That Mr. T bit was hilarious. It makes me wonder who would win in a fight if they were both at the top of their powers - Freuen or Mr. T? Freuen is huge, but Mr. T did beat Rocky for the heavyweight title. I can't decide.

was the Habana try given? Freuen is looking awesome, looking forward to seeing him in the upcoming test series against Ireland.

The try was given and in real time it looked like a standard dive finish where the ball bounces off after legitimate grounding... it's just that in the slow-mo replays everyone can see he's dived too early!

Can hardly blame the ref and touchies for not keeping up after Habana races away with an interception though!

of course not, which brings up something i always wondered, if the referee immediately then sees a replay on the stadium screen can he change his mind? i presume he is not allowed.

i seem to remember in a leinster match in the aviva stadium, either the quarters of semis of the HC last year, Hines scored a perfectly good try but by the time the ref got into a position to see it it was held up and it wasn't given. later on i think he may have seen it on the screen because i seem to remember him apologising to Cullen about it. obviously a very different situation but your heart must drop as a referee if you see a blatant mistake shown in the big screen!

Best one yet I'd say. I only wish Fruean had Mr T's aversion to getting on planes, might be the only way to stop him wreaking havoc at the next WC.

i can't watch these with the volume up, that music really grates. that kick looked painful, i've done that before, but at this level you're automatically supposed to get them every single time. ouchie

These highlights packages are definitely amusing, but they only ever seem to feature the best tries and hits from Kiwis and Ozzies. I get that Fox is an Australian company, but it's a tournament featuring teams from three nations. I have never seen an episode where SA teams get even a third of the coverage and they've been dishing out their fair share of hits and tries. Yes, I'm South African.

I'd love to see a Northern hemisphere version. Even a mash up of English, French and Celtic leagues.

Highlander with a cheeky grin on him at 1:57 - I think I'd be smiling too!
