Massive schoolboy hit from new Edinburgh signing Nasi Manu in 2006

Mate, we're going to have to find a rickety wooden bridge for you to hide under if you going to carry on trolling away like this.

If it was a trysaver I'd maybe understand, but this tackle, OK it's quite spectacular but it's actually pretty average, number 8 on a wing who was basically a sitting duck - in his own half.

Happy to let it go for a teenager, but any adult doing that is a total dick.

*This* is how you celebrate a massive try-saving tackle:

Throwback Thursday - Rupeni Caucaunibuca hat-trick vs the Crusaders in 2004

One of the links shows Caucau helping Agen to a 33-0 win over Toulon........

Eight years ago, but that's still a meteoric rise for Toulon since then.

Massive fan of Caucau.... in case it's not obvious from my profile pic ;)

Just wish the silly fat bastard had stuck at it - the rugby universe is incomplete without several years worth of amazing Caucau moments that should have happened but didn't.

Massive schoolboy hit from new Edinburgh signing Nasi Manu in 2006

Not only that but a winger with absolutely nowhere to go, as his inside path is blocked by headguardman and he's only got a foot between himself and the touchline.

For some reason I've never heard of the bloke, but hopefully he grew out of that sort of nonsense and we can put it down to teenage exuberance.

The Shortball highlights wrap from Round 8 of Super Rugby

There seems to be a hell of a lot of violence being dished out in Super Rugby so far this season.......

The Fearless Warrior of Irish mythology, Paul O'Connell

Very good, and interesting to see all that footage of him with hair.

Still, nowhere near as good as the "day in the life of Paul O'Connell" though!

Max, would you like some salt or ketchup for that massive chip on your shoulder? :)

Just noticed Bosch at 1:33, clearly thinking "hang on, if I knock this kick over I'll probably get my picture on Rugbydump - better sort the hair out!"

Agree with you Larry. Very boring and negative period of play and I was delighted to see it blow up in their boring faces. This was the rugby equivalent of a football team pissing about by the corner flag "protecting their lead" for the last five minutes of a game.

Don't know if it was a deliberate play by Saracens but they showed a neat way to deal with that approach- simply pull out of the ruck situation- the attacking players meeting no resistance are bound to go off their feet as nothing to push against.
