Cornal Hendricks and Richie McCaw tries from great All Blacks vs Springboks Test

I have mixed views on Hougaard. He seems to have every attribute to be a good scrum half, but somehow isn't. It might be time for South Africa to cap Kockott before Saint-Andre gets there first.

Ben Tameifuna cited for big shove on referee Glen Jackson

As for Tameifuna, he's obviously acted like scum. Totally unnecessary to the defensive cause.

As for the attackers, instead of aiming for the try line they could have aimed for the base of the post. Can't see any way the would have been stopped.

New Zealand complete series whitewash as Savea gets hat-trick vs England

Agree with most of that although I wouldn't write off Goode. Without a doubt the most over-criticsed England player going. Missed one tackle on Hogg two years ago and that's all people remember him for. Should be a centre anyway.

Australia complete clean sweep against France with Sydney win

France's inconsistency is down to the coach not the players. If faith were to be shown to their best players week in week out they'd be world beaters every game. How can a player be psychologically motivated in the current French setup? Great for an England fan, a terrible shame for the game of rugby.

New Zealand win England series 2-0 with victory in Dunedin

Farrell at 12 is interesting although perhaps not terribly inspiring.

Personally whenever I've seen Alex Goode he plays as if he's an inside centre with 15 on his back. I'm almost certain it will never happen, but why not put him next to Manu in the midfield. He has all the attributes and all the skills and will naturally slip into that role even when he's playing full back. I'm really trying to find any reason as to why he wouldn't be a success at 12 but I can't find a single one! If Goode's not a 12 then I'll be damned.

Usually I'd be the first to criticise Twelvetrees and yes, he was poor. But Burrell was far worse. I'm not sure why everyone's harnessing their criticism against Billy when the bloke stood next to him didn't make a tackle all game.

New Zealand snatch victory in the dying minutes after strong England showing

I'm a huge fan of Foden and one of his biggest advocates, but l would really love to see how Pennell takes to international rugby. The stuff he's managed to do with a truly terrible Worcester team around him merit an international opportunity.

There's a great tribute to him here:
