Friday Funnies - The George Robson tunnel slip

Title holders Harlequins slipped out of the Amlin Challenge Cup last weekend as Toulon beat them 37-8 at the Stade Felix Mayol. The signs were ominous for the visitors from the moment they stepped out of the changeroom.

Toulon are through to the semi finals following a convincing display in front of their always vocal home crowd. Jonny Wilkinson grabbed 17 points, despite being replaced early in the second half.

They scored tries through Sebastien Tillous Borde, Benjamin Lapeyre, and another Englishman, Steffon Armitage. You can view highlights of the game here (or click the related post).

Harlequins were missing star players Nick Evans and Chris Robshaw, so in the latters absence, big lock George Robson stepped up and captained the side.

Things didn't start out too well for him though, as you'll see in the following clip. The reaction of the players around him is great, and fair play to Robson himself, who had a little grin about it.

Below is the clip of Robson, so follow the link below it if you're after the match highlights

Sort of set the tone for the rest of the evening ;)

Took it well though, except for Lowe and DC trying not to p*ss themselves laughing at the end!!

That Irish (/Ulsterman?) commentator is fucking awesome, always makes me laugh. Perfect example here, saving the day while his mealy-mouthed co-commentator struggles to get out his contrived Napoleon reference.

"Napoleon Bonaparte, not playing tonight, apparently he's got a shoulder injury" - Classic!!
