The Best Tries scored in Round 6 of Super Rugby 2014

I rather enjoyed these, but the last one was a clunker. Not sure how that's one of the best scored this week. Determined running, I guess, but he didn't exactly make anyone miss and no passes.

I keep hearing the children's song: "One of these things is not like the others..." :-)

Saw what you like about playing on the edge of the law, but Richie is one of the greatest ever. Every side would love to have him and it's amazing how well he has withstood the demands of such a punishing position.

The three qualities I think of in RM:

1. Leadership - The ABs, Crusaders, and Canterbury give their all for this guy, and he earns that respect by his effort.
2. Humility/Respect - I'm glad this was mentioned by others. He has a genuine respect for his mates and his opponents, as well as the players that have come before him. Jean DeVilliers is another guy in this vein.
3. Drive - Always looking to get better, find an edge over his opponent, never giving up, and yes, getting away with as much as he can to help his team win. It's rare to see this level of commitment and he has channelled it brilliantly through his career.

So in the process of trying to ping McCaw, you've jumped right ahead and insulted an entire country. Well done! I'm sure all those nice Kiwis are happy for you to point out their "facade."

Hey Canuck, are you going to contribute to the conversation or just go on being a tosser?

Willie Le Roux stars as the Springboks beat Scotland at Murrayfield

I don't think anyone is suggesting DeVilliers is dirty; I'm a fan actually, as it's hard not to respect him. I thought at first that it was a bad attempt to help ground the ball but it was so poorly done, even that doesn't make much sense.

I had the exact question about DeVilliers. Can't figure out what he was trying to do. The Scottish player clearly didn't expect someone to come crashing down on his head at that point.

England beat Argentina but frustrate fans ahead of next weekend

"And having contained the Wallaby and the Puma backline I don't think the AB backs are going to be such a step up."

I can't tell if you're being serious. Cory Jane & Piutau with Dagg at fullback aren't a step up? Ben Smith is still an experiment in midfield, and will have some serious questions asked of him across from Tuilagi, but in my opinion, that backline is a significant step up, especially considering their form.

France vs New Zealand and November Tests Preview video

Interesting that the ABs are in their alternate strip again. Seems like this happens often with the french. 2007 RWC of course, but I also recall the French chose to allow NZ wear their traditional black in the 2011 final when they had the right to force them to wear an alternate. I guess I just don't see that the black and blue tones are that close, but maybe it really is tough to discern on the field.
