If that wasn’t enough, once Papa Harinordoquy [...]
Rugby is a confusing sport, so let these very attractive young women illustrate the rules for you…IN LINGERIE!
If rugby doesn’t interest you but hot chicks do, then just watch this clip. These “experts” that are wearing next to nothing scrum, ruck, and tackle one another all in an effort to teach you about the sport they love. Lingerie rugby has just become my favorite sport!

My wife's uncle, who lives in Australia, once joked "the stork must have been confused and dropped you off in America rather than England." I'm 100% American, so much so that if you try to put Swiss on my hamburger rather than American cheese, I will throw a fit. That being said, my two favorite sports are soccer (I'm American, it'...
How’s the air up there mate?
Check out this leaping hanger made by Melbourne Demons rugby player Jeremy Howe. Howe appears to jump onto the shoulders of his opponent while attempting to corral the free ball. Sadly this would be the lone highlight for the Demons, as they would go on to lose to the Sydney Swans 138-37!

FEATS OF STRENGTH
Rugby players are hulking men who are some of the toughest S.O.B.s on the planet because the game itself is a rough and tumble affair with players wearing not a stitch of protective clothing. Plus it has guys like Tendai “Beast” Mtawarira, a Zimbabwean-born rugby union player for the Sharks of the Super Rugby league playing in it, and as you’re about to see, Mtawarira lives...

Earlier this week at a Premiership Rugby match in Ireland between Quins and Saracens, a man was hit in the head as the ball went into the stands. To make matters worse, the man was coming out of the tunnel carrying two fresh beers, which presumably he had just purchased, and dropped both of them.
The man appeared to be OK and had a really big laugh at his own expense.

The organizers of the Las Vegas Rugby Sevens had planned a grand entrance for the game ball for the first place match between New Zealand and South Africa. The had planned on having a parachutist fly into the Sam Boyd Stadium with the game ball. Wouldn't expect anything grander for a rugby match in Las Vegas.
One problem though. He landed on the field during the third place...
IT'S RAINING MEN
You know the old saying, "What Happens in Las Vegas, Stays in Las Vegas?" Well, one wayward skydiver wishes that was the case as he accidentally mistimed his landing at a Rugby Sevens World Series game in Las Vegas.

BUTT OF THE JOKE
A streaker stole the show at a pre-season rugby match in New Zealand over the weekend between the Vodafone Warriors and the NRMA Insurance Broncos. The speedy streaker took off and had a decent run going until Warriors strength and conditioning coach (and former player) Ruben Wiki tackled him from behind. How soon after making the tackle did Ruben Wiki regret his decision? Was it...

St. Kilda's Dylan Roberton had just been destroyed during an Aussie Rules Football match, and his halftime interview was understandably hilarious.
Here’s a video clip from the Northampton – Bedford friendly rugby match in England last weekend. That freight train of pain comes via the 6’5″, 260-pound Courtney Lawes of Northampton. The poor guy on the receiving end was 6’1″, 191-pound Mike Le Bourgeois of Bedford. Looks like Le Bourgeois might be sipping his meals through straws for the next couple weeks. Absolutely...
