Friday Funnies - The Franciois Steyn rib tickler

The Sharks played the Force last weekend in Perth in an entertaining match where we saw pink vs black as the Sharks came out tops 22-10.

The Force kept the visitors under pressure for long periods, but the Sharks took their chances scoring three tries in a second half blitz.

The Sharks are now in an excellent position, having won five out of six matches, and with six of their last seven games at home.

This amusing moment from the match came when cannon-boot Francois Steyn attempted to clear a kick from the Sharks’ tryline.

Force scrumhalf Josh Valentine effected the charge down, but came off second best as the ball rocketed into his midriff.

Steyn is one of the hardest kickers of a rugby ball around, with a prodigious boot, one you certainly don’t want to get in the way of.

Valentine left the field a few minutes later.

  • Ooooft i bet that hurt.
    Surely the scrum collapsed before the ball came out though? Just an observation tis all

  • Yeah, how dull are some of the English guys?

    "My goodness...they...are...going to *yawn* score a try"

    Not that this was that 'exciting' from the Greg Martin and Co. but in general, they're just a riot. NZ hasn't been bad either this season in terms of commentary...'cept when Nisbo called O'Connor, Drew Mitchell all game.

  • I've been there and it hurt like hell.
    @Domo: just a point about the scrum, you're probably right but I'm glad the ref didn't blow it up and I think that should be the norm. When the ball is sitting right at the back and the front row goes down the ref should just tell the half to play the ball and get on with it. It's already been won and God knows we have enough scrums being reset already without resetting ones that are for all intents and purposes, over.

  • Pink shirts are usually for charity, the ospreys & blues were anyway.

  • "That'd have Gilbert spelt backwards"

    I literally LOL'd when I heard this.

  • Mate, they're wearing pink for breast cancer research, it's a very good cause.
    It's something that's becoming bigger in Aussie sports, teams will wear pink for the odd game to raise money for research.
    It's been alot bigger since Glen Mcgrath's wife passed away from cancer.

  • If the ball landed a little bit lower, I think Steyn could be hired as a non-surgical alternative for a vasectomy...

    That was some boot.
