David Pocock scores first half hat-trick against the Highlanders

It's not like he spotted someone picking his nose and told the ref. Homophobic and racial slurs are wrong, and it is precisely this urge to keep it part of the "boys' club" in games like rugby and football that needs to end. I'm all for "tattling" in cases like this.

Schalk Burger awarded Comeback of the Year at the 2015 Laureus Awards

I used to think that too. But lately he's been playing like he's been hanging out with the Harlem Globetrotters. Pinpoint flick-ons, back-hand offloads and through-the-legs passes. Plus he's back to winning turnovers at rucks too, which helps if you're selected as an openside flank.

True legend. I hope he's in our WC squad. Very tough competition for a starting spot in the back row with Alberts, Louw, Vermeulen, Coetzee and now also guys like Whiteley, Carr, Brussouw and Kolisi. But he's the type of guy who really lifts players around him in big games.

Incredible play. How do defend against a move where every offload is accurate and everything just sticks?

Jocelino Suta penalised for MMA style chokehold on Richardt Strauss

That's pretty shocking - way beyond what is acceptable "intimidation" play. Red card and a few weeks to think about it would have been appropriate.

Mark Richards KO'd after colliding with the shoulder of Willem Alberts

Alberts plays no.8, not lock. And he often drops back along the touchline to field kicks and run them back.
