La Rochelle hooker burns All Black legend to score dazzling 80m try

Did someone say running hookers? I give you Maliviwe Simanga, a bloke who plays in the second tier of our local university competition. It's a thing of beauty.

Hookers really give the best hand-offs.

Andries Coetzee has reinvented the wheel with inexplicable passing technique

Yes, he is the incumbent. But in springbok rugby that means nothing from season to season, particularly with a change in coaching staff.

Andries Coetzee has reinvented the wheel with inexplicable passing technique

Say what you will about his passing style, but Coetzee had an absolute cracker of a first game of the season last Saturday. Hardly put a foot wrong. Hope the Bok selectors are paying attention.

Young Lions winger scores stunning Super Rugby Try of the Week on debut

Good game, with the usual early season rust. Suddenly there are all sorts of midfield and wing options in SA rugby. Also, the "light" Lions pack was shoving the Sharks scrum all over the place, but then giving away half their own line-out ball. The tall Sharks lock, Ruan Botha, had a field day on the opposition throw-in.

That passionate post match interview that shocked and amused fans globally

And for the big bearded Afrikaans fella to captain a victorious Wits University, the pinnacle of English chin-stroking placard waving socialist academia against Tuks, the bastion of brutal Afrikaans university rugby, makes this extra special.

Suspension avoided despite this bad case of Faf de Klerk petulance

New tactic going forward: Pass the ball to an opposition player who has just been penalised or carded and is clearly not happy with the decision. You'll have better than 50/50 odds of him tossing it away and being summarily re-carded.

Fiji defy belief with unbelievable display of skill in epic Hamilton 7s final

I missed that one. The missus frowns upon me spending most of the weekend on the couch. Makes it hard for her to tell the kids they've had enough telly :)

Allister Coetzee is officially out, but SA Rugby refuse to name successor

Under Coetzee the Springboks lost:
57-15 to the All Blacks at home
57 - 0 to the All blacks away
38-3 to Ireland
20-18 to Italy
Any one of those results should have cost him his job.
Worst Bok coach ever, and we've had some extraordinarily poor ones.
