It is time for Planet Rugby’s Sunday Social, your quirky recap of the serious and not so serious talking points from the past week’s action.
The Blitzboks sealed an impressive win at the Dubai Sevens, their first in the Sandile Ngcobo era, in ideal preparation for next week’s Cape Town Sevens. Meanwhile, the Australian women’s side added yet another trophy to their cabinet after a successful weekend.

A big man with the voice of an angel! Have a look at Sam Talakai singing after his debut for the Wallabies. Got to love how the crowd gets behind the star.

Another Gloucester win, another Gloucester change room filled with song. Credit to George Skivington and his men for producing a fine performance to take the team into the top four of the Premiership.
Things you love to see 🤩 pic.twitter.com/hiXVKHbWVQ

Elsewhere, here’s Joe Marler with another gem of an interview. Very little of his media training was used in this one as the front-row shows off his quirky, sarcastic and funny side as he always does. One you would have to watch to believe.
Strap yourselves in, it's interview time with @JoeMarler! 😂
Don't bother reading this Tweet, just enjoy the following two minutes and 54 seconds…

These are the moments that we absolutely love. Leinster’s James Lowe lets a fan join him during an interview and ended up asking the youngster a question! Brilliant moment and a fan’s day was certainly made.

Lowe has struggled with injury recently and made a rampant return to rugby in Leinster’s sensational comeback against Irish rivals Ulster. The wing crossed for a try and will be looking to string some good form together before his inevitable return to the Irish set up.
James Lowe should come back from injury more often, having a stormer#LEIvULS

Like a hot knife through butter, Springbok Manie Libbok steps his way to a sensational solo try as the Stormers claimed a win over the Dragons. It is seriously difficult not to like Libbok, who is pure magic at the moment.

Not to be outdone, here’s Johan Goosen doing his best Libbok impersonation as he dances his way through the defensive line. The Bulls playmaker was on song and showed an impressive turn in form. Music to coach Jake White’s ears.

Pure GAS!! Niall Murray showed outrageous pace for a second-row to run half the field and score despite cover defenders. That is some moment from the Connacht man.

Retired rugby player turned DJ. James Haskell on the decks with his youngster in hand. Judging from his baby’s expression there is not much approval for his skill set!
She is honestly the best!
I know she has no clue what’s going on but she will have never watched me play rugby so this is the next best thing. pic.twitter.com/cWQv6P40lv

A flashback now as a young James O’Connor makes an outrageous try-saving tackle. That blonde hair on O’Connor always spelt danger, but on this occasion, it was commitment, pace and sublime defending! A tackle that never gets old.
