2:12, so thats North and Savea Farrell has managed to knock over recently. Say what you will about him, the lad knows how to put in a good shot.

Are you serious? I don't know about the one on North but that one on Savea was the most obvious shoulder charge I've ever seen.

I agree he's a great tackler for an outhalf but here wasn't a great example of it.

There is no denying Farrell is a solid defender. Personally I feel this is where he stands above other fly halves in the country, but probably the only area he does, and damn right he should too, over 6ft and not far off 100kg in pre-season, that is pretty big for a 10 in today's game. A true pupil of Wilkinson.

A not-very-good tackle from an excellent tackler.

The thing is with this shoulder barge here on Savea - I believe he got away with it didn't he? ie no penalty? So, although it was actually a shit tackle it put the bloke on his arse and I suspect may have made him think twice before attacking his channel again, (actually in Savea's case this may not be true!).

My point is sometimes a slightly dirty hit, if you can get away with it, is worth it for the psychological boost.

Loved seeing Tuilagi being brushed off like a fly. Nonu showing him up there.

It wasn't that great, nonu pushed him in the direction of his own momentum and a lot of the time big guys topple easier in those situations.
Give me the video of Savea slamming Yarde.

Poor video punctuated by passé cheeky music

Guys,
I`d just thought I`d pass by and tell you something our club is involved in. We are raising money to get Nonu a free plastic surgery operation for his face. Soon you will be invited to like a page on Facebook and with your `like` Nonu will have in no time a new face.

Dear Mr Dump,
Favour - please can the Grants Whisky ad be set to only play the sound if you click on it? No problem with the ad and it's great to see Geoff Hurst having a laugh with the boys. And it's a nice video, very enjoyable - "yeah, Geoff Hurst - ask your grandad" - love it. I don't even mind the fact I've been served the bloody thing about 50 times now. It's just the automatic sound that's getting on my tits.
Many thanks!
