sorry lads..
But this trivia questionhas been driving me crazy.


Can someone tell me when was that try scored by tipoki when fed a short pass from mafi, who had just raced onto a nice inside ball from ROG?

I believe it was the opening h cup pool game from 2007/8 season. Was it wasps? There used to bea link for it on youtube, but can't find it... or was it v clermont 2006?

Maybe with some go forward ball this year we might see some
of Mafi's sparkle again.

Well worth re-living.. Not sure if it's 'that time of the year' or what, but I find this video inspiring and even emotional. What a pity it's not in better quality. Might look into buying the DVD of the season (I presume it exists)...


Most of all though, the influence of R Tipoki is evident in these clips. What a player. My favorite kind of centre.. You can have your JdVs and t halsteads,... It's the smart guys like tipoki who make rugby worth watching. The kind of rugby you dream of playing.


Here's to seeing his like again someday.. maybe a home grown player to boot. Maybe sitting in a classroom right now somewhere.. dreaming about offloads.. as you do

Don't lose the run of yourself and go picking on Trevor Halsted!!! He was a very clever player and he contributed more than we ever expected him to, when we won the ERC in 2006. In short he's a ligind! smileys/wink.gif

The home pool game against Clermont - we beat them off the park and Reggie got pissed off with the slagging he took from the terraces and gave the motm award to Joubert.

anyone have a clip of Reggie pitch side before the game - can't find it on youtube.

so much skill and panache in that vid. foleys flyover pass to horan on the wing.
Can we really do this kind of stuff again?
i still cannot fathom how mafi get's the pass from rog from right hand to left hand in time to give cipriani an anvil like hand off.. just can't understand that .. or his accelaration.

I've always like mafi above the other NIQ players, because he's given up his rep career to be here. That tackle on peel defies my idea that you cannot buy passion.
what a player.

Shame about the quality and those WMG f**kers pulling the original music.

Alas, so much of that came from Strings taking the ball at the back of the ruck and moving it instantly, before his onset of "hmm, what will I do with this one" or " c'mon lads, get in a straight line there".
Reckon he should be shown some of these videos.
