James Haskell loses his cool with Joe Marler after water and choke incidents

Haskell behaving like a french player in the 90's here.
Both players should have received yellow cards. Move on.

Rising star Anthony Belleau impresses in latest Toulon victory

Has France finally found the sort of flyhalf they've been looking for?
No.

Simply because France prefers to play with 2 scrum-halves.

Schalk Brits angered at cynical play by Kahn Fotuali'i

The problem is not Fotuali'i attempt to gain a cheap penalty, it's his conscience, really.
The main problem is how refs judge it in different ways.
Barnes decided to penalize Brits, but i also remember Parra cynically attempting to win a penalty in the same fashion (vs saracens, again) Nigel Owens didn't give a penalty and let the game continue.

So.... i don't buy the "it's a bad law but it's the law"
We're not talking about a dangerous tackle, but a cynical tactic to put pressure on the refs.
Brits has a big mouth, but had all reasons to be gutted

Series drawn as All Blacks and British & Irish Lions decider ends in stalemate

Absolutely not.
SBW was deservedly sent off.
I point that All Blacks were their worst enemy during this Tour with this red card and some unlucky or clumsy penalties given.

Series drawn as All Blacks and British & Irish Lions decider ends in stalemate

From the SBW red card to this penalty, the All Blacks can feel unlucky to draw these series, but their home advantage should have been the x factor. So fair play to Lions, as they find a way to score through 40-50m penalties and some ref decisions. You provoke your luck.

On a side note, this young Jordie Barrett looks very suchlike a certain John Kirwan.
