Friday Funnies - Neemia Tialata scores a try, without the ball

Last Friday you got to see Counties prop Simon Lemalu virtually suspended in mid air as he made a bizarre flying tackle against Otago in the ITM Cup. Today it's another front rower who has come up with an amusing piece of play, although this time he didn't know much about it.

It's little wonder that with the state of All Blacks rugby at the moment, the standard of play in the rest of New Zealand is up there with the best you'll see as the ITM Cup so far has been thrilling to watch.

Round two, where this clip comes from, was jampacked with quality tries, so many in fact that going through all of them took longer than expected, so a compilation of some sort will be posted next week, including the best of this weekend, Round three.

So while Wellington went down to Counties Manukau last weekend, they did have a late burst of great play as their wingers Hosea Gear and Julian Savea started to impose themselves on the match.

In this clip you'll see the two of them playing a large part in what would have otherwise been a great try had it not been for an incredible rip from Samisoni Fisilau, who ruined the moment for prop Neemia Tialata after he had managed to get up there in support brilliantly.

  • The ref could have yellow'd for a shoulder charge and not wrapping in the tackle...tut tut.

  • Textbook way to rip the ball.. always use it. Cant believe he didnt get a yellow though.

  • Imagine how many rounds Tialata had to buy for his fellow front rower at the Third Half.

    Alas, we can only imagine...

    back to the days of when props were still allowed / encouraged to binge drink.

    I think it was called the "amateur era"

  • Was it a replacement scrum half who robbed the ball?

  • some massive court fines imposed on tialata after that i'm guessing!!!

  • to be fair to Tialata... props do sometimes get a bit of stage fright when the see the line and aret quite as efficient as they might be, just like wingers get it when the see a ruck.. and that replacement scrumhalf WAS a beast, looked pretty much the same size as him lol.

  • mate gear was the new zealand winger for a while he's gonna be quite good......... twat

  • ^^^ It's called sacasm you f***ing dick. And since he has 2 caps nearly a year apart it's pretty misleading to say "he was the NZ winger for a while".
