The Farah Palmer Cup is at the semi final stage--who will reach the final?
It doesn’t get any better than this. Another Saturday full of rugby union (insert happy face here). Normally, Last Word On Sports would be celebrating Mitre 10 Cup or The Rugby Championship. Yes, of course there are three quality Mitre 10 Cup matches being played, with a weeks break for International rugby but importantly, today’s focus is …

(No category for Mitre10 Cup) but these matches are tremendous examples of NZ rugby.
Waikato hang on by the 'skin of their teeth' for a 20-20 draw
The Ranfurly Shield will stay in the Waikato, but it didn't come without some late controversy that forced referees to make a bold call.

Hooray! The boys are off the mark. Five tries against a quite poor 'Quins. We''ll take 'em.

One big downside is the red card for Tomas Francis for kicking Danny Care with his shin. The first red Chiefs have received.

From the UK Premiership, the 'Foreign Legion' add plenty to the competition and to the sides.
Our MVP might be given away by the picture....any guesses?
With an increasing amount of Southern Hemisphere players in the Premiership, it's worth having a closer look at their impact on England's top-flight league.

Pics from the Pumas v Wallies.
An entertaining game but not one the Wallies should be too pleased with. A bunch of tries. Then a snooze. Then wake up to collect the win.
Both local players were good and this could have been a game that went badly given how well the Pumas play when they are "on"..

Rugby Championship  - 
 
An amazing statistic--only the second victory for Australia for 2016.
I should repeat that...2nd win!
It will help them, but only so much
This in fact was only the second victory for Australia this season, so it was a muted success that only helps so much.
