Flying Chiefs winger James Lowe on defying the odds with arthritis

I suffered from a chronic form during my first year at university and it was devastating. I was running track, playing rugby and squash at the time and next thing I knew I couldn't walk and the GP was coming to my house to syringe fluid from my joints

Force scrumhalf Ian Prior red carded for ugly tip-tackle on Tim Nanai-Williams

The correct decision is made, but how come the ref has to refer it to the TMO as it's six foot from him? And why does it take so long to make a decision? It's pretty clear that it's a red card offence from the off and watching it more times often make it more ambiguous

How Valuable is Manu Tuilagi To England's World Cup Ambitions?

Getting caught by Smith only proved that he's not a winger cos he's not quick enough. There are thousands of club wingers all over the world who would have had the gas to finish that!

If they can get the 12 thing working it would be great. Don't have much opportunity to do it though....

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Francois Steyn banned for 5 weeks after rescinded red card is overturned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Francois Steyn banned for 5 weeks after rescinded red card is overturned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

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

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
