Julian Savea continues to draw comparisons to the great Jonah Lomu

Savea is a great player who has higher skill levels than Lomu. However, Lomu was bigger and faster, as well as never being fully fit because of illness. Lomu was like having a mixture of Billy Vunipola and Folau on the wing. If Lomu wasn't as quick he would have been a number 8, if he wasn't as big he still could have played wing. I like Savea, but he's not Lomu

Francois Steyn banned for 5 weeks after rescinded red card is overturned

Tbh, the Bismarck was pretty bad! However, i'll say it quietly because I'm not trying to legitimise tip tackles, but I can't remember players getting injured because of them.....

Francois Steyn banned for 5 weeks after rescinded red card is overturned

It's a problem I've had a while with citing one person for a gang tackle. How can you say that it is one tacklers responsibility? It is the same as penalising a player for a high tackle if it happens because the attacking player is tackle a split second before and is on the way down? It's a difficult position to take, you either punish one player or none

Courtney Lawes lays into another unsuspecting flyhalf, this time Jules Plisson

Should we take away some of Shane Williams' tries because he beat a tight 5 forward to score? It's a game of mismatches and how you play those mismatches decides whether you win the game. Big guy v small guy, fast guy v slow guy. Take that away and we have rugby league.

I fascinated by the statement that you don't like his character?! Judging someone via your interpretation of their actions on the pitch and then calling that their character is possibly symbolic of the social media age! As a player Lawes also has a very good disciplinary record, he was banned during the last world cup for reckless use of the knee, but apart from that he's never been in any trouble as far as I know. So disliking him for flattening people is strange, cos that's a large part of the appeal of rugby for many people.

England part of three-horse race for the title after victory over Scotland

I've had boots tackled off a few times and scored at least once with one boot on. I like to think myself as the same as the lizard the leaves behind its tail when it get grabbed by a predator

Brian Moore was going to give Lawes MoM, but Ben Youngs was put on the screen so he improvised!

Controversial yellow card for James Lowe tackle leads to Highlanders upset

Fekitoa put himself in a vulnerable position by trying the hurdle the tackle, not Lowe. He went for an eponymous tackle.

Controversial yellow card for James Lowe tackle leads to Highlanders upset

I think people's issue is that the tackled player made and illegal move and then it was referred to the TMO who then after having all the evidence, made the wrong call. Next time some one makes a slide tackle in football will you call that a tip tackle?
