    If it doesn't open the video, you need to look for a video post on 13th November. On the last play of the game, the FH? behind his own line blackheels the ball over the opposition, regathers, and rounds the FB to score under the posts. I think as well as showcasing a great piece of skill (and luck, obviously) the clip highlights for me why the hackneyed old argument about registered player numbers that is perennially used to underscore English rugby's underacheivement is based on a flawed premise that they're all of a certain standard: whereas in truth, a sizeable percentage of the billions of players registered with the RFU are like the No.11 who waddles into view at the end of the clip. Nuff said.



  • It really was a peach of a try.



  • @Hooroo Definitely worth waiting 15 years for that to come off



  • when I watched that I thought it looked like a set up, which I know it probably isn't, but so many of the defenders did nothing at all, but I guess when you look at it form DTW's perspective about the relative quality, then it makes sense....



  • It would be the last thing you would expect too, that type of chip



  • @Disgusted-of-TW Saw that on Facebook earlier. Great bit of skill that bamboozled the opposition. I've done that myself at training but never had the chutzpah to attempt it in a game.



  • @antipodean I think what I enjoyed most about the clip was it reminded me of all the various games I played towards the twilight of my shelflife, where we'd be scrabbling around trying to get 15 men on the crappy 3rds' pitch, having driven to said crappy pitch across miles of wet East Midlands Saturday (crammed into an eclectic selection of builder's vans and salesman's Mondeos, with borrowed boots and/or damp smelly shirts), there to do battle with an equivalent rabble, in matches that ranged from the sublime to the ridiculous. Ah, good times.

    always followed by copious amounts of beer.

    And lies. The lies are important.



  • All you need to know about the level si that the Blue 11 looks like he could pack down in the front row.

    Still quality though - everyone looked knackered!

    That number 11 was positively Fijian like in his lack of effort there.. ....

    Shit, is that racist to say that?

    despite being very fat and pasty of course. Phew.



  • Pfffft Tons Fili used to bust that shit out all the time!



  • This is scored against my club's vets side, please be kind!
