Springboks' three late tries shock Wallabies in tough Test in Cape Town

I'm very envious, the atmosphere did seem incredible - the release of tension when the Bokke got their tries at the end was immense just watching on TV, I imagine at the ground it must have been out of this world.

Springboks' three late tries shock Wallabies in tough Test in Cape Town

Take a bow, Jean de Villiers. Might be his last test match at Newlands, and the last thing he does is score a try. What a player.

More important, he kept the guys going when frustration could have gotten the better of them. But is there a more devastating impact sub than Bismarck? He was everywhere the last 15 minutes.

Fair play to the Aussies again, and no great surprise, when you have a quality game the whistler was Owens.

Honey Badger Nick Cummins stars in new Head & Shoulders commercial

Probably.

The Badg is an international treasure. His interviews are great because they break the mould completely; no banalities or predictable clap-trap, sure it's not just me who finds it refereshing.

I've never met the bloke, but he seems an honest-to-goodness good guy. The banter, the humour, the mick-taking, it's all in the best spirit, with no malice ever intended.

And I'm pretty sure too he signed to play in Japan because he needs the cash to support his family. It wasn't some pure mercenary decision, and it wasn't an easy one.

And look, no-one says you have to love his sense of humour. But there's no need to get salty because others of us do.

Is there anything this man can't do? (Apart from kicking a rugby ball, of course)

Aaron Cruden banned for two matches after missing team flight

Certainly plausible he got hammered, but that was just Act 1 of Aaron's great adventure. I'd like to know more about Acts 2 and 3.

Discussion on Francois Louw injury from Richie McCaw cleanout

Very hopeful that it's nothing serious, but Louw is having surgery on his neck this week - never imagined a pinched nerve would result in surgery, but hopefully he'll be fine and the 7 week recovery timeline is correct.

Of the incident itself, I'd see it as an unfortunate collision, don't think there's anything malicious or illegal about the clear-out.

Aaron Cruden banned for two matches after missing team flight

Anyone else not quite fully convinced by the excuse?

He goes out for pop, I get that, then whoops, when everyone's gathering to go the airport, he's nowhere to be found? Presumably not answering his phone either?

It makes sense to blame the sauce, but that isn't even half the story here.

The Top 5 Schoolboy Prodigies, then and now

Best schoolboy rugby player I remember seeing ended up being a cricketer - Herschelle Gibbs.

He played flyhalf for Bishops, and if there was ever a more natural ballplayer, I'd have to see it to believe it. Run, pass, kick, place-kick, you name it, the guy was illegally talented.

It's hardly the best video, and doesn't do justice to how good he was, but the guy haring away from defenders at around 40 seconds is him; and then at around 3:08, he steps about 5 guys.
