Brian O'Driscoll Masterclass - Defensive play at the breakdown

I've never seen someone last so long at such a high class level. It seems to me that just before his retirement the 5-7% of speed and perhaps agility he lost, , was replaced with about 20-30% of mindset and experience.

He never seemed to dip low, he just replaced what he lost with something else.

I can't name names (I don't know any lol)... but it appears "modern" players come into the limelight being amazing at something, they get found out, injured and when they come back they've lost part of that 'something' but haven't replaced it with anything else...

Anyway my £0.02

Ben Tameifuna cited for big shove on referee Glen Jackson

"The obstruction resulted in a try"

Said the scrum half after the 30 stone prop scored. XD

Sorry.. I couldn't resist!

Not a prop, but Hooker Brian Moore certainly put in an admirable effort:

Surely you must have enjoyed the reaction more than the incident itself???

Fly half = 1
Prop = 0

I've got to admit, he was a bit too close to the action, but it was still an unnecessary shove...at least that hard anyway.

Springboks survive Salta scare after excellent Argentina performance

I don't see anyone criticising the Argies? Nobody expected Argentina to come onto the big stage and win all their games...

Springboks survive Salta scare after excellent Argentina performance

Seems vastly narrow minded from the powers that be. Probably one of those things that will fix itself through time, but I can imagine it's frustrating as an open eyed fan!

One thing the rest of the world might actually hope for, is that the Argentines DON'T get their rugby in order...

I mean they've shown the power they possess.. At the moment it isn't translating into straight wins, but they're damn close against some of the toughest oppositions out there...

They're doing all of this with half their players up in the NH clubs, the rest are elsewhere somewhere... Could be quite scary if they actually got on the same regimes as some of the 'big' teams.

Something in the rugby universe is no longer aligned :/ Could The Blackness' reign of terror be coming to an end?
