The Rugby Club Plays of the Season for Super Rugby 2011

The Rugby Club Plays of the Season for Super Rugby 2011

Australian rugby was on a massive high following the Queensland Reds success in Super Rugby, and despite that coming to a crashing halt this weekend with the Wallabies loss to Samoa , there was plenty to enjoy throughout the season.

The Rugby Club is of course an Australian show, so there's always a slight Aussie bias, but that doesn't mean that there wasn't a whole lot to enjoy for Kiwi and South African fans, as throughout the season all sides contributed to a fascinating tournament.

The best tries, biggest hits, and craziest moments were nicely spread across the three nations, although when it comes to celebrations, there was one side who stole the show. Yep, the Reds.

When Digby Ioane did his break dancing routine and Quade Cooper followed up the next week with a backflip, it seemed as though things were going to get out of control. Thankfully, they didn't, although it was good fun at the time. Rene Ranger deserves a special mention too.

All in all, it was another enjoyable season with some great rugby on show and despite many injuries, it was a nice chance for many players to stake a claim for World Cup places.

Big thanks to Sean Maloney for the compilation, and here's looking forward to a brilliant Tri Nations over the next few weeks which will no doubt serve up the same, if not better, standard of attacking rugby, bruising tackling, and of course, a little bit of razzle dazzle. Enjoy.

enjoyable as ever thou i wish they didn't use that shaky cam style when showing a big hit as the hit is far harder to actually see clearly!

The best bit is that horse/donkey mascot walking off injured (not that I want to make fun of his injury but the video did get me laughing out loud).

Who's the poor cheerleader 'flashing' with the blue underwear? She is far hotter than any of their choices.

"Australia are the best team in the world. lol. Fuck the IRB ratings"

But you actually have to win games to be the best. Samoa anyone?
