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:
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick for Portugal in their 6-0 win over Andorra in the 2018 World Cup Qualifier match. Here are the Portugal captain’s goals:
Hunter’s huge hit
Australian schooboy star Hunter Paisami put in a massive tackle on New Zealand schools winger Leicester Faingaanuku in the trans-tasman encounter between the two sides.
The All Blacks’ attacking ability
New Zealand managed to score nine tries against the Springboks in Durban on Saturday, with one of the best being the fantastic team effort in the 60th minute that saw TJ Perenara dot down.
All Blacks’ persistence
One has to admire the attacking perseverance of the All Blacks, as even after the 80 minute siren had sounded, the New Zealanders went from their own half on a counter-attacking endeavour that resulted in a 81st minute try for Liam Squire.
Trask’s individual brilliance
New Zealand Barbarians schools XV took on Fiji schools this past weekend, with New Zealand’s flyhalf Kaleb Trask scoring a stunning solo try to put his team in the lead.
