Amazing end-to-end passage of play results in try for Suburbs vs Grammar-Carlton

Love the tackles at 0:50 and 1:41. Inspiring stuff from the Kiwis, as usual.

Huge hit by New Zealand Women's Sevens star Linda Itunu

Ouch. I'm impressed she popped up so quickly after the hit, though! Well done, ladies.

Friday Funnies - Possibly the best scrum celebration ever

Reminds me of the ABs celebrating after they won a scrum against Australia in the WC semis last year. Brad Thorn and Jerome Kaino acted like they'd just won the game, haha.

And why not? Plenty of points are only kicked thanks to forwards winning penalties from a good scrum.

Chris Hala'ufia suspended for five weeks after straight red card

Looks like an honest mistake to me. Don't think a card is inappropriate - players need incentives to try their best not to make honest mistakes that injure others. But a card shouldn't have to mean he's a terrible person (the guy showed great sportsmanship), so I'm glad they dropped the ban.

Henry Tuilagi swats Zee Ngwenya away with big fend in Top 14

Haha, the second player is hilarious. Ngwenya did a better job from the ground than he did on his feet. Can't say I'd want to get in front of Henry, but if you're going to play international pro rugby, you gotta do better than that...

Shortlist for IRPA Try of the Year 2012 announced

I'm with curates: there have to have been better tries this year. The Gear one is a very well executed play, but the others are just good solo efforts like the type we sort of expect from guys like Savea and Habana.

Maybe the panel explains this list? I think 2 wingers, a fullback, and a center, all known for moments of magic like these.

Scotland vs Springboks Highlights - November 2012

Ha! "He went high." "Yeah, you can't do that, Clancy..."

Great to see babyface Strauss scoring some tries, too. Fun game to watch all around.

Honey Badger Nick Cummins smashes Nick Reily in the Shute Shield

Agreed. He works hard for Western Force, so it's good to see him get some attention. Credit where it's due and best of luck to him!

Toulon go one point clear at the top of the table with thumping of Bordeaux

Agreed; bad night for the Bordeaux #14. The faceplant at 2:56 is pretty classic, though.

USA Eagles have two players red carded in loss to Italy in Houston

Pity about the two red cards, though I'm no expert so can't say whether they're too harsh or not.

What I CAN do is echo the others in this thread who are excited to see the sport growing in the U.S. Love to see international rugby in the States, and I hope the crowds keep getting bigger!

A win from the Eagles eventually would be nice, too. Baby steps : ).
