Top interview with 'arrogant' Chris Ashton upon his return to the England squad

The trouble I have with his dive is that it just looks ridiculous. If he had some grace or got some air like Rokocoko or could do a flip or cart wheel or whatever like Cooper, or a hillarious dance like Cipriani once in a while, well, sure, no problem. But the dive looks like some uncoordinated fat kid scoring a try for the first time.

An example of why I don't like him - he did (perhaps only a mini version of) the dive scoring a losing try in the 80th minute of a test vs NZ last year. For what purpose? I cringe every time I see it.

Laurie Weeks sent off and banned for multiple punches on Jannie du Plessis

What did JdP say? It was just a push? Both of them seem shocked that they were carded, do they not know the refs saw the replay?

Sam Warburton says he's not scared of facing the New Zealand Haka

The referee blunders go both ways - just the ABs find a way to win even when they aren't getting the rub of the green.

The Wraparound from Rugby HQ - Weeks 15 & 16

"I love watching women's rugby. Doesn't she run well"

Haha, was he trying to be condescending or was it accidental?

Canadian Taylor Paris scores try from 105m out in PRO D2 Semi Final

I assume the ball was over the goal line so ruck is over and it's ok for the player to strip the ball on the ground. And if not, I'm so glad the TMO didn't go back 105m and ruin a perfectly good try. The Hurricanes also scored one of the tries of the year the other day, only for a marginal forward pass to ruin it.

Friday Funnies - James Haskell goes into meltdown

Funny as this was, I'm calling hoax. There's a clip online of Haskell doing a Thomas Gray impression a couple of years ago (or is it the other way around?)

Second Rower Sam Whitelock scores unbelievable solo try vs the Reds

No on all accounts. It was just the camera angles.

Konia doesn't seem particularly bothered by the tackle, just annoyed at losing the ball

Get Excited For The Rugby World Cup, Less Than Six Months To Go

There was some IRB RWC ad last year that excluded NZ. It made front page news and we all took it personally. From memory Ashley Johnson was representing SA so now it's your turn to feel shunned.

Get Excited For The Rugby World Cup, Less Than Six Months To Go

Are those actually the lyrics, if I win, lose or draw, it's a victory for all? England getting their excuses in early?
