We take a look at the biggest and best sporting moments from this past weekend.

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 7; so without further ado, here are our picks of the best sporting moments from the past weekend:

To the races

Two of the fastest men in rugby, USA’s Perry Baker and England’s Dan Norton went head to head in a sprint at the USA Sevens, and it was quite sight to behold.

Mandi’s spectacular volley

Algerian defender Aissa Mandi scored this amazing goal in La Liga vs Real Sociedad. What a finish!

Specman’s step & speed

During the USA 7s Cup final against Fiji, South Africa’s Rosco Specman produced sensational try for his side, sparked by a sublime sidestep.

Golden point magic

In the NRL rugby league match between the Cowboys and Raiders, things were tied up at 16-16, and with the game going to Golden-Point extra time, this happened…

The Highlanders’ set-piece move

In typical Highlanders style, the men from Dunedin scored a spectacular set-piece try against the Crusaders thanks to the help of Lima Sopoaga, Malakai Fekitoa, and Waisake Naholo.

Griezmann’s audacious strike

Antoine Griezmann scored a sensational left-footed goal from long-range at Atletico Madrid. A classic from the Frenchman.

The Chiefs’ silky skills

The two-time Super Rugby champions, the Chiefs, delivered a brilliant team-try thanks to some excellent handling from both backs and forwards, which was rounded off by star fullback Damian McKenzie.

Bonus moment: Owen’s cheeky spirit

Nigel Owens stole the show on Saturday evening in the RDS as he brandished a yellow card at a ballboy during Leinster’s 36 point win over the Scarlets. The prestigious World Rugby referee was reacting in jest to the young ballboy throwing a ball on to the field, that hit the Welshman straight on the head.
