Hideous Home Alone parody ridicules brave Owen Farrell

No one deserves this, especially not brave Owen Farrell. Korol Rugby have released a parody video in which Cheslin Kolbe cruelly torments both Farrell and All Blacks heartthrob Beaduen Barrett.

Do they know Owen Farrell is injured and would probably feel pretty depressed if he watched this?

I highly doubt it.

Anyway, it is quite well crafted and quite funny.


Meanwhile in the Sevens: The Springbok Sevens were too strong for Great Britain and won their Pool A decider 21-7 on Friday evening to finish unbeaten on the first day of the second HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series tournament in Dubai.

Their third win of the day booked the Blitzboks a date with Kenya in Saturday’s quarter-final action, which will kick off at 08h50 (SA time) in The Sevens Stadium.

On a dramatic day which saw double Olympic champions Fiji miss out on the Cup quarter-finals for only the second time in World Series history, South Africa extended their record winning streak to 21 matches.

Blitzbok coach Neil Powell said afterwards that although his side played well on attack, they somehow could not get into their full stride.

“Maybe that was due to our form of last weekend, with the teams coming out to throw everything at you,” said Powell.

Powell also pointed to some missed opportunities, such as a forward pass just before halftime against Ireland and their failure to score against Great Britain when their opponents had a man in the sin bin.

Powell was, however, encouraged by their defensive effort: “I think we really worked hard on our defensive system, although there are still some room for improvement.”

Regarding tomorrow’s quarter-final against Kenya in the knockout stages, Powell said: “An African derby will always be a physical one, so we have to make sure we make our tackles – we will have to make those one-on-ones stick.”
