Springboks edge All Blacks in another thriller between the two rivals

No buts.

And the game wasn't "decided by a bad call". Every game has some dubious calls going both ways. This one was no exception. There was a number of rucks where McCaw played from an offside position - one where he even plays the ball back while lying on the ground. Ref doesn't always see or blow it up - such is the nature of the game. Just because the Burger call happened in the final minute, doesn't make it any different from all the calls before. It was a tight game that the Boks probably deserved to take by a narrow margin. Which they did.

As I said, it's a loss and it's going to happen from time to time. Take it on the chin and move on.

No buts.

Argentina beat the Wallabies to claim first ever win in Rugby Championship

Great game by the Pumas, and some silly, cynical play by the Aussies.

Glad to see it's not only the Boks that get matched backwards by the Pumas scrum.

Naked streaker starts mass brawl after tackling Varsity match winger

Here's the Baenhoff tackle (and by tackle I mean the hit).

Best comeuppance for a pitch invader has to be this fool who gets himself knocked out cold trying to tackle Louis Koen as he slots a conversion for the Boks. Conversion sails over, and Koen barely glances down at the tackler as he picks up his tee.

They had to. He was badly exposed.

Springboks edge All Blacks in another thriller between the two rivals

This ref blaming is most unbecoming. A few miserable losers here giving the Kiwis a bad name. It's a loss. Just take it on the chin and move on.

Perhaps it's just as well the Kiwis have such a good record. Imagine having to hear this whining more often.

Discussion on Francois Louw injury from Richie McCaw cleanout

Let's not kid ourselves here. If that had been Bakkies, we'd be talking a few weeks off. Need reminding what kind of cleanout gets him banned?

Springboks' three late tries shock Wallabies in tough Test in Cape Town

I went to the game and I must say I haven't experienced such an atmosphere at Newlands for a long time. Great way to spend the afternoon.

Would appreciate longer highlights - there was some excellent play from both sides. Particularly the build up to the second Springbok try - Jan Serfontein's break and Cornal Hendricks stepping (and hurdling) before we get to the bit shown in this video.

The Top 5 Schoolboy Prodigies, then and now

Excellent compilation. At 2:25 he steps not only half the team, but the poor cameraman too. Took him about 4 seconds to find him again - just in time for the score under the posts.

Cornal Hendricks and Richie McCaw tries from great All Blacks vs Springboks Test

To be fair, the NZ lock combination might not have been first choice, but Brody Retallic very much is. And he was huge on Saturday. Probably my man of the match.

Regarding the form of Bismark and Willie - they're both too good to not shape up again. And when they do... Remember, at some stage we could have Willem Alberts, Fourie du Preez and Pieter-Steph du Toit back in the team. Plus we might even find a decent tighthead prop one day.

Then we'll be unstoppable :)

Yep, old Chopper here should have included Clancy and Poite in this video.
