Huge impact in 'Lingerie Bowl' Gridiron game

I still think it'd be funnier to make every professional prop wear the same outfit and play 7s.

South Africa maintain home record with dramatic last ditch win over Wales

It's our fault, we shouldn't have fed the troll. Which as far as I can tell, is what you are. From now on, no more troll feeding.

Australia complete clean sweep against France with Sydney win

The SANZAR teams are leading the world in terms of excitement. Nobody can match them for speed of play and clinical finishing. At the same time the Northern Hemisphere has slightly more competitive leagues because of the threat of relegation. The two styles of game are different considering the weather that prevails for most of the playing year.

I love Rugby. I love England. I am still happy to enjoy watching matches involving the Big 3 and enjoying their immensely entertaining style of play. I would desperately like the Northern Hemisphere teams to play the same way, because I find it entertaining, but ultimately I just want all national teams to represent their nations well:

- bleed for their jersey
- fight for the win
- show the best of Rugby values
- entertain

Why the hell would I hate the All Blacks when they play with such pride in the shirt. I don't think there is another country in the World which matches them for passion in the shirt. Why would I hate the South Africans with their unbelievably tough version of the game. Those guys are hard as brass tacks. Why would I hate the Australians? Those guys represent a small nation in terms of population, they are behind Rugby League, NRL and cricket in terms of popularity, and they still put together such an awesome team.

Why would I hate the Welsh? They bring such passion to the game. For every Mike Phillips there is a Leigh Halfpenny. How can anybody hate the Irish, a team pulled together from across the sectarian divide, which sings an anthem based on unity? How can anyone hate the Scottish, full of pride and a rich history?

How can you not want to see Japan, Argentina, Canada and the USA improve and get better? They're entertaining and they play with determination.

I'm so fucking tired of these bullshit NH/SH arguments. I love this sport and I believe everybody else here does. We all get drunk together after the game, and enjoy the spectacle. This is not fucking soccer.

Australia complete clean sweep against France with Sydney win

I'm with Future_is_Black. England will only ever be better than Australia and South Africa when we beat them regularly. England are improving but Rugby does not stand still. I'm happy with our level in the world being measured every four years.

Until then, as we do not regularly beat the Souther Hemisphere teams, I'm happy letting them take the credit. We must be a team which bases its success on substantive results, not just hypothetical matches.

I hope his form continues into the World Cup. He could set it alight and be one of the main stars.

Hyperbole isn't wasted on you, is it?

As Canadian content is aware, because he watched the video and because he didn't arrive on RD ten minutes ago, Mike Phillips is something of a repeat offender. He cannot let a fight go without getting involved. He can't let a little bit of glaring go without it being a fight. He is basically as badly behaved as my two year old during one of her mood swings.

However to help you out, once you discount any human being who has actually raped, murdered, had sexual encounters with children, and become hardened to the world of crime, then Mike Phillips is left looking distinctly more unpleasant than most.

That was indeed a disgusting moment. I don't see the different between this elbow, the one in your video, or a punch.

Mike Phillips is surely one of the most unpleasant human beings to have ever walked this planet.

Midweek Madness - Japanese player loses the ball over the tryline

I thought the same as you lot, but I thought it looked like it went forward. I also think the defender should be given the benefit of the doubt in this situation - certainly at the lower leagues, without TMO, if the ball is lost in a tackle over the tryline then I would rather see it given as a turnover. Once over the try line I think the attacking player has the responsibility to look after the ball. But I appreciate that isn't what the laws say.

It could be worse, you could be listening to English commentary.
