NRL Mic'd up - Rugby League up close

Few vids of some NRL plyers mic'd during the game. Great insight into what happens on a Rugby League field.

First up, NSW Captain Paul Gallen. 5'11 230 lb forward. Not the biggest but plays hard.
In this vid you get an example at 4:45 of the perfect Rugby League tackle and why us Rugby League fans don't always worry about the shoulder charge as being effective. Or why we dont think Hayne will worry about 300lb players hitting him. Here about 600 lbs + drive him in the ribs and flip him on the back pretty quickly. Multiply that by his average 24 'hitups' a game and you get the picture. Also he averages 35 tackles a game. So Rugby League players take some punishment over 80 mins. Why we love it.




Jonathan Thurston. One of if not the best player in the game. Similar I guess to a QB in directing play. Champion bloke. Always thinking of the fans even during the game. Especially the kids.




Tim Mannah from the Parramatta Eels with some glimpses also of a certain Mr Hayne.




Willie Mason. What can you say about this one?

They are actually not mic'ed up, its the ref who's mic'ed up and whenever a player is in contact with the official you can hear the conversation.
Should put these vids in the Hayne thread to give the USA guys an appreciation of the sport Hayne came from.

Just say something like "Hayne was mic'd up for last weeks game. Now here's some dudes mic'd up from the sport Hayne came from
