Social Media WrapUp: South Africa, Slo-Mo, And Momoa

This is the first weekend in a while that the United States 7s machine aren’t the headline. This week in the social media universe the mighty All-Blacks stumbled, England rumbled, and the Arrows eked out a comeback win.

The mighty All Blacks 7s fell to the Lions of Spain in pool play of the Vancouver leg of the HSBC World Series. 

Then the world stopped spinning. 

Nope, actually Spain went on to take 13th. While New Zealand took 5th and remains second in the standings.

You can’t blame New Zealand for dropping one match. They had Jason Momoa and his luscious locks hovering around them all weekend. Should’ve thrown Aquaman in there for a run.

South Africa took gold in Vancouver and Selvyn Davids turned World Rugby’s ‘ball tracker’ into a Picasso painting with this bit of creativity from the boot.


Then Selvyn Davids takes an exquisite angle to hawk down Aminiasa Tuimaba. Two massive plays in one match.

England Eaters

It seems like each week now there is an England player that absolutely dominates the stat sheet. This week it is Brad Shields.

 England will need Ireland’s help to a Six Nations title, but performances like Brad Shields’ will certainly influence World Cup roster decisions.

Arrows Hang Around

The Arrows put a massive stamp on their inaugural season and eight match road tour. Toronto rattled off 24 unanswered points to snatch the match from the San Diego Legion. The top five teams in the league have yet to separate themselves. Toronto is still very much in the hunt at 3-3 with eight consecutive home matches to finish.

Showing the Locks Some Love

Here on the FloRugby social media wrap-up we love to shine our spotlight on the spectacular plays of rugby’s lumbering forwards. 

This week the Bristol Bears lock duo link up for a long-striding try.

Slow-Mo Joe

Joe Cokanisaga makes the defense look like they're a foot shorter and running in slow-motion.

The Fijians offload like this in sevens, but they have way more space. Joe has 29 other players flying around him, while he's executing this. What a ballsy guy.
