Thanks to one of the histrionic Sky Sport commentators during the Paris Sevens, I have now found this delightful euphemism for scoring a try. "Has he grassed the Gilbert," shrieked the bloke. Thought I should share this.

I heard that. Did you also here the commentator when Ollie Lindsay-Hague flicked the ball up with his foot on the run, caught it and scored? My son and I found that most amusing.
