Best on-field rugby highlights?

My Super Rugby debut at Carisbrook between Highlanders v Sharks. It was a nail biting encounter, with the Highlanders nearly pulling off the upset of the year. Sharks came away with the win, 19 - 17. 

In that same debut I stepped backwards onto a player and ended up base over apex... then gave him the filthiest look like it was his fault. I apologised to him later over  a beer.
