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.

England skipper Sarah Hunter created history in the Women’s Rugby World Cup quarter-final by earning her 138th Test cap, becoming the most capped Red Roses player in history. Fantastic achievement!

65,188! What a number! A new record attendance for Japan in their Test against the All Blacks. The game is growing at a rapid rate in the country, as the strong performance against New Zealand suggests. A giant of the game loading…

The All Blacks pay their respects to the fans in Tokyo after a thrilling Test match in Japan. Respect and honour are cornerstones of what makes rugby union a special game.

Wow, that’s a scathing review of Scotland’s game against the Wallabies. No prisoners taken, and neither was a win for the Scottish.

The Wallabies belt out their national anthem in the changing room after a narrow win against Scotland in Edinburgh. Brilliant passion, but they certainly will not be winning The Voice.

No commentary error is allowed anymore with the Wallabies side! Such a great idea to have players come forward with how to pronounce their names. It will certainly help fans around the world for Mark Nawaqanitawase.

Another Gloucester win, another singing celebration. Brilliant from the Premiership side, who deserve to sing with joy after their 38-22 win over Exeter Chiefs.

A bizarre ending to a good try. Glasgow Warriors’ Rufus McLean is completely done by the bounce of the ball, gets nutmegged and still scores. A comedic try, indeed!

What an absolute nightmare. A pet peeve for fans globally. Surely, this can be avoided. Similar kits in rugby must go as it completely takes away from the game.

Have a go at this Sale Sharks pumpkin carving in the spirit of Halloween. Rugby meets creativity meets the spooky season. Love it.

The man, the myth, the legendary full kit Alex Goode in stores now! Fantastic Halloween costume for all the Saracens fans out there. The image on the front of the packing is priceless.
