The Top 5 Finals Moments of All Time

first_imgWednesday Aug 7, 2013 The Top 5 Finals Moments of All Time Following a great Super Rugby final at the weekend, here is a look at five other big games and the moments that made them memorable. Featuring clips from not just the final itself, Sean Maloney and co. have put together a great collection of footage.Starting with a game that was remembered – or forgotten about – for all the wrong reasons, the 2006 Super 14 final was played in horrendous conditions. Fans couldn’t see what was going on when watching on TV, and it’s safe to say visibility wasn’t all that great out there either.In 2009 we featured the Heineken Cup penalty shootout, a first for the sport at such a level. It was filled with drama, intrigue an disappointment as Martyn Williams missed a kick for Cardiff Blues, and Jordan Crane slotted his. Bizarre.A year later in Durban bees caused chaos on the Currie Cup semi final, with the kickoff being delayed for 40 minutes, until they could get rid of them. The referee was stung, as were a few innocent bystanders, but eventually play got under way and the Sharks progressed to the final In 1999 France famously beat New Zealand in the World Cup Semi Final, but by the time they got to the final they were no match for the Wallabies, who easily won, scoring a nice try through big Owen Finnegan in the process. The 1995 Rugby World Cup final goes down as one of the greatest ever, for more than just rugby reasons. A country was united after a troubled past, and the Springboks beat the almighty All Blacks, who had the seemingly unstoppable Jonah Lomu in their ranks. Nelson Mandela and Francois Pienaar together will live long as one of the greatest moments in not just rugby, but sport. Can you think of any other great finals moments that could have also been slotted in to this video?ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Top 5 compilations Related Articles 240 WEEKS AGO The Top 5 Biggest Hits of the Year 242 WEEKS AGO The Top 5 BLOOPERS of the Year! 244 WEEKS AGO Powerful Top 5 ‘Tongan Thor’ moments From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
