6. The Six Nations’ Tribute – a minute’s applause at each match in Europe

7. Joost van der Westhuizen: A Life of Two Halves

A documentary by Nomad Media TV in which Joost talks about his transition from Rugby World Cup winner to Motor Neuron Disease sufferer. It’s a “story of how a man, who has won it all, sees an incurable disease as the opportunity to, ‘fix my life 110%’.”

Btw – the video starts just after 10’… so if you don’t want to miss anything, take it back to the beginning.
