Heres a quick clip for you as the week comes to an end and we start what should be a huge weekend of rugby in the Heineken Cup, Super 14, European Challenge Cup, and Asian Five Nations. This clip comes from the latter.
The tournament kicked off last weekend, with hosts Hong Kong beating South Korea 32-8 to jump six positions on the IRB world rankings, boosting their hopes of qualifying for their first ever Rugby World Cup place.
They play Bahrain today and if they come out on top, will climb another three places up to 30th in the world, which translates to a nine-spot progression in the space of a fortnight.
Tries were scored by Nigel Clarke, Keith Robertson, and Tom McQueen as they went on to pick up an impressive victory that holds them in good stead going into this weekend.
Young flyhalf Robertson notched up a personal tally of 14 points, scoring a try and kicking his points, but also flying over a defender with this flip out of the tackle.
He mentioned Rugbydump in a post match interview when talking about the crazy flip move, so I thought it would be cool to share it on here.
Thanks to the RugbyAsia Channel for the footage, and to Keith for keeping Rugbydump on the map globally. You can keep up to date with the tournament here.
