New Zealand win England series 2-0 with victory in Dunedin

Yes, I couldn't watch the match, but read all about Ben Smith's tackle on Tuilagi, but it's not in the highlights! A number of commentators said that was a key inflection point for the match, so I'll have to look for it elsewhere.

I have the same issue, always click on the "YouTube" logo to watch at the full site, then come back here for the comments. Or just use FF or PaleMoon.

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.
