Catch up with MND sufferering Bok legend Joost Van Der Westhuizen

I think it just shows how little people actually cared about ALS when they did their challenges by the lack of comments here as i think its safe to say views and comments correlate...

This said a huge amount has been raised both in awareness and money so who cares really

Prop Coenie Oosthuizen's knockout run and two tries vs the Hurricanes

had a stormer in that game, but still needs to proove himself at an international level as my lasting memory of him is numerous penalties and sin binnings when playing for the Boks

Is Carlin Isles the world's fastest rugby player?

"u can not say he does ok at the top level at all" - -Have you actually watched any of the Southern Hemisphere rugby at all or any of the SA internationals OR any of the Lions tests in the last 5 years? His stats would suggest otherwise...

As to the rest of you're ill informed comment:

Smashed? I can think of one, from Ashton. A high ball that he not only kept his eyes on taking the catch but he took the hit he knew was coming AND didnt knock it on and the ball was retained. And he was up and fine after.

Knocked out? Once! And are you seriously saying that his size made him vulnerable?? It was an elbow to the jaw from a team mate! Don't care if you're Henry Tuilagi, you're going down!

I think I speak for all when I say that you sir are Limited and useless!

~70kgs : hits like a man posessed and runs lines that could cut through butter!

Yet a bias Bulls coach wont play him for SA because the nugget that is Sideshow bob somehow holds the 15 jersey instead....madness!

If we took that approach with every new kid on the block, no one would ever get mentioned and talent would depart unnoticed like chaff in the wind rather like Rupeni your post would suggest.

And as for everyone saying, they will learn, they will shut him down, try shutting down a cheetah on redbull. I predict a riot!

But yes, still early days for him so lets continue to watch this space*

Not sure that you can object to "low IQ track stars" being fast tracked into the sport when it is happening across the board in 7's and 15's. And not only for speed, but size too! How often are guys just in teams because they are bigger and stronger? So why not fitter/faster? Like it or not the game of 7's has been about speed for a long time...yes we love the skill and finesse that comes with it and we don't want that to disappear, but speed draws the crowds and we are all youtubing for the gas merchants not the double miss-switch-crossfield kick!

If this guy was playing for your home nation propelling you up the league table would you still hold to your point?

Cant doubt that this guys has pace alright! And yes i do love the "we will sort out his defence later" quote but does it really matter in sevens when you can do this? And get lost all the trolls who are gonna moan that he would be eaten alive in 15's.....this isnt 15's its 7's!

Faster than Habana? Chavhanga? ngwenya ? Norton?

Three red cards in heated Leicester Tigers vs Bath battle at Welford Road

This raises the question of whether the TMO watches the game live? or just sits there twiddling his fingers waiting for the call, which may/may never come? He must be lonely, and bloodey good at Sudoku's!

Because if he IS watching the game then his decision will undoubtedly be influenced by a number of factors that could work for/against teams. And I feel that removes the objectivity that should come from all TMO's. Not to mention the pressure of making quick calls what with the TMO being used more and more and managers, players and spectators wanting fast flowing matches leading to rash calls. I'd rather be an Air Traffic controller myself, less stressful.
