Wales claim the Triple Crown with nail biting win over England

I thought the exact same thing as I watched the video, but figured I'd missed something as no-one seems to be talking about it. The ref was playing penalty advantage on that final English attack, and I didn't see any evidence that he called advantage over before the "try" was scored. So if it was deemed held up, I think it should have gone back to the penalty regardless whether time was up by then or not. Unless going over the goal line for a potential score is considered a sufficient advantage?

Nathan Hines hangs onto two Ulster players

Incredible self-control from the two Ulster players not to lash out, but what disgraceful unsportsmanlike behaviour from the Clermont forward!

You know who else is good at doing this sneaky/cheaty off-the-ball stuff? The All Blacks are masters of it, particularly that man McCaw. I recall in the last Tri Nations 2011 match that a couple of ABs held down Pocock for something like 10+ seconds after a ruck, which gave them time to create an overlap and Nonu I think it was went over to score. Pocock the whole time was appealing to the touch judges but they didn't see it. Rugby doesn't need that crap...

Will Skinner red carded from the bench as Harlequins beat Toulouse

Didn't see the match, and don't have my rule book handy for this one.... If the substituted player was red-carded, did Quins have to pull another player off the pitch to make it 14? Or did they continue with 15 on the field?
