A lot of people saying because there was lack of evidence of a bite that Sheehan should be charged. Where were you all in 2005 calling for O'Driscoll to be charged when there was a lack of evidence in the aftermath of him having his shoulder busted. Lack of video evidence doesn't mean it didn't happen

The Tongans have no respect for the laws of physics. They produce Jonah, a winger bigger than most loosies, then this #8 who is bigger than most props, and Taumalolo, a prop who scores more tries than most wingers. Sick

He's not so fat but what an incredible front-rower try. Couldn't the commentators at least get a little excited about it?

If SBW thought he was the mutt's nuts before the fight, he knows now that he's not. He fought well, better than I expected, but he hopefully realises now that he's not as gifted in boxing as he is in rugby. Time to focus on back-to-back rugby league and union world cups

Since 2011 I think we've gotten over it but it's still a reflex to smile when we this video.
And yes, the French are just as upset about Joubert (go youtube and check some of the comments about the final), although maybe not as much as the saffers about Bryce

You can't just put on seven sprinters and expect to win. It might work at first but other teams would figure it out quick enough. You'd potentially have poor defence, poor ball retention at the ruck and other teams would eventually learn to close you down. Was interesting to see the NZ #11 was oblivious and gave him too much space but would have learnt not to do it again. In the same way that a sprinter can just run sideways then straighten to get around a slower player, a bigger player could do the same to smash through a sprinter.
Don't worry, skill will prevail. I hope, or us Kiwis have a bleak future

Sounded like he wanted to say Doogie Howser, MD but to his credit, did correct himself later in the clip

I think he may actually be half Tongan. Maybe the ref didn't know that though

I hear what you're saying, Beast had no chance to play pro rugby for Zim but on the flip side, guys like Strauss or Waldrom both knew that they had almost no chance of playing for their national teams either. Must be frustrating for those two in particular knowing that not only aren't they best in the country but not even in their own families. I don't blame them for wanting to play rugby at the highest level and can't blame the countries for picking them.
But Stander, Rathbone, this is a problem that can be very easily solved by increasingly qualification to 5 or 6 years. A 15 year old immigrant can play at 20 or 21, a 20yo can play at 25/26. Not ideal, but seems fair.
I am against what RSA was talking about doing though, making <20 teams the national A side to prevent those guys moving offshore. Guys like Harris and Maitland had no chance to play for NZ so let them go elsewhere if they qualify. You can't have 20-30 new ABs each year so why lock in 20-30 annually based on decisions they make as teens
