Some tight encounters, brilliant individual performances, and dramatic moments made for an incredibly entertaining weekend of sport. But with so many great highlights, we decided to rank out top 5; so without further ado, here are our picks of the best sporting moments from the past weekend:
While the Springboks’ performance against Argentina in the Rugby Championship left a lot to be desired, South Africa did some out of the gates firing, scoring a great try in the opening minutes of the match.
Neymar lead his team to Olympic glory against Germany in the men’s final at Rio 2016, and one of his standout moments was his pint-point free-kick to put Brazil 1-0 up.
Savea’s classy finish
The All Blacks demolished the Wallabies 42-8, scoring 6 tries, with one of the standouts being Julian Savea’s 5-pointer in the 58th minute.
The defending NZ domestic champions, Canterbury, scored a thrilling try in their encounter against Auckland in Christchurch.
In an almost identical goal to Neymar’s free-kick, Toulouse striker Martin Braithwaite scored a brilliant set-piece goal, curling his shot over and around the wall to beat Bordeaux’s keeper.
