Stirling Mortlock smashes record, and Tony Woodcock

Stirling Mortlock became the highest points scorer in Super rugby history when he overtook Andrew Mehrtens’ record on Saturday as his Brumbies side beat the Blues 37-15 in Canberra.

Mortlock scored a try and kicked seven points as his side overcame a lacklustre start to then pick up a bonus point win after scoring five second half tries.

The Blues made the most of their first half chances, but it was the home side that kept their semi final hopes alive as they moved into the top four, with next weekends match against the Chiefs in Hamilton being crucial to their title ambitions.

Mortlock now sits on 994 total points, four ahead of All Black legend Mehrtens, a feat that please the Wallaby stalwart, but he took most satisfaction from the teams second half performance.

“It's pleasing, but I was asked about it earlier in the week and I said that I'd take the win first and foremost and it was excellent that we grabbed the bonus point and got a good win,” he said.

He was unfortunately taken from the field though after this crunching hit on All Blacks and Blues prop Tony Woodcock. Both players felt the affect of it, but it was actually Woodcock who stayed on the field, despite being on the receiving end.

  • I love the commentator "WATCH OUT FOR MORTL... OOOOFFF!"
    Mortlock does that kinda thing a bit too much really, and comes off worse too.

  • No technique? It's not bloody soccer, he smashed him, who needs bloody 'technique'?
    Just got to put your body on the line.

  • that's why we love him -

    A back who is good enough to hold the points record, and hard enough to put a shot like that on (which he has done countless times before)

    Cheers RD for continuing the clip till the try - showing how that hit set up the Brumbies for the BP.

    It is a bit funny LeBleu but "cock" occurs in a lot of English names and the guys that have to live with it have probably heard all the jokes they're ever going to hear about it by the time they leave school.

  • As always, brilliant commentary from Marto and Kearnsey, and Greg Clarke of course. Nothing compares to Aussie commentary. That SA and Kiwi stuff can be sleep inducing.

  • Anyone notice that Mortlock used the wrong shoulder? Lucky he wasn't more seriously hurt.

    Great commitment.

    By Blogger Kerivoula, at May 13, 2009 9:17 am  

  • Yeah he just went flying in there, it's not always about technique, it's about commitment and putting your body on the line.

    brilliant hit

  • were they kiwi commentators or ozzy, I think they were ozzy. Both have good chat. However the ozzy ones are alot less professional and are always bias towards the australian team which i find pathetic.
    Very often they dont even know the opposition players name and will call them "south african number 11" not even "bulls number 11" for example.
    they hardly talk when the NON Oz team has the ball and get over excited when they do. They even refer to the Oz team as "Us" sometimes. It is extremely unprofessional, dont they know that they are being televised worldwide? But still good banter, u ozzies sure do live up to ur stereotypes lol

  • Kerivoula

    That was one of the first things I noticed.

    Crossed his head. Should have been a right shoulder tackle. Great hit, but that recklessness is what causes Mort to finish more games on the bench then on the field.

    By Anonymous Boz, at May 13, 2009 2:53 pm  

  • It's also why he puts on hits like this. He just flies in there and smashes himself. With the speed he hit him, he didn't have time to worry about technique.
    He just puts his head down and goes for it.

  • Fantastic tackle, although that's the biggest hospital pass i've ever seen.

    By Anonymous andy, at May 14, 2009 1:25 pm  

  • That was a nasty hit, takes a bit to put woodcock down like that.

    I absolutely love the aussie commentators... They're heaps better than our ones (Kiwi) incredibility boring compared.

  • ^^^ tell me about it. these ozzy commentators are some of the best hands down!!! Mortlock is a legend...go the hurricanes :D
