We have come to that time of the week when Planet Rugby brings you all an offering of a stand-out video we know you'll like the look of.

Our recent choices have seen Currie Cup glory, a flashback to the 2008 Super Rugby final, the Commonwealth Games, official bloopers and Dan Carter magic selected as we continue to scour the archives.

This week though ahead of Saturday's monster clash in Sydney, we have dug deep in the archives to find what appears to be a VHS copy of an absolute humdinger - the 2000 Bledisloe Cup clash in Wellington between New Zealand and Australia.

The finish to this one really is extraordinary. You can find the teamsheets below. Enjoy!
