The definitive "cheeky offload" courtesy of Sergio Parisse

If you're going to shock the three-time Euro champs in the Top14 semifinals you need to do something special.

Now I'm not saying that this offload from Sergio Parisse was the only reason Stade Francais got the win this evening - there were some big placekicks from Morné Steyn, good scrummaging from Heinke van der Merwe, and it has to be said Toulon were very flat for the 80 minutes.

Still, this really was something special from the mercurial Italian as he gave his team mate Raphael Lakafia an easy finish.

As an added bonus, check out this commentary from TV5's answer to Ryle Nugent as Drew Mitchell got the first try of the match back in the simpler times of the early stages when we all assumed Toulon were going to romp to an easy victory...

OK maybe it's not quite on a level with "Tommy Bowwwwwwe!" but it still makes you want to say the Aussie's name out loud as soon as you hear it.
