The rugby captain whose handshake with Nelson Mandela came to define the progress of post-apartheid South Africa pays tribute to his idol.
The RFU relived England's rugby triumph of 10 years ago, moment by moment, in a live tweet stream complete with highlights - and that kick.
Family of Sam and Joel Tomkins faced with a dilemma on Saturday when siblings play for England at the same time, but in different matches.
Former South African rugby captain Francois Pienaar recalled the moment he met Nelson Mandela before the team won the 1995 Rugby World Cup.
Pienaar said he was shocked to see Mandela wearing the Springboks jersey, adding, "He turned around and my number was on his back.
"That was me. I would run through walls [for Mandela], I would play until I can't play."
David Cameron lost a bet with his New Zealand counterpart on the rugby - and he must pay for it with an pair of cufflinks.
England's 22-30 loss to the All Blacks at Twickenham yesterday means that under the terms of his wager with Prime Minister John Key, Mr Cameron must wear Kiwi cufflinks when he appears in the House of Commons.
He wrote on Twitter:
The New Zealand prime minister joked after the win:
.@david_cameron Dear David. Those NZ cuff links will look great. Please send pics.
The Duke of Cambridge has arrived at the Millennium Stadium to watch Wales play South Africa for the Prince William Cup.
William, vice patron of the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU), arrived at Cardiff Heliport this afternoon ahead of the hotly anticipated 5.30pm match.
In a statement before the match, William - who will present the Prince William Cup following the match - described the Welsh side as "special".
"It has been an amazing year for Welsh rugby with our triumph at the Six Nations and the Welsh contribution to the British and Irish Lions' historic success in Australia."
William added that he was glad the WRU was taking the time to honour veterans with poppies and a minute's silence, ahead of Remembrance Sunday.
Former St Helens, Hull and Wakefield full-back Steve Prescott has died from stomach cancer aged 39, the Rugby Football League announced today.
A minute's silence was held at Saturday's afternoon's England and Fiji World Cup match and another tribute will take place at Ireland's match against Australia this evening.
Prescott represented both nations - in Hull and Limerick.
RFL chief executive Nigel Wood said: "It is with deep sadness that we have learned of the death of Steve Prescott. Our thoughts are with his family at this terribly sad time.
"The word 'hero' is over-used in sport but Steve was just that: a role model for every young rugby league player during his distinguished playing career and an absolute inspiration to all of us off the field".
Brothers Sam and Joel Tomkins are set to represent England simultaneously in both rugby league and union this afternoon.
Sam will turn out for his national rugby league side in the World Cup match against Ireland in Huddersfield, while his older brother Joel makes his rugby union international debut against Australia at Twickenham.
