Great tries from the Sharks vs Highlanders Super Rugby Qualifier

How quick is Chavanga. Looks like a proper sprinter in that shot from the front.

Springboks brush aside Welsh challenge with convincing win in Durban

How good was Willie le Roux in this game. I agree with Meyer - he's the form fullback in the world at the moment. And Jan Serfontein is still going to make plenty headlines. Crazy to think he went into this series as possibly the fourth choice inside centre, behind De Villiers, Steyn and De Allende (and possibly even Juan de Jongh).

Don't think the Welsh will roll over like this in the second test. However, they need to take a few risks and spread the ball wide. North and Cuthbert are so dangerous, but hardly got the ball on Saturday.

The Best Five Tries from Round three of the 2014 Junior World Championship

Welsh scrumhalf looks like he was ahead of the kicker on that last try. Not by much, but if you pause at 2:44 you can see that he is. Wonder why the ref didn't check with the TMO.

Wales get tour off to good start with midweek win over Eastern Province Kings

Ideally Wales would have probably wanted a slightly sterner test than the Kings. This poor team just bleeds talent to the Super15 franchises - hardly any big names left. 34-12 is actually a pretty decent result for them, all things considered.

Durban should be a cracking test though.

Springboks run riot against strong World XV in Cape Town

I think the Barbarians only play in Britain. So while this is almost the same squad as the Baabaas, they can't call themselves that elsewhere. Also not sure if the selections rules (one uncapped player) applies to the World XV.

Springboks run riot against strong World XV in Cape Town

I think Matfield and Botha will stick around until Eben Etsebeth and Pieter-Steph du toit are fit again.

Wallabies notch up 50 in runaway first Test win against France

While this was one of the worst French performances I've ever seen, some of those Aussie tries were just beautifully crafted. Israel Folau is a joy to watch.
