Rene Ranger set to return to New Zealand and the Blues

His performances with Montpellier are very disappointing. He plays like he doesn't care, he is not focused on his game.

Rugby HQ's Top 5 Biggest Hitters in Super Rugby history

There are many players who could be in this list, but I would like to remember the greatest big hitter of all time. He never played in Super Rugby, but he was an outstanding 7's player and quite good at XV's as well. I'm talking of course about Viliame "The Stretcher" Satala!

Sebastien Chabal knocks out Marc Giraud with big right hook

Ah, the good old complaint about Nyanga/SOB. Strangely no one notices that SOB has no right to be untied from his crushed scrum.

Brian O'Driscoll dropped for series decider against the Wallabies

More muscles, less brain. It's the Wallabies they're playing against, not Italy (with all my respect to the Italians). If it's a defeat at the final whistle, it's gonna turn ugly.

Tamati Ellison's sensational pass puts Ben Smith in for the try

"seemed like they were in it the whole game." : sadly it's the story of the highlanders this season. They build up some very good phases, but it often ends up with a turnover, an interception, or another mistake. And they are horrible defensively. But we can still admire the skills of B.Smith, H.Gear and T.Ellison. However Nonu is absolutely rubbish with the Landers, it's not the same player with the AB shirt on his shoulders.

Shane Williams and Christian Wade called up and on the wings vs the Brumbies

Knowing that they play without their international players, the Reds, the Waratahs and Brumbies have not fielded a B side. The Reds gave them some sweats, the Tahs were not that bad especially in 1rst half and I bet the Brumbies will be a decent opposition. Ok, the Force and Combined country were not much more than a training match.

The Top 5 Individual Tries of all time - Rugby HQ

Yeah, by seeing the title my first thought was "Christian Cullen". He could have a top 5 all alone though. Jonah Lomu or Caucaunibuca would also be serious contenders.

Buck Shelford previews the New Zealand vs France three-Test series

Buck Shelford, what a legend! Lord of the pitch. I hope Les Bleus won't make him lie. Good first match this morning/evening.
