    Mate, you would not believe how many times I've watched this video over the years.
    Although the game as a whole was very dull, the last 5 minutes were amazing and to be there after Hook converted was absolutely incredible.
    Everyone went mad. :D :D :D

    Of course! I've been a season ticket holder for the last 5 years! It's one of my favourite rugby memories. :)

    Urm, yeah it was October 2006 and Hook was 21. It was his first European game after winning his first caps for Wales on the summer tour of Argentina. We had a couple of cracking games in that pool that year. Search 'More Ospreys Magic' for a similarly scored try v Stade Francais. That was a belter too - we were 19-3 down with 20 to go, then pulled ourselves out of the fire to lead 22-19 in the fourth minute of injury time, only to concede a 55m penalty from Lionel Beauxis to save the game.
    We were desperately unlucky that year and became the first team to gain 20 points and win 4 out of 6 pool games and not qualify for the quarter finals. :(
    Here endeth the history lesson. :p

    HAHA thanks for the history lesson CyRil , probably never crossed Hook's mind then that he would throw an intercept pass to JDV 2 years later :D .

    But yeah he did show balls to put that kick over, hell that Shane Williams is like a little energizer bunny :D

    Quins vs Stade

    I think that is quite the ending to a rugby match, happened this year. 28 phases in the mud Nick Evans gets away from a few tacklers, good stuff :bravo:

    Nice find Toxic. I didn't see that game but I've always had a soft spot for Quins so that was a good watch.
