Mark Richards KO'd after colliding with the shoulder of Willem Alberts

Alberts plays no.8, not lock. And he often drops back along the touchline to field kicks and run them back.

Yep, Julian was decidedly un-smiley at the end.

Great sportsmanship from 19 year old Portuguese 7's player vs Fiji

I thought the ref handled this well too. No faffing about, no indecision. The sending off, the correction and the reversal all happened in about 20 seconds. Well played.

Test Rugby Results - November 22nd weekend

The Ireland Australia game was just about as entertaining as 80 minutes of rugby can be. Edge of the seat stuff right till the end. The Aussies were lucky to have Foley's try awarded, as it was clearly grounded short, but these things happen. Loved Ireland's commitment in defense towards the end. One huge tackle by O'Connel in particular, in the closing minutes, summed up the Irish effort.

South Africa aim to up the intensity after another win over England

Second England rolling maul try (Morgan?) should never have happened, as it was supposed to be a Bok lineout 40m up the field. Habana's foot was very clearly on the ground before he caught the ball. Ref should have checked. Other than that, good, tough old-fashioned game. Most enjoyable. I also don't see why so many are writing England off. They're looking like World Cup semi-finalists to me.
