New #BeattheBoks campaign video causes a stir in South Africa

Lord can no one have a bit of fun anymore! Any Boks can correct me if i'm wrong but i'm guessing its purely the media kicking up a fuss?

Rupeni Caucaunibuca playing well after returning to the ITM Cup

Great to see an awesome player back in action! Questionable interviewer though... didn't take much away from that.

All Blacks retain Bledisloe Cup with Wellington win over Wallabies

I think the overriding feelings on the topic arent directed at either team in particular per se, more whether this particular set of officials have the ability to control the game in the manner that its meant to be controlled. Of course every team is going to try to push the boundaries, but the ref should show the authority (to both teams) to penalise in the correct manner when necessary.

All Blacks retain Bledisloe Cup with Wellington win over Wallabies

The officials seemed distinctly one sided in my eyes! Some appalling decisions made. I feel that Australia could've had a better game if, at the few points that they had the ball, span it out wide. O'Connor and Folau must've had maybe 6 or 7 touches between them! They kept running forward phases over and over, as if all they wanted to do was retain possession for as long as possible but got killed at so many breakdowns. Don't even get me started on the scrums... Clearly Moore didn't take his own advice and learn how to hook.

The British and Irish Lions win the series 2-1 after third Test rout

Ahh but from my view he didn't get as far as grounding it against the posts, did the right thing recycling just in case the officials were a bit hazy with the particular rules, as they so often appear to be.

Actually I did catch that on the TV, granted bit cynical and unsportsmanlike, but i've seen it happen stacks of times and no doubt it'll happen again (granted not much of a justification, but the 25 point lead thing works both ways i.e. if they'd have taken it quick, there's no good chance anything will have come from it and nowhere near enough time for them to turn it around.)

On that same note, did anyone else catch Barnes at the end, in another of his well informed comments, exclaimed with no sense of irony, "its good to see a lions series won without relying on dominance in the forwards" or words to that effect. I don't know which games he watches but they sure aint the games that Sky broadcast.

The British and Irish Lions win the series 2-1 after third Test rout

...well that was unexpected. Must say had my doubts about the 10 welshmen but fair play, they all held their own. However I must say the two standout players in my eyes were amongst the remaining five, in the forms of Sexton and Corbisiero (even Adam Jones was saying after about how much of an influence he had on the scrum). But all in all, awesome display, one to remember.

On a side note, although Halfpenny was well deserving of player of the tour, my vote would go to both T. Youngs and Parling, who'd have thought those two would be amongst the regular starters for the tests and hold their positions so well. Consequently, Parling's trip tackle was a particular highlight for me!
