Rugby World Cup 2015 advert featuring rousing team talk from Charles Dance

Am I really going to be the first person to say this is terrible??

God I hate stuff like this. All that "people from Newcastle, Brighton, Southend, etc" reminded me of Nick Clegg in the last general election debates, desperately trying to include everyone. The real lowlight here was the bit with the bloke from Milton Keynes, poor bar steward.

This kind of speech has never done anything for me in real life either though. Maybe there's something wrong with me.

The Top 5 Tries of the Week - August 22nd weekend

#1 Wonderful execution, skill and pace, but for me #2 is the best - love that. Proper kick chase, bloke smashed legally into touch and to have three blokes ready and willing to pounce is first class.

All Blacks post match reaction after stunning Bledisloe Cup victory

Is that twice in the last month Offside Rich has actually been yellow carded??
Has he finally lost his magic invisibility cloak??

Top bloke though, the chat is almost what you'd expect from the Old Gittians Vets captain after a charity match.

Huge tackle on Wisconsin Rugby Club player after inside switch

Bosh. Love that and fair play to the bloke for volunteering the footage!

Not sure about the "great read" though - he'd have been licking his lips in anticipation the switch was so well telegraphed, (yes I know it's amateur rugby, but still).

Magali Harvey scores Try of the Tournament contender vs France

Cracking try. Almost a Robinsonesque side-step at full tilt. Awesome.

England win the Women's Rugby World Cup with victory over Canada

God knows what kind of cretin use the first 20% of a 5-minute clip to show dreadful singing and someone lining up a kick and still have time to include five seconds of the kicker trotting back to her half. All with no context whatsoever to understand the actual RUGBY that was being played that led to the penalty being awarded.

What I can't understand is how the people that own the rights to these things fail so miserably to understand the game of rugby and what actually should be defined as a "highlight".

Note to RugbyDump - you need to introduce a "dislike" function for comments like WelshOsprey's. Sorry if I sound dull but I find this type of comment bloody boring. Not offensive, just dull. From a funny bloke as well.

The Top 5 Best Haka Responses ever!

Good fun as always but I have some issues with the list.

I watched the countdown simply assuming that Richard Cockerill's confrontation with Norm Hewitt would of course be #1 - no question. To not even make the list is bizarre...

Other notable omissions as others have pointed out - Chabal showing how he would eat the ABs for his dinner in 2007; Campese treating the whole thing with contempt in 1991 and the Tonga sipi tau in 2011.

#3 is the most pathetic thing I've ever seen in the game of rugby. I thought at the time this could be the end of the Haka in Rugby, as the degree of preciousness had clearly gone off the scale.

The Top 5 Worst Celebrations in Rugby history

No, they're not precious about stuff like that, it's just one of the many awesome things about the show. They had the Scotland celebration in another top 5 recently. In fact that's probably more likely the reason for not including again.

As for the Waratahs - well it looked like the worst ever iteration of the specialist Japanese adult entertainment, (you know what I mean, first syllable making someone jump, 2nd/3rd syllables former Brazil footballer). But unfortunately in this case it looked like the actors had already performed once or twice already that day...

Anyway, *not* a pleasant image!

The Top 5 Worst Celebrations in Rugby history

Heineken sponsor/ed the whatever-it's-called-now Cup but they don't make the winners pour lager over each other.

VW sponsor Toulon but I don't remember them trying to drink their champagne out of a car.
