The Rugby Club Plays of the Week - Can you believe it

The Rugby Club Plays of the Week - Can you believe it

Before we get to this weekends action, its time to catch up on what happened last week around the southern hemisphere as this edition of the Plays of the Week features a bit of dirty play, some dodgy mascots, and a few outstanding tries.

As they say, seven days is a long time in rugby and while this weekend there was a break in the Tri Nations, for many the Tony Woodcock unpunished charge on Saia Faingaa is still fresh on the mind. We get to see Richard Loe at his best in the late eighties too.

On a positive note, the ITM Cup produced a few late wins and other interesting bits in another entertaining round. Make sure you check out the sensational try by Bay of Plenty eighthman, and captain, Colin Bourke. I'll post the full video on the RD Facebook page if you'd like to see it with replays etc.

There's a nice mention for retiring Australian legend, and bowel cancer survivor, Ray Price, who played rugby at the highest level in both Union and League. He played for the Wallabies eight times before making the switch to league in the late seventies.

With so much great rugby on the way, it's not going to be easy to keep up. RD needs your help! If you see something you think should be shared, please make a note of it, including time and match details, then fire off an email.

Alternatively if you're able to record, edit, and upload, that's even better. Either way, Rugbydump is driven by community interaction so please don't be shy to get involved. Send an email here , or use the handy contact form . Cheers, and enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Not 'domestic' as such. They are referring to the Brisbane and Sydney premier comps. Unfortunatly there isn't anything in between these club comps and Super15.
