About the video clips

This video

This video contains a range of different clips about rugby.

Videos on other pages concentrate on particular parts of the game.

Look, learn and enjoy.

Here's a bit about the clips on this video...

Great fast pass

Fullback Ben Volavola for Southern Districts gets away a superb swift pass. Notice in the slowmo how he takes only half a step prior to the pass.

Flick for a try

From 10 metres out number 6 blindside flanker Timani battles his way to within a metre of a try. Unable to make the line he releases a great flick pass.

Australian winger Nick Cummins catches the pass and scores in the corner with a spectacular leap.

Cut out pass

Often cut out passes are made with little or no benefit. Not so here! An expertly performed cut out sees the wrong man tackled.

Right winger Nick Cummins made the pass. What was he doing there? You don't have to stay on your wing. You can get involved!

Watch how he tracks the left winger all the way down the left touchline!

Great result, a huge gain in ground - almost created a try!

Unusual things happen

In this clip a player is driven off the field and head first into nearby wooden fencing. This shows how important the 5 metre perimeter area is for player safety!

Neat pass along

Sometimes the best thing you can do with the ball is to give it to another player...FAST! This is a great example. Notice how the player turns as he passes - good for accuracy and for protection.

Putting passes together

Sydney Uni show how to move the ball to a less well defended area of the field. A good pass from the scrumhalf, a cut out pass, two swift 'relay' passes and another cut out. It doesn't get much better than this!

Forwards grubber too

Australian flanker Scott Fardy shows he has kicking skills when he finds touch with a long bouncing grubber kick.

A little bit of EvtecHs

Harmless tip-toes forward towards the defender followed by a vicious change in direction. Serve up something unexpected with EvtecHs.
