Friday Funnies - Piggies vs Princesses - Force & Waratahs

Friday Funnies - Piggies vs Princesses - Force & Waratahs

In case you hadnt noticed, its Super 14 season again which means we can expect loads of great tries, big hits, fast paced rugby action, and of course, Fox Sports and their Piggies and Princesses show.

While its a bit of cheese mixed in with some humour, its a nice to see some of the top players doing something other than playing rugby as they have a crack at seeing who are the smarter species - the forwards (Piggies) or the backs (Princesses).

There's two clips for you today, one featuring the Force guys playing beach volleyball with a few obvious distractions, and the other with the Waratahs getting whipped at tennis.

For the Force we've got Tom Hockings and Andre Pretorius battling it out. Its a bit strange seeing Pretorius playing volleyball. Not only because he's 5ft nothing, but because the 31 year old is actually injured now, out for the season with a bad hamstring. He was signed as the star replacement for Matt Giteau, who moved to the Brumbies.

Pretorius is one of the most talented, yet injury-prone players around. He moved his family to Perth, and only had a one year deal there so will probably never play a game of Super 14 rugby with the guys hes trained with all pre season. Pretty sad, and hugely disappointing for him.

In the second clip (which is a little funnier if you dont have much time to watch both), Damien Fitzpatrick and Josh Holmes of the Waratahs have a go at the trivia, then face a young teenage sensation who gives them a thorough run around on the tennis court.

The clips are good to watch, and were enjoyed by some of the regulars last season so I figured Id stick them up here for you to watch if youre interested. Don't forget to submit your funny clips or moments and we'll try get them posted too.

Have a good weekend, and enjoy all the rugby.

Wow, the force were poor vs the Highlanders. There seems to be about 4 players of any worth. Good to see Dunning is still completely useless, how does he kepp getting a contract?
