The Rugby Club Plays of the Week - Using your head, with Bakkies

They say in rugby there’s a position for everyone. In general you need to be strong, agile, and be mobile. There’s another part of it though, and that is the element many say is the most important – the top three inches. That’s right; you need to use your head.

There was one guy who clearly didn’t use his head last weekend. Or did he? It depends what you’re referring to of course, so the guys at Fox Sports have put together this edition of Plays of the Week that shows us all about using your head.

The Springboks lost to the All Blacks in Auckland last week in a match that saw the Tri Nations champs being totally outmuscled, outplayed, and of course, outthought.

As we know, Bakkies Botha used his head early on as he nutted Jimmy Cowan off the ball. He’s picked up the nine week suspension for his sins, leaving opposite number Brad Thorn feeling a little lonely.

"I'll miss Bakkies," Thorn said. "It's funny to see yourself running around in a green jersey. It's like looking in the mirror all the time," added the man who looks, plays, and thinks like Bakkies.

On the vuvuzela front, many of you will be pleased to see that it’s been banned at most rugby grounds around the world, including Soccer City for the test between the Boks and All Blacks in August. That’s using your head, SARU.

Lookers, Burgers, headbutts, and PIPIP, this edition has it all. Enjoy the weekend.

  • yeah lets stop this racism against s.a fans on here

  • Well SA supporters just ask for it, with their cockiness, no other nation's fans are like that. Change your attitude and we'll all get along just fine.

  • Well, first of all, it's not "racism", second anonymous. But I agree with the first anon that who's to say some drunk asshat kiwis didn't start it? Either way, you're still right in saying leave that shit at soccer games.

    So can't we all just get along? :)

    (And third anonymous, there are fans like that in all nations, regardless of sport. As such, there are also plenty of good SA fans out there as well.)

  • To Nick regarding your comment above stating:

    "Not wise of the saffers in the crowd to start a fight. Save that kind of crap for football matchwa"

  • Let's keep things friendly on here please. Friendly banter is encouraged and enjoyed. Childish bickering, not so much.

  • can we have a video uploaded here that highlights the monkey problem south african rugby is going through at the moment? and yes, you know what i mean when i say monkey.

  • Are you referring to Ricky Januarie? If so, that's an insult to monkeys.

  • I love the girl at 1.09min of the video,soooo beautiful :)

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at July 17, 2010 12:11 pm  

  • Ok, Maybe the south african didn't start it.

    My comment still applies however, it's still not wise of the south african's to start a fight in a crowd full of kiwis and vice versa.

    And I don't think its Ill-thought anti-s.a. racism. Based on my experiences of interacting with rugby fans globally. The only ones i've come accross consistently arrogant and with a football style fan mentality are bokkies.

    But then again, maybe it's just my experiences?

  • I was kicked out of a South African rugby forum last year after Ireland beat them in the November series. The saffers are very senisitive, they put up a load of bad 70's Irish jokes and argued whether football or rugby is their biggest sport. All I said was, that we all know rape is the biggest sport in South Africa and I got banned?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at July 21, 2010 1:06 am  

  • ^ And you're surprised you got banned? hmm

    By Anonymous Benson, at July 21, 2010 9:09 am  

  • Great video

    So when are the hand bags at dawn to give us a resolution to who started the fight.
