Perfectly executed back heel kick 100m try goes viral

Well said Dan. Welcome N&I..... :/ Maybe he is a new and improved version of NZphill...

You do make a valid point NI, but I think each reply has sort of quashed your further points. Gonzoman finished off my point nicely.

Hope you stick around and get stuck in....tbh, you've turned this entire comment section into aassive laugh, whereas it may normally just be a bunch of "nicely done" sort of comments! So good on ya!

Perfectly executed back heel kick 100m try goes viral

You've raised some questions, but with regards to the latest post:
"Do you not lose possession when kick"

Technically speaking I suppose you are correct.

Lost possession went forward...

Not really, you can only 'knock on' if the ball leaves your hands or touches your hands and moves forwards? Yes?

So the ball left his hands going backwards and a body part "knocked it forward" (if you don't recognise it as a kick)...therefore technically speaking, there is nothing to answer for....

If I pass the ball to a team mate (backwards) and it bounces off their face and goes 20 metres towards the oppo try line, I don't believe that is classed as a knock on, so really there isn't much difference?

(Of course I may be wrong. I don't pass the ball so I wouldn't really know)

England break their Springboks hoodoo with convincing win at Twickenham

This is where I'd insert some sort of 'won't be too long before your next trip then' kind of joke, but England are actually doing pretty well.

I do like the way Eddie Jones is still pretty nonchalant about the whole thing, rating Englands performance at just above average... It has an air of arrogance about it - "beat you even though we were average" but by the same token he is more focussed on his own lot than the opposition. Definitely an inspiring coach.

I wonder how long he'll be with England, where he will go next etc?

I'm guessing that the team in black had either won by a margin or had lost by one as they appeared to firstly be sort of stunned but secondly not appear to give two hoots about chasing this.

I shan't be showing this to anyone due to the fact that it may cause other to try and emulate it... Which is fine in itself as long as they agree to lie in the 'tunnel' at the end of the game and have both teams walk over them should it fail....

Wales edge Argentina for confidence building win

I think we're sadly well on the way to that judging by the UK news. England players getting something like £20k a match, someone suggesting top players should earn £1mil a year...

Don't get me wrong, it's a hard game and you have a limited career at the top, there are also not enough coaching jobs for everyone etc, but that money is a tad excessive and I believe it could start to breed an attitude of "so what I'm rich!" Rather than currently (some) players are doing very well for themselves, but they still require an amount of grace and appeal.

I'd be more accepting of a £20k bonus for a tournament well played or something that may also drive a little incentive...

When I think of the massive sports in this world, soccer, NFL (American but huge), basketball, all these sports have issues with petulant prima donnas whining about the service they assume they should receive... Rugby is still ever so slightly lower down where players are 'just lads', I'd hate for that to change much more than it already has...

England break their Springboks hoodoo with convincing win at Twickenham

I agree with both sentiments above, what grabs me more however is the injury side of things....

Perhaps in the pro game it's not thought about, perhaps they come off the field, reassess and see what's on, or who made it unscathed etc... But it would be a bit heart breaking to see someone get damaged in a freak injury when the game is clearly done and dusted...

But I agree, with the AB comparison, after the kick they'd run that ball right back at the opposition, smashing doors and heads as they pass...
