Rayno Benjamin's sneaky trip gets cautioned before he commits a blooper of note

Whatever the TMO said and meant, sending a player off for what Benjamin did is beyond stupid. If that warrants a yellow card, then every single ruck, scrum and lineout in every game of rugby should see two or three cards.

Springboks bounce back from defeat to win comfortably in Argentina

Yes, centre is an interesting conundrum, made even more interesting by Meyer's recent attempts to bring Jaque Fourie back into the fold. Jean de Villiers can count on his spot. De Allende, Serfontein and Frans Steyn are probably also competing for the same spot in the squad, and there will be enormous pressure on Meyer to give Mapoe game time at 13 (where Kriel has really penned his name in with some big performances). And then there's still de Jongh.

Springboks bounce back from defeat to win comfortably in Argentina

Yes, I think the squad is 95% picked. Between form, injuries and the new wave of pressure on Meyer to racially transform the team, there's not an awful lot of wiggle room. Which sucks for a guy like Jaco Kriel, who should at least be on the bench for every game, if not starting. But he won't, because it now looks like Coetzee, Burger, Brussow, Carr, Kolisi, Alberts, Louw and Mohoje are all ahead of him.

I thought Leguizamon was Argentina's best player. Brilliant on defence around the rucks and very hard to stop with ball in hand.

England get the better of France with some great tries at Twickenham

France's midfield was pedestrian. A guy like Fofana makes such a difference on attack.

New Zealand hold onto Bledisloe Cup with punishing win over Australia

Polished performance by the Kiwis. Carter is as sharp as ever. And Dan Coles really doesn't look like he should be as fast as he is. Very deceptive.
