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

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.

Fiji Women's 7s produce stunning team try against New Zealand

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.

Toulon set for yet another final following tense victory over Leinster

Looks like a pretty good game. Not so sure about the narration of this video though.

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.

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

I thought the ref handled this well too. No faffing about, no indecision. The sending off, the correction and the reversal all happened in about 20 seconds. Well played.

Test Rugby Results - November 22nd weekend

The Ireland Australia game was just about as entertaining as 80 minutes of rugby can be. Edge of the seat stuff right till the end. The Aussies were lucky to have Foley's try awarded, as it was clearly grounded short, but these things happen. Loved Ireland's commitment in defense towards the end. One huge tackle by O'Connel in particular, in the closing minutes, summed up the Irish effort.
