All Blacks snatch victory at the death in thrilling Brisbane Test

How about Dane Cole's try? Really didn't expect that kind of step and pace from the big guy.

Jebb Sinclair controversially red carded for 'leading with the elbow'

So you're saying it's OK to get this one totally wrong since Scotland has, in your opinion, "been on the wrong end of ref decisions in the past"?

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

"Not to take any credit away from nz"

I think you just did. You say Mealamu tried to kill the ball on the Brown "try", yet the ball was out, which is why he thought he was entitled to play it. But the ref told the ABs to stop. They are all looking incredulously at the ref (which I found kind of funny). Then the England player on the ground pulled it back?

I didn't see the whole match, so can only comment on the highlights here. You say NZ got the rub of the forward pass calls, but it really sounds like sour grapes.

Oh, and would have liked to see the yellow card infraction.

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

Yes, I couldn't watch the match, but read all about Ben Smith's tackle on Tuilagi, but it's not in the highlights! A number of commentators said that was a key inflection point for the match, so I'll have to look for it elsewhere.

I have the same issue, always click on the "YouTube" logo to watch at the full site, then come back here for the comments. Or just use FF or PaleMoon.

The Best Tries scored in Round 6 of Super Rugby 2014

I rather enjoyed these, but the last one was a clunker. Not sure how that's one of the best scored this week. Determined running, I guess, but he didn't exactly make anyone miss and no passes.

I keep hearing the children's song: "One of these things is not like the others..." :-)

WIN a signed copy of All Black captain Richie McCaw's autobiography

Saw what you like about playing on the edge of the law, but Richie is one of the greatest ever. Every side would love to have him and it's amazing how well he has withstood the demands of such a punishing position.

The three qualities I think of in RM:

1. Leadership - The ABs, Crusaders, and Canterbury give their all for this guy, and he earns that respect by his effort.
2. Humility/Respect - I'm glad this was mentioned by others. He has a genuine respect for his mates and his opponents, as well as the players that have come before him. Jean DeVilliers is another guy in this vein.
3. Drive - Always looking to get better, find an edge over his opponent, never giving up, and yes, getting away with as much as he can to help his team win. It's rare to see this level of commitment and he has channelled it brilliantly through his career.
