England get the better of France with some great tries at Twickenham

France's midfield was pedestrian. A guy like Fofana makes such a difference on attack.

New Zealand hold onto Bledisloe Cup with punishing win over Australia

Polished performance by the Kiwis. Carter is as sharp as ever. And Dan Coles really doesn't look like he should be as fast as he is. Very deceptive.

The Top Tries scored in world rugby in July

Some great tries here, but my favourite is the Fijian try against Tonga. Those two big bumps were brutal, and then rounded off with one of the most accurate inside passes I've seen for some time.

Laurie Weeks sent off and banned for multiple punches on Jannie du Plessis

I never thought I'd say this, but the Stormers front row is looking as good as any in the competition this year. Kitshof and Koch have destroyed just about every scrum they've faced. Probably a little too soon to talk about the option of Koch at Bok tighthead, but he's certainly a guy to watch. If it's pure scrummaging you're after, the other tighthead to consider is Julian Redelinghuys of the Lions. Short and very powerful, you never see him going backwards.

Laurie Weeks sent off and banned for multiple punches on Jannie du Plessis

It might have been an open-hand slap to the back of the head, but you get slaps and you get slaps. And the doctor appeared to dish out a pretty solid one here. I wouldn't have enjoyed that. Yellow sounds about right.

Laurie Weeks sent off and banned for multiple punches on Jannie du Plessis

How Weeks managed to muster such convincing incredulity at his red card after landing at least 5 clean punches to the face deserves special mention. Stayed in character very well.
