Brumbies scrumhalf being a real little prick after the full time hooter there.

I don't think Nathalie is going to get back to you here. :)

Toulon claim unprecedented treble of European Cup titles with victory over Clermont

Would be interesting to see Toulon's average age vs some of the other European teams. Plenty of senior citizens there to push it up.

The Wraparound from Rugby HQ - Week 12

The Sivivatu tackle certainly didn't look like he meant for it to work out the way it did. Freak accident if you ask me.

On high fives, here is one of the worst ever:

But to be fair, it followed one of the best shots ever:

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.

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.
