Having played in a beast of a Test Match last weekend, Tendai Mtawarira will make history in Bloemfontein as he runs out for his 100th match in the green and gold jersey. It was a close shave for him and his teammates, as they narrowly beat England. The Springboks have the security of being one-nil up in the series, so it's all to play for in this vital 2nd Test Match.

Kudos to the Springbok Sevens team, who not only clinched the Paris tournament, they also pipped Fiji to the overall series title, thus winning the tournament back to back, an incredible achievement. At one stage it was looking highly unlikely, as they stared down the barrel of defeat to minnows Spain. However, once past that hurdle, and with Fiji bowing out early from the competition, the Blitzbokke overcame powerhouses, New Zealand and England to give Neil Powell and his men the overall series win, congratulations to all of the squad.

Lastly, there is the small matter of a FIFA World Cup kicking off in Russia this week. This year's edition looks like the swansong tournament for two of the greatest ever footballers to grace the soccer field. Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, and Argentina's Lionel Messi are both desperate to add this blue riband event to their CV, as this is the benchmark that both Maradona and Pele have achieved. Having won the Euro's with his Portuguese team, Ronaldo is one up on his Argentinian nemesis. However, it's the World Cup they both seek.
