Friday Funnies - Austin Healey 'Never been beaten'

We came across this quite amusing vid of ex Leicester Tigers and England international Austin Healey showing himself to be quite the character once again.

While many find his antics irritating, obnoxious and arrogant, there's no doubting that he's a funny guy, and he's respected enough to now be considered a serious rugby pundit with the BBC.

We don't know much about this clip, and the quality isn't great, but its pretty funny anyway.

It's not every day you walk up to a former international rugby player and ask to arm wrestle, but these guys did it, with the smug Healey being more than ready for the challenge, with the aim of earning 12 pints in mind.

Enjoy the weekend.

  • I think this was at Bournemouth Sevens festival 2008. Also he has explained the technique for this. He grabs your thumb and twist it. I think he explains it in some rugby world cup 2007 video he did.

  • Arrogance is a fantastic trait when it's backed up. Austin you legend.

  • Complete legend Austion Healey. One of the games true caracters

  • I'm not English but I've gotta say I find Austin Healy really entertaining. Rugby would be for the worse without characters like him.

  • Austin Healey is Entertainment! Would love to meet this guy, i bet he's awesome to have a beer with...

  • Are you serious? The guys a knob.

  • The price you pay for being someone like Healey, is that you get every drunk prick coming-up to you and trying their luck.

    Now that's got to be a downside of being a well-known sportsman.

  • Always was always will be a complete arsehole, broken wrist yeah ok austen whatever. As for his 6 nations punditry its hopeless. I couldnt think of a worse person to have a beer with!

  • Hes funny and (was) a decent player but a terrible pundit

    By Anonymous TrinhDuck, at March 06, 2009 11:15 pm  

  • I bet he's probs actually quite a nice guy one one one. No point judging him on this piss take night out. He's done a great job with the whole getting disadvantaged and unemployed guys to play rugby thing. Saw it on sky sports. WHat a game!!!!
    RD get England new zealand final of new zealand sevens up, and wanna see some super 14 hits. Tries are awesome, but ya gotta get those hits up boys!!

  • this is at the dubai sevens.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at March 07, 2009 10:39 am  

  • fact is he is was an awesome player with a a huge gob - i.e. he's a million times better pundit than eddie butler, brian moore, guscott, or davies.

    I'm hoping he'll get involved in coaching soon.

    PS RD, great work but like a lot of the others, can't wait to see Varndell's sevens antics on here!

  • When's serious he is actually a decent pundit, but that doesn't change the fact that he's a bit of an arrogant tw@t.

  • haha the man!

    people who can't understand his humour are insecure about their own.

  • Brian Moore is a far superior pundit, he talks sense and comes out with some awesome lines.

  • There's only two people I HATE to do with rugby, one is Austen Healey and two is Lawrence Dallagio!

    By Anonymous HLG, at March 08, 2009 10:49 pm  

  • I thinks he's alright, cracks me up sometimes. Nothing wrong with arrogance, it's often the difference between sportsmen and great sportsmen. He absolutely destroyed that guy in the arm wrestle.

    By Anonymous andy, at March 09, 2009 3:07 pm  

  • lol he always make me giggle, loved him in the lions vs brumbies

    video reminded me of this

  • to the guy above
    dallagio is the smugest most slimey rugby player on the planet. Hes the opitomy of english arrogance.
    I dont know anyone who isnt english that likes him.

    By Anonymous Roger, at March 10, 2009 1:29 am  

  • you can keep calling him an arrogant prick, but the fact is he backs it up with quality performances, not just in rugby, as proven on this video, and the football cross bar challenge video. he is very confident in his ability, and so he should be.

    the only reason people hate him is because they can't stand how much better he is at life than them.
