Wales take on the Crossbar Challenge

It’s been a while since we’ve featured a Crossbar Challenge here on RD, so this week we’ve got one for you, even though it’s slightly different to what you’re used to.

In this clip we see the original form of the Crossbar Challenge, as the Welsh rugby team make an appearance on Soccer AM, attempting to hit the top of the goal post with a football.

As you can see in the clip, fun was had by all, with many of the Welsh players showing the fun side of their characters. There are notable appearance by Andy Powell the warrior, Alun-Wyn Jones the workhorse, and midfield maestro Paul Scholes.

Kicking a football is clearly different to kicking a rugby ball, as many of them get it hopelessly wrong. It’s all good fun though.

Stephen Jones, for those of you wondering, recited the longest welsh word, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. It's also the longest domain name in existence actually. Nice easy one to remember.

  • Gavin Henson is such a humourless, self-centred (no pun intended) tosser. God I hope he doesn't go on the Lions tour, there's no way he's a team player. Granted, he can play a bit, but the other Lions will kill him before the Springboks get a chance...

    ....the others seemed like good blokes, even though they can't kick....

  • I hope there was some serious wind lol. I can understand the ball going sky high, but it shouldn't be that hard to keep it on target lol!

    Funny clip

  • They should go around to the top ten countries in the world and do this.
    Scott Quinnell should do his aswell with them.
    I'd love to see him go to munster.
    theyre the biggest messers in world rugby by a country mile.

  • I just realised I've never seen A-W. Jones without his scrum cap xD
    When he walked to the cam I said to myself: "who the f**k is this?!?" ^^

    By Anonymous ryebye, at March 26, 2009 8:28 pm  

  • Notice how when everyone else shanked it there was massive jeering and laughing and when Henson duffs it there is complete silence. It's clear that he has no banter with any of the lads and they pretty much hate him!

    By Anonymous Ross, at March 26, 2009 8:44 pm  

  • Ha, ha! Nice one "Gavin Henson" comment. Sadly, we know it's not GH, as you can write...

    By Blogger Kerivoula, at March 26, 2009 8:45 pm  

  • henson and jones should at least be able to get it on target, its so much easier to kick a football straight than a rugby ball!

    By Anonymous caucau's no.1 fan, at March 26, 2009 9:18 pm  

  • Ryan Jones getting pants'd in the beginning and of course Powell being Powell.

    Good stuff, it would be great to see this with even more international teams. I'd imagine the French would be pretty funny.

  • It's funny that people are suggeting Henson has no banter with his team mates. He's out with them in Bridgend ans Swansea all the time, even during off season.

  • Powell looks like the biggest pornstar in this video. I think it is the hair and moustache combo. BEEERRRRIIIIIINNNNGGGGGG

  • Andy Powell is massively insecure and overcompensates by trying too hard to be funny...

  • I don't really get Andy Powell's part but still it's really funny, what a legend !

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at March 28, 2009 8:44 pm  

  • I dont know why people keep giving henson sh*t, he is an extremely gifted player and people should stop letting jealousy take over. I really dont see what he did wrong in that clip. I hope he goes on the lions and shows all of you doubters how good he is.

    And who ever said andy powell isn't that big for a no8 needs to stop staring into thier computer, get out of the house and step into the real world!!

    I agree, he's a dick

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at March 30, 2009 2:31 am  

  • A) It looks like Henson was cut off which leads me to believe he said something inappropriate for tv

    b) He is still a twat

    c)Powell is Big compared to me and you, but he is small compared to international No.8's. Doesnt mean he isnt good


    d)Def. agree... Make Munster next X-bar challange

  • Forwards are always the funny men. All the backs just went there , said their names and kicked, except Stephen Jones.

    "Paul Scholes, midfield maestro."

    LOL!!!

    By Anonymous Pedro Fleury, at March 31, 2009 6:21 pm  

  • I've tried like 20 times to follow along with Stephen Jones when he says that massively long Welsh word, and I've realised that its impossible. That's probably the craziest word ever, and it has 4 'l's in a row in the middle. That doesn't even make sense, haha.
    Love the vid though, and I think its pretty much impossible to draw any real conclusions about Gavin Henson's relationship with the Welsh team from it...

    By Anonymous gongshow, at April 01, 2009 1:54 am  

  • andy powell cracks me up!! i personally think he would liven up a night out by just being the tank he is, yeh so what he is ripped, you cant hate a guy cos he is pleased he is ripped, the end of the day its not like he didnt work for it, with all the drugs testing nowadays least you know he did it legitimately (i hope, otherwise you guys will make me look like a tool!)

    gotta love the paul scholes comment!!

    oh yeh, all the balls go off to the left.....apart from hensons........what a knob that guy is!
