for a reason

  • Rancid .. I agree with pretty much all you've said in your replies .. some people are so quick to show their ignorance of both Union and League with their stupidity and prejudice that you just have to ignore them. I sometimes wonder if they've ever properly watched a game in either code in their life. The whole video might not be to my taste but you have no obligation to cater just to me ... I still understand why you put it together.

    By Anonymous robert, at January 09, 2009 7:00 am  


    Please ignore the whinging c&*ts that are ragging on your vid. I like a 'bit of biff' and it is clearly a well made video.
    The nerds commenting on here clearly would not have the where with all or creativity to make something like this.

    And to all you whining good goodies going about there being no place for fighting in rugby. Have you ever played a rugby match? God, get a life

  • Y'know folks...i love rugby but i sometimes wish we were allowed once in a while to lay into each other, like league players do, i mean Union players are alot bigger and id think they'd spill quite a bit of A+ / O- ...lol..imagine Schalk and Jerry goin at it, wow.

    No seriously theres no room for fighting in Union...glad for that.

  • There's plenty of room for the occaisonal punch up. Any rugby player worth his salt will have gotten into a scrap or two in his career, I've been in loads and I just play recreationally.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at January 10, 2009 1:19 am  

  • im a union fan from a union city but everyone needs to lay off league. if you watched the rugby league world cup you would see some of the talent in even the small sides like the tongans, its just unreal, as well as the likes of benji marshall, probably the best attacking rugby player regardless of code in the world. the people complaining about this video are just pathetic, you know nothing about league, so dont just say ridiculous things like its a game for thugs, there are plenty of union players out for a fight. i guarantee the majority of people moaning about this video either dont play rugby or are the types that have to get subbed when their boots get dirty. grow a pair.

Does that include Jason Robinson, Lote Tuqiri, Rocky Elsom, Wycliff Palu, Brad Thorn or any of the other dozens of players who have played both league and union proffesionally? Or it's only relevant when some idiot who knows sweet F all about league wants to make a random, mindless generalisation about a sport they know nothing about, which happens to be almost the same sport as the one they so stridently defend?
