Looking back at the first ever European Cup match in 1995

Ah the white athletic tape with electrical tape over the wrists, you don't see that as much anymore. Remember the breathe-right strips on the nose that every SA player wore for about two years in the 90's? Heady days.

Great sportsmanship from 19 year old Portuguese 7's player vs Fiji

This is probably one of the coolest things I've seen on this website in a while! As long as rugby produces guys with this outlook on sport we're doing okay.

There is hope for the future yet...

South Africa aim to up the intensity after another win over England

Nice to see the English use the maul as a weapon, unfortunately the England backs don't look like they have any ideas of what to do with ball.

Barbarians run riot in entertaining midweek clash against Leicester Tigers

Buddy you hit the nail on the head, I'm 37 and the spirit in which the modern game is played is really far from it was when I started. The players are faster and bigger and more people make their living from the game but I think the game is much less fun to watch and play compared to the past.

At the end of the day all the really cool and unique parts of rugby union come from the amateur game. Bigger isn't always better. Have fun out there fellas!

Romain Taofifenua banned for three weeks for kicking Stuart Olding in the head

I think he is saying that the outcome, not the intention determines punishment. I agree with that sentiment.

Next to substitutions the refs' use of yellow and red cards and the multi-game bans that follow them has been the worst change in rugby in 20 years.

All Blacks snatch victory at the death in thrilling Brisbane Test

AB's squeak one against a disintegrating Australian side. Clearly NZ isn't unbeatable.

So long McKenzie. One backline player with a bad attitude and a rabid press have ruined what should have been a great tenure. I'm not sure any other team (save the Boks) could get as close to NZ.

Oh well, good luck to whomever takes over the Wallabies!
