Manu Tuilagi admits to assaulting police officers, won't be part of Rugby World Cup

Like said before,
-Worst of news for Tuilagi
-Best one for England as Lancaster will may be able to impose a Bath trio (Ford-Eastmond-Jos eph)

Hope it won't mean 'open door' to Burgess option, another brick in the wall.

Toulon's Xavier Chiocci scores a great prop try against Castres in the Top 14

The future loosehead prop of France if he can improve his scrummaging.
Very skilled and powerful ball in hand but still inexperienced in the dark prop arts

Sergio Parisse harshly red carded as Brice Dulin gets tipped up in the air

A clear harsh call to put a red card on this action as Dulin unlucky felt on Parisse and then on his shoulder.

In fact, Garcès could have sanctionned 3 differents fouls: offside by parisse, penalty for leroux, penalty for contact in-the-air on Dulin, but never red!

Ps: How can people say Dulin faked? He was injured 2 times in 2 years on this shoulder...

Toulon claim unprecedented treble of European Cup titles with victory over Clermont

Money helps, agree
But does it build a team spirit and success? absolutely not.

Take the Racing. They spent more money than any others clubs since 3 years and their results aren't so extraordinary. The force of Toulon is their president: Boudjellal who have achieved to revive the club identity and communicate a winning spirit... to guys like who have won everything.

Toulon claim unprecedented treble of European Cup titles with victory over Clermont

I clearly don't refer to people over here.

Which team had more french players? Clermont. Does it explain their defeat...?
The experience of Toulon was just the difference.

I haven't any particular sympathy towards the Toulon of Boudjellal, but i'm always annoyed when i read that Toulon kills rugby valors, the french selection or the european cup interest.

Toulon claim unprecedented treble of European Cup titles with victory over Clermont

Rugby is a simple game. 30 men chase a ball for 80 minutes and at the end,
Toulon always win.

Sad for Clermont, but Toulon was the strongest side of the day. Bastareaud, Armitage and Mitchell were instrumental in defence, lethal in attack. When the jaunards never seemed really to impose their game at crucial moments, just waiting for Fofana or Abendanon wonders. Logical and deserved.

On a side note, pretty amused by the usual ignorant comments read since few hours resuming Toulon like a bench of m€rcenari€s and France as a rugby nation in decline. Sour grapes never give pretty objective analysis.

France national team poor results are more linked to mediocre management and agreement between Top14 clubs and the FFR... rather to Toulon 'fantasy team' strategy. How can u compare Boudjellal project to revive his hometown club, with a football club named Chelsea ?
