The November internationals once again took centre stage in the rugby calendar this weekend as South Africa, New Zealand and Argentina joined Australia on their European tour.

And it was the Southern Hemisphere nations who, for the large part, showed just why teams on their side of the equator are currently seen as being among the best in the sport.

Particularly important yellow cards were shown at the Millennium Stadium and Aviva Stadium this weekend, while there were other challenges that just fellow on the right side of the law.

Samoa and the Springboks rank among the most physical in this edition, where Joe Tekori, George Pisi and Francois Louw all showed glimpses of their nastier sides.
