Sensational Stepper Nehe Milner-Skudder's Tribute Video

If only the World cup was just about having the most talented players, I think NZ would have it in the bag time after time.

It seems to me that most teams around the world have excellent players with a few outstanding ones... NZ seems to have outstanding players with a few excellent ones... then of course there are injuries, and most teams replace injured outstanding players with excellent ones... and NZ?? They replace injured outstanding with more outstanding....

Just ridiculous really...

Ed Morrison admits that Springboks probably scored try in 1995 World Cup Final

I felt much the same, until I saw Jouberts performance in the last RWC final...

Actually, to be fair, I still have some respect for him, I just reckon the pressure was too big. Maybe (m)any referee would have struggled.

Ruck Clean Out Drill trains players how to dominate the breakdown

Sorry Larry, in my state of fatigue I didn't really read your comment well and took it as something along the lines of "the video shows you illegal play" or something like that..

Ruck Clean Out Drill trains players how to dominate the breakdown

I'm too lazy to:

a) watch the video again
b) check up on the laws

But isn't the first person in allowed to have hands on the ball even after a ruck is formed... as long as they are on their feet and had their hands on the ball before a ruck was formed then it is fine...

Friday Funnies - Clearing kick lands directly on touchjudge's head

Well.... Supporters wear shirts of their teams, maybe this guy is just a really big fan of the referee?

Not a coach but I'd definitely try and introduce it and would hope it would be accepted.

Jean de Villiers makes long-awaited comeback vs World XV

I love the above comments. Only in rugby would a bunch of people (some who don't support the boks) actually congratulate the return of a formidable player...

I mean who REALLY wants JDV at his top level to be playing against their bunch in the world cup? All of us and also none of us....

Wish the guy well and hope he progress in his recovery, great to have him back. As 10st10 said, well done to the staff involved.

All Blacks beat determined Samoa in historic first ever Test in Apia

Can't say for sure on the 1:42 incident, but it looks very close (in favour of there being no offside).

3:15, totally agree with you there, no way that should have been blown up!

A huge amount of it has to be down to general physique though. These guys are naturally bigger than average, throw some conditioning in the mix and you get monsters, from there on you'll have the sports inspired bunch developing some nifty skills and taking it on further.

Look at the heart that the likes of Shane Williams, Peter Stringer, Gio Aplon etc show, yet they're dwarves amongst giants..throw that sort of passion into something the size of a ute and you get the Samoan teams...
