    Damn All blacks, now they know how to play rugby. Although to be frank there are currently only a few very good teams: Australia, New Zealand, England and Samoa (in Rugby Sevens).

    USA football is derived from rugby, so it contains many of the same basic skills.

    I don`t want to be the one who shouts "fake", but that looks kinda viral. However, IF it`s not, HOLY COW!

    I don`t think they are all fake. A few are pre-arranged and maybe fake - no-one can reliably catch a ball if they don`t know when and where it will be, but it is possible to catch a ball you can`t see if you know where it will be and when it will be there.

    But throwing with that degree of precision from a standing position to a stationary target? Definitely. If you can do a good job of glancing around while running and dodging and while doing so throw to where a running player will be when the ball gets there, you can hit a smaller stationary target from a standing position.

    pffft these guys wish they were Tommy Bowe.

    "Also: Aussie accent rocks!"

    The accents from New Zealand, even if you don`t recognise that the fact that they say things like "As an All Black..", have a New Zealand crest on their tops, and are advertising for a site with a New Zealand web address should be a give away.

    Swiss, indeed. The Haka is truly terrifying (for those who don`t know it, traditional Maori tribal war-dance the All-Blacks do before each rugby game, and I think one of the greatest spectacles in sports). Linky here for those who haven`t seen it.

    Having said that, the Irish team did us proud on home turf by getting right up their grill when they came to play in Ireland (note: we still lost though!)

    I can`t say for sure whether these are fake or not, but there`s no reason to doubt them.

    Behind-the-back passes, catches, and kicks are all things you do while assing about before and after training. These boys probably spend more time assing about before and after training than a club rugger does actually training. If I can make these kicks and passes facing the target, they could make them facing away.

    Not a bad life, eh?

    watching again, yeah, they do appear to be faked

    which is kind of silly because I bet it would have been easier to just film each one of these stunts a dozen times each until the boys actually did hit the mark

    I disagree. I think a top rugby team would convincingly beat a top USA football team because rugby is a more fluid, continuous sport, but USA football shares the same basic skills and I think a top USA football team could train up to make a top rugby team. They`d have the strength, speed and basic skills for it, they`d just need to train for more sustained and thus more complex playing.

    The Haka is truly terrifying (for those who don`t know it, traditional Maori tribal war-dance the All-Blacks do before each rugby game, and I think one of the greatest spectacles in sports).

    Strange but true...it`s forbidden under rugby rules. One of the things most associated with rugby breaks rugby rules. There`s a special dispensation written into them for it.

    As rugby is supposed to be played in a gentlemanly manner, you`re not allowed to threaten or intimidate your opponents before the match. Since that`s the whole point of the Haka, it clearly breaks the rules.

    "american football doesnt even come close to rugby. those americans wouldnt stand a chance to the guys that play this proper sport"

    On a football field or rugby field? I`d love to know which one so I can determine the severity of your ridiculousness. An NFL team is made up of elite athletes possessing several different specialized abilities. They could train a defensive lineman to drop a few pounds and run more, or a wideout to add a few pounds and tackle. Then they would certainly stand more than a chance on a rugby field given that they already are powerful and physical. A rugby team playing on an nfl field however.....exactly which guy on your team is going to push a 6`5`` 335 pound offensive tackle out of the way, or defend the wide receiver who runs a 4.3 forty yard dash and has a 42 inch vertical jump?

    It`s apple and oranges.
