Some of the greatest amateur rugby hits and collisions of all time

I think my favourite is the one at 0:43, for the sheer distance the bloke sprints so he can smash that guy. Makes you wonder if there's some subtext involved, eg revenge hit for something earlier in the game, a-la-Lewsey v Rogers. The pass by green under pressure and his teammate's finish are also neat.

Some of the greatest amateur rugby hits and collisions of all time

I believe the point in RD's write-up was the video features professional women's rugby (and professional rugby league), despite the title stating amateur.

England get the better of France with some great tries at Twickenham

Totally agree with Reality's comment on Clark. Should never have been allowed to pull on a rugby shirt again. I don't care how wel he plays, I don't want to see him playing for England.

James Schrader's sensational try saving tackle in the opening round of the ITM Cup

So, is the commentator right in saying it should be a 22 dropout? I think he is: attacking player moved the ball over the tryline, defender grounded it.

Would be interested if anyone better-informed on the laws could clarify.

Alesana Tuilagi crunches big winger in thrilling Samoa and Fiji draw

Ha, yes! I stand by that suggestion too. Never did get a reply from World Rugby when I wrote into them, might give them a chase.

A look at the Top Three Try Saving Tackles ever, as chosen by Dewi Morris

I really should have paid proper attention to the music warning......

Knackered his shoulder in the process of that one didn't he? I was never quite sure if that happened as a result of the tackle itself or when big Matt Banaha-hanahan fell on him...

A look at the Top Three Try Saving Tackles ever, as chosen by Dewi Morris

It was a beautiful tackle by Worseley but Clerc still had a couple more England players to beat, so not sure it quite qualifies as a try-saver...

Funny part in that video clip is Gomarsall getting bulldozed by Chabal...
