Rugby Club Plays of the Week - Rounds 15 & 16

It's time to catchup on some Plays of the Week from the Rugby Club in Australia, this time from rounds 15 and 16 of Super Rugby. There's big hits, great tries, dancing girls, and even a bit of a bromance.

By now I'm sure you're familiar with what's served up from the guys at the Rugby Club, Sean Maloney in particular. It's good stuff, and basically sums up a weekend of Super Rugby in a few minutes, in a way that can only be described as, well, Australian.

The good news is that the all Aussie bias has dissipated slightly, with a more rounded view on the best bits lately. That said, it is an Australian show, meant for an Australia audience only, so it's all in good fun and as long as nobody losing an eye, we can't really complain.

A special mention goes out to Tana Umaga for his great try (aged 67) against the Blues, and gasman David Smith of the Force, who flew in against a rather minty looking Highlanders side. The Stormers were also on fire in Round 16 with some great tries, and see if you can spot Pat O'Connor's headbutt against the Bulls. See it? Yeah, thought not.

Have a good weekend, and if you're feeling bromantic, just go with it.

Time: 04:31

  • "Headbutt" was great. Not quite sure what the TJ was thinking. Don't think he was entirely sure either.

    I especially loved "67" year old Tana, obviously using his pension to buy some rugby boots!

  • Some sense of humour failure going on here I see..

  • Good stuff, as always. Got to chuckle at the Aussies complaining about SA commentators not pronouncing Aussie names correctly... I'm pretty sure the Aussie and Kiwi commentators do that pretty much EVERY week with SA names...

  • Tana Umaga still going big at 67...now that's some achievement!

  • yo i can so much understand the highlanders N11 beating the lions prop in his face!
    The lion did nearly break his neck!
    Actually the highlander can be happy not to be in a wheelchair now or even worse ( if you can call being dead a worse thing)

    Better clip of the "headbutt". What I can't believe is that the commentators were adamant it was a red card. "Straight in on the head" etc. O'Connor looked devastated. The contact with the head looked minimal if it occurred.
    The SANZAR referee boss seemed to have numerous questions about the process between the referee and the TJ. Breakdown of communication between them in my opinion. What TJ saw was just leading with the head, and he initially said no to a red card, but at the referee's insistance he agreed to red. Definitely could have communicated things clearer.

  • ^^^^ that whole ruck looked awful... tah's player has a bulls player round the neck in a dubious "lock"...other tah's player comes in "leading with the head"..then a bulls player comes in with the shoulder into the tah's player...

  • ^^ Yep, it ain't tiddlywinks.

  • Yeah, that's called a ruck.
    Rucks are brutal, especially in the modern game.
    What O'Conner did is what almost any forward worth his salt has to do these days.
    If that's a red card offence, we need to be handing a red card at every second ruck.
    It was aterrible call, as evidenced by SANZAR dropping all charges against O'Conner. They even had a go at the ref.
