Friday Funnies - Stephen Brett, the water bottle, and the big hit

As the week comes to an end, there’s still time for a funny clip from the ITM Cup game between in which Tasman upset Canterbury 27-25. Today however I’ve included a great hit from the match, as it occurred on the same player just a few minutes later.

The amusing clip is of Canterbury flyhalf Stephen Brett attempting to clear the field of a stray water bottle after the medical staff had left it lying around. Mr cool tosses it towards the sideline, but gets serious hangtime as it goes straight up in the air. Good thing it was only at Trafalgar Park, and not in front of a packed 90 000 arena.

Brett wasn’t too bothered though, at least from what he showed on the outside, but a few minutes later he had another rough moment as he picked a channel that was being covered by big prop, Fai Mika, who smashed him.

Incidentally Brett is in the running for the backup spot for the Tri Nations game between the All Blacks and the Wallabies on September 11th. Daniel Carter is of course out now after ankle surgery, so the good bet is that young Aaron Cruden will start at flyhalf.

The place on the bench as cover is open though, and seems to be a three-horse race between Brett, Luke McAlister, and Colin Slade. Some have suggested that Piri Weepu may even fill in there if needed.

Stephen Donald and Mike Delany aren’t options, as they’re both injured. Cruden will get a run in the national championship this weekend but then be rested, while McAlister will get a chance to impress as he starts for North Harbour at number ten against Bay of Plenty.

There’s two clips below, embedded as a playlist. First the funny clip, then the great hit. Enjoy, have a good weekend, and feel free to give your predictions or thoughts on who you think will be turning out for the All Blacks at flyhalf, and as backup.
