Dance steps, a moving anthem and a new senator

It’s time for Planet Rugby’s Sunday Social, your original recap of serious and less serious talking points from last week’s action.

We start in Chile, where their national team players were visited by the country’s president, Gabriel Boric, to congratulate them on qualifying for next year’s Rugby World Cup in France.

Earlier in the week it was a fine day for former Western Force Wallabies, Brumbies and David Pocock when he was sworn in as an Independent Senator in the Australian Capital Territory.

Elsewhere, England and Saracens second line Maro Itoje was in Nairobi where he spent time with the Atlas charity and quickly received great support during a line-up exercise.

Itoje also presented medals to underprivileged children who participated in the program and one youngster stole the show with some skillful dance moves.

In New Zealand there was a reunion for All Blacks Roger Tuivasa-Sheck and Ardie Savea, in the third Test against Ireland earlier this month – 11 years after they also played together at the neo schools side -zeelandese.

In Ireland, Simon Zebo honored Munster’s new signing Malakai Fekitoa during pre-season training.

Still on the training theme, the guys from England Rugby have shared this video of Freddie Steward, Joe Cokanasiga and Jack Nowell doing their version of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslett’s famous scene from the movie Titanic.

Meanwhile, with the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, journalist and sports commentator Rob Vickerman showed us some names of players included in the New Zealand Sevens team who were crowned champions at the 1998 Games in Kuala Lumpur. A few all-time greats on this list!

Elsewhere, there was plenty of passion on display during a moving rendition of the Welsh anthem at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium earlier this year. Goosebumps stuff!

While these Premiership players really enjoyed their time off over the summer.

And finally, while this player deserves a lot of praise for his tackling technique, he really needs to work on his timing.
