Daly’s dramatic match-winner
The Six Nations clash between England and Wales was always going to be a tightly-contested affair, and England’s match-winning try in the dying moments of the game definitely stood out as one of the biggest moments of the weekend.
Milner-Skudder’s ridiculous footwork
World Cup-winning All Black winner Nehe Milner-Skudder made his long-awaited return from injury at the Global Brisbane 10s, and the hot-stepping speedster didn’t disappoint with a brilliant try and some skill for the Hurricanes.
Atletico Madrid’s Fernando Torres showed he still has the skill to pull of some spectacular moves when he netted a brilliant over-head kick to equalise with Celta.
The All-Stars shine
The Indigenous All Stars vs NRL All Stars rugby league match proved to be a cracker, with the Indigenous All Stars providing the razzle-dazzle thanks to a well-worked try which was rounded off by playmaker Jonathan Thurston.
Red-hot Mamelodi Sundowns humiliated a deplorably bad Orlando Pirates team at Loftus Versfeld on another historic afternoon in the Absa Premiership. The second of the goals stood out as the best of the bunch.
