James Horwill cleared after alleged stamp on Alun-Wyn Jones in first Test

Folly stood in North's way to block him off the ball. The small push that North gave him was fair enough. Catch a grip of yourself fella

Italy stun France with another Six Nations upset win in Rome

Ok. I have a few things to say.
1) why did he play Fofana at 14. Himself & Rougerie are playing great stuff at Clermont together & because of that week in week out playing, they know what the others going to do.
2)are we (the public) not absolutely spoiled in the 6nations for watching absolutely fantastic No 8's. I mean u go through the 6teams
Heaslip
Morgan
Parisse
Faletau
Beattie (or Denton) &
Picamoles (harinordiquoy before him)
I mean these are some serious players. As an Irishman, I'll be totally non biased & say that Parisse has to be the best with Picamoles a v close 2nd. Anyone else any opinions??

Ireland hold off Welsh comeback to claim win in Six Nations opener

How about BOD 12 & Cave 13. Or Luke Marshall at 12. Yes that's a big call, but we need to find a replacement fir D'Arcy.

Also, did anyone else think that Rory Brst didn't come in at the side for his yellow card? I thought Poite was v inconsistent in his refereeing yday. But what else do u expect from RP.

As an Irishman, I partly agree. Zebo is great going forward, but he isn't so hot in defence. Tbh, if Bowe, Luke Fitzgerald, Gilroy & Zebo are all fit, I'd have him bottom of the pile. yes he's exciting going forward, but not yet the as good an all round player as others.

My only gripe is when is Kidney going to waken up to the fact that Keith earls is not international standard centre. Darren Cave & Ferguson McFadden are far better options there esp McFadden at inside centre. Hell, I'd have played BOD at 12, Sexton at 13 & then Madigan at 10 when Darcy was injured. DK needs to waken up a wee bit.
