Dion Berryman scores with incredible finish in the corner against Toulouse

The reason he's not playing in NZ is that he wasn't good enough to get a Super Rugby contract. In fact he couldn't even make the Western Force.

Looks like he can finish spectacularly though!

The All Blacks win the series with convincing victory over France

There isn't a tradition in NZ of singing or cheering during the game. We only have one monosyllabic chant as well! I wish it were otherwise but it would take time to change.

Unfortunately it's also become more common for fans of all nations to boo the opposition. I still stay silent for all kickers and clap / cheer for any points scored by either team, but it appears I'm old fashioned that way.

Prop Ben Franks' big hit and unbelievable try-saving tackle on wing Frank Halai

Fact check: Kaino was born in American Samoa so, under your logic, would have played for USA. And the team with the most "imports" in the last world cup was Samoa ... all born in New Zealand.

The thought of Hartley or Cooper pulling on a black jumper makes me feel queasy.

Courtney Lawes big tackle on Wasps flyhalf Nicky Robinson

You are spot on, but generally when people say "lead with the shoulder" they are referring to a shoulder charge.

Courtney Lawes big tackle on Wasps flyhalf Nicky Robinson

50/50 that the ref would whistle this as he does lead a little with his shoulder. He then joins the next ruck from the side ... He does like to live on the edge! Small change to his technique would mean less chance of ref blowing him up - definitely one to watch for the England's future.

Beast Mtawarira prevents Keegan Daniel from flipping head first

While the rest of us were enjoying a great play from a great player, you had to stick some negativity in, bravo.

England's Courtney Lawes suspended for two weeks

First tackle, no problems, fantastic hit. Second "tackle" was reckless and dangerous and deserved a minimum sentence, which is what he got. What we want is consistency ... Botha, Cooper!

All Blacks beat Tonga in opening match of Rugby World Cup 2011

Not as polished as an AB fan would want. SBW one good half, one poor. Dagg looked very classy as usual, Kahui as well. Tight five need to spend the next week practising their scrummaging technique!
