Proof that Lima Sopoaga leaving is a massive loss to New Zealand rugby

Rugbydump, you are better than the clickbaity title. It's newsworthy that he's leaving, but "proof of a massive loss" is definitely overstating it. Dr G has it bang on.

Waisake Naholo falcons Aaron Smith, probably because of the hairstyle

That'll leave a mark. :-)

New Zealand hang on to beat Scotland after dramatic finale in Edinburgh

Fair enough. It was more a comment on the type of interpretation on those plays as it was a comment on the play itself.

Courtney Lawes lays into Kurtley Beale as England run rampant over Australia

Hilarious how he was protesting to the ref about "hitting the ball up" as if he was trying to bat it to himself and actually play the ball. He clearly swats it down toward the ground.

New Zealand hang on to beat Scotland after dramatic finale in Edinburgh

No idea how Naholo didn't get sent off. I see where the 9 was, but really couldn't tell from the camera angle why they considered that enough reason to mitigate.

Loved that second try from Scotland, and SBW is sure playing well with the newfound kicking game and another huge offload. ABs would have been in deep trouble and probably lose without those plays.

Soso Matiashvili incredible finish helps Georgia's big win over Canada

Seriously impressive.

RD, surely you meant that they were "leading by 18", not "trailing by 18"?

Wallabies come right with strong second half to see off Argentina

Did I miss something with the Phipps try? Didn't look like he released it.

The most controversial moments from All Blacks vs Lions 2nd Test

Watch the image loop mate, it shows both of them. Handy comparison!

The most controversial moments from All Blacks vs Lions 2nd Test

What I never realized before is that Faumuina's feet never move forward. He's the defender and ready to tackle and is standing his ground, albeit leaning forward at impact. But you'd hardly expect a defender to lean back in a tackle, right? But according to this ruling, because Sinckler has jumped, Faumuina is supposed to stand straight up in order to legally tackle him? He didn't go exceptionally low and even though Sinckler is in the air, he hits him mid-thigh.

Sorry, I just don't get this rule being applied in every single instance and it's a shame that the deciding points came from a penalty like this one.

HIGHLIGHTS: British & Irish Lions beat All Blacks to keep series alive

Last time they lost 2 in a row period, I'm not sure. Last time they lost two in a row at home was 1998 I think (SA and Australia).

Good point about the weather. I'm wondering that too. If it's clear, the ABs will be happy with that. A wet and miserable night will make it more of an arm wrestle like last week.
