    Wasn't sure whether to post this here, in Other Sports, or Off the Beaten Track, but please feel free to move this

    That's interesting. Lifting to catch the ball. It ends up a lot like the lift in Pechalat and Bourzat's Mummy free dance in 2011-2012.

    Yes, it does look kind of like P/B's lift that they've done for years. Except Bourzat doesn't just stand around on both feet - take that, rugby players!

    OTOH, Pechalat weighs less than a rugby player, and they don't have a bunch of people rushing at them. So I guess it evens out

    Impressive. Lifts are of course common in lineouts but that kind of lift is very unusual, I've never seen anything like it!

    I did like how he attempted to put him down in a gentlemanly way. However it's a bit tricky when a probably 700kg+ opposition pack is bearing down on you.
