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.
We kick off with one of the game’s leading players in social media, Bristol Bears. How about this rendition of Adele’s Someone Like You?
🎹 What a way to sign off the tour! 🇫🇷

Continuing off the field and a day before leading Wales to a win over England, Alun Wyn Jones made the year of this young Welsh supporter.

To the action and Dan Biggar was named man-of-the-match after a strong outing, this coming after he was criticised by a former Wales wing.

Well deserved win for @WelshRugbyUnion Dan Biggar showing his mental strength and control at 10. Not that he needed to prove it to anyone.

South Africa were also winners on Saturday as Sbu Nkosi’s impressive double helped them beat Argentina. This was out of the top drawer.

It wasn’t such a good night for Scotland in Nice, however, as they went down to France. Thistle Rugby Pod clearly found it a tough watch.

Finally we go to South Africa’s schoolboy scene and this chase back from a prop that led to Franco Knoetze’s long-range try was excellent.
