Ruan Pienaar bids tearful farewell to Ulster after seven years in Belfast

That's a good point. When you needed one "magician" and one "speedster/bruiser" for your backline bench, he was an easy pick. But when you could pick out and out specialists, other names came into the mix.

LIVE STREAM: Rugby World Cup 2019 Pool Draw from Japan

SA ending up in NZ's pool is actually a blessing in disguise. Means we can't face them again until the final :)

Super Rugby 2017 - Round 11 Highlights

That Sylvian Mahuza try for the Lions... Admittedly the Rebels defense was awful, but still you've got to give them man the credit. Unbelievable run.

Ruan Pienaar bids tearful farewell to Ulster after seven years in Belfast

Classy player who never really got the credit he deserved back home. And by home I mean the Boks, not the Sharks (they still love him in Durban). Admittedly much of his career overlapped with Fourie du Preez, and that's a tough gig. But the fickle Bok fans could never really agree on Ruan.

Sam Whitelock forearm 'strike' in retaliation gets him two week ban

Retaliation my arse. He landed perfectly on his feet. No reason for this kind of nonsense.

Pascal Pape and Wenceslas Lauret red carded after tense Paris derby brawl

Pape is such a twat. His look of indignant outrage after copping a halfhearted blow to the side of his head mere seconds after he smashed a guy's eye open kind of describes the man.

Referee knocked out by disgraceful punch in rugby league game

This guy has issues that go beyond the game of rugby.

And good bodyslam by 2 after copping a few swings. Reminiscent of a young Brock Lesnar.

Andre Esterhuizen red carded and banned for 6 weeks for dump on head

At the risk of defending the indefensible... the tackle looked horrible, but he had the player around the chest area and at no point lifted his legs or hips to dump him. The whole "lifting beyond the horizontal" doesn't really seem appropriate here. I suspect he was nailed more for how the guy fell than for how he actually tackled.
