The video has been taken down now but that was awesome. I'm sure many people will be happy seeing that arrogant idiot getting whacked.

Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread.

What an amazing turnaround. Tale of 2 halves, the only difference being that Leinster are scarily clinical when they get on top.

Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread.

Northampton players just sitting there wondering wtf just happened.

Sean O'Brien and Jamie Heaslip are just complete animals. I'd have given MOTM to O'Brien personally.

England juniors (U21's I think) reach the World Cup Final beating France in the Semi 33-18.
We will face NZ (the holders) who beat Australia in the other semi 37-7

Eng v NZ Junior WC Final is 6pm on Sunday

p.s NZ put 90 past Wales so they must be good.

It's U20's. I imagine you will get humped. But it is NZ in a WC...

Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread.

FT ENG 22-33 NZ

Good effort from England, I expected them to cave after NZ outclassed us for the last half of the first 40 scoring a try at the death.
NZ deserved winners and the size of the guys is ridiculous.

NZ.fly-half Anscombe looks to be a great player. His kicking for goal or touch was sublime.

We may finally have an exciting attacking prospect again in Christian Wade, who scored 2 trys, that boy can run.

The game ended with a scuffle which was a shame.

NZ have never lost an U20's game

Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread.

Anyone see Munster v Northampton?

Munster win in 83rd min with an O'Gara drop goal.


Pretty epic

League news - Eng will play Aus in the final of the 4 nations having dispatched NZ tonight

Re: Rugby: Random Discussion Thread.

I was gonna start a Heineken Cup thread but remembered about this one so I guess we can talk about it here.

The 30+ phases of play followed by the O'Gara drop goal was just insane. Heineken Cup is pretty awesome.

Was great to see the stadium filled to the rafters, atmosphere looked incredible.

lol just noticed Northampton had an epic defeat to Leinster last year. Sucks to be them!

During the WC, several posters claimed league is superior to Union. Nobody has made effort to mention one of the premier league events climaxing this weekend.

Rugby League Internationals don't interest me at all. I follow mostly Super League.

meh what's the point. there'll be no intelligent discussion, if any, and i could just go read other messageboards. i'll be at the game and am looking forward to it, should be a terrific atmosphere.

weird! the intensity and standard is way higher than all but a handful of games from the entire season, so i'm not sure why it doesn't interest you. i'm not one of those crazy patriotic people but i have thoroughly throughly enjoyed the last two england games.

Yeah, Kyle Eastmond should have done the same thing IMO. You grew up playing League, at least give it a go for X number of years before jumping ship.
