Fantastic  flick to hand. I believe it was a combination of skill and luck that made that happen. Super 15 is about start tho a much better comp IMO :)

Stantz: Oh look.

Plus the players are expected to play the whole match, no swapping over to another team whenever the ball is won or lost.

I was more impressed by the prop who blocked a kick and caught the block out of the air.

That and they don't biatch and whine when they get hit.

/want NFL to learn to tackle? let them play without pads for a while. They'll stop trying to use their heads as battering rams

When I clicked on the link I was expecting a proper Gaelic football backheel flick. When I saw one of the teams was Ireland I was super expecting a Gaelic football backheel flick.


That was not a backheel flick.


Skill wise, that was pretty meh. What did impress me is his balls [stupidity?] for doing it with the defence in such proximity. He was fair dinkum setting himself up to get creamed.

What...what is this sport? I..I like it! There was no stopped plays.. the ball kept going sack after sack. Feet, hands, it was all fair game.. and they weren't trying to KILL each other!

I understand that rugby and my beloved football (not that soccer sport that would be a pretender to the throne) are related in some fashion, but I just can't see it.

Yeah this shiat is gaelic football and its awesome.

What we have in american is roman football and its superior.

Ask a Gall. Oh never mind you can't because Caeser murdered them all to pay his debts.

"multiple third party notifications"


uhm.   that's odd, so "chucky842938948923" can report ANY video for copyright violation even if he isn't involved?

Wasn't Google supposed to be running youtube?

Well there's about a 100 years of difference between them, so the similarities are about the same as you would see between your self and your 5th or 6th cousins.
