High-class knockout rugby, flag and dance moves

It’s time for Planet Rugby’s Sunday Social, your weird summary of the serious and not-so-serious talking points of last week’s action.

The weekend’s performance for us began with the Crusaders’ impressive victory over the Reds in their quarter-finals. We still can’t believe Sevu Reece won from here.

Later that day it was a Premier 15s trophy joy for Saracens The women’s team when they made it three home titles in four years. Here they enjoy the victory.

In the United Rugby Championship‘s first quarterfinal, an outstanding display of Ulster saw them beat rivals Munster to a semi-final place. They burned.

While rugby is famous for its respect for the full-time whistle, this tunnel was nice to see how Ulster comforted their opponents after a hard away defeat.

Earlier in the week we traveled down a memorial route with the Guinness Six Nations‘Twitter page as they posted a French team from 28 years ago. Known names.

On Saturday and after Leaders defeated the Waratahs to join the Crusaders in the semifinals, there were a number of Roger Tuivasa-Sheck fans at the Blues match.

The center would win a great team attempt in the Blues ‘win over the Highlanders, but this steal at the top of the Highlanders’ lock Josh Dickon was ridiculous.

Super Rugby Pacific’s final place in the last four was taken by the Brumbies as they defeated the Hurricanes in a game that saw a fun Sparta moment for Nic White.

The melee half won’t care about the physique though as the Brumbies are now marching to the midfield, then waving the flag for the whole of Australia next weekend.

Despite the negative result for the Hurricanes, it was a special exhaustion for TJ Perenana as he accelerated his 150th Super Rugby game, with this nice touch.

There was also a tweet of congratulations from All Blacks teammate Aaron Smith for his old friend, who came with a push to continue and break the trial record.

Meanwhile, the Premiership reached its final regular-season round and this unloading of Adam Hastings from Gloucester was excellent in their huge win over Saracens.

In Cape Town the Stormers had their dancers on the field again but this time the star of the show was joined by a number of companions who got the crowd in the mood.

Finally, while some players are now in full knockout mode, for many the season is over and it is clear that Jamal Ford-Robinson is now letting go of his hair.
