After last week’s post about topless rugby, I remembered seeing a clip on YouTube showing Sonny Bill Williams replacing a torn shirt. I couldn’t find the original clip but I did find a slo mo version of it. Sadly no-one’s ever posted a clip of Jamie Heaslip replacing his torn shirt during an Ireland game a couple of years ago. Thankfully, it’s indelibly ingrained on my memory! On a side note, the only aspect of Sky’s coverage of the Lions tour to Australia I thoroughly enjoyed was the changing room camera after the match. It almost made up for the execrable commentary. Battering the Aussies in the 3rd test was just magical, but seeing Alex Corbisiero wandering around the changing room clad in only a pair of black budgie smugglers came a close second.

Anyway, Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the delicious spectacle of Sonny Bill Williams changing his shirt. No drooling over your keyboards, please.

I love rugby. I love the tries, the collisions and those phases of play where the ball floats effortlessly from one pair of hands to another, across the full width of the pitch as 15 men stampede towards the opposition. The fact that you have 30 fit (in every sense of the word) men running around in tight shirts and shorts for 80 minutes is an added bonus. And it just got better. I think topless rugby should be the new norm.
