In a few hours time the first Tri Nations gets back underway after a week off as New Zealand travelled to South Africa to face the Springboks in front of 90 000 at Soccer City. There was plenty of other rugby taking place last weekend though, so heres the Plays of the Week.
Better late than never, its time to catch up with the boys down under as we get the run down of the best from Australian club rugby, the ITM Cup, and then theres Drew Mitchell flaunting his stuff. Not sure what to say about that.
Amongst the tries, Israel Dagg finished off a classic Hawkes Bay counterattack from deep in their half against Tasman. Incidentally, Dagg has signed for powerhouse side Canterbury for the next two years, so expect to see plenty more tries from him soon.
The Wallaby players took the opportunity to stretch their legs a bit as they turned out to play some club rugby before they left for South Africa for their two upcoming Test matches.
Its another entertaining weeks summary, and you cant beat seeing Drewster the Rooster doing his thing in an attempt to bring in the ladies. Enjoy.
