Realistically, nothing more could have been asked of Slade or Cipriani in these past two games. So if they aren't picked for the squad, the only deduction that can be made is that they were write offs from the start. So what on earth would be the point in giving them game time if they had no hope of ever being picked. Surely they have to be selected?!

A look at the Top Three Try Saving Tackles ever, as chosen by Dewi Morris

Poor Andy. Although to be fair to him, if it weren't for his sensational work as a speedbump it looks as though Big Seb could well have been in. Perhaps Gomarsall should be on this list?

All fantastic player thwarting takedowns, but my all time favourite will always be Barrett on Le Roux. Or, from an English perspective, THAT Joe Worsley tap on Vincent Clerc?

Michael Hooper suspended for one week for striking Nicolas Sanchez

Was Hooper REALLY going to fly from Argentina back to Sydney, to play a low level (all relative) club game for Manly...a week before the bloody bledisloe?! Surely Cheika wants his whole squad together to prepare.

Just a thought - if bans are only significant in terms of how many games a player will miss, why do the IRB issue bans based on time. I get the impression things would be a lot less messy and open to dispute if a player is banned for x number of games, rather than x number of weeks?

Incredible backflip pass by Nathan Friend leads to great Rugby League Try

Also spent some time down under. I want to grab every Australian by their shoulders and give them a shake. Someone has to tell them that all of their best players are playing the wrong bloody game! It's got to the point where I much prefer to watch a game of NRL to a game of super rugby - purely because of the quality of players.

This is coming from someone who's played and watched union all their life. Make these freaks of nature play the better code and we would have something very, very special.

With moments like this it's hardly surprising union is dying out in Australia. The NRL is absolutely incredible.

Sounds as if the ARU have desperately wanted to keep Folau in union so added this in.
