I've not commented much on here recently, but what a thread. Nice work gents.

Clermont flanker Viktor Kolelishvili shoves referee Wayne Barnes

Short ban to send a message. There are all sorts of things he could have done instead, like shout and gesture. It was a completely bizarre way to behave. I would imagine Barnes didn't send him off or card him because he couldn't have been completely sure that he hadn't missed something. Personally I'd like to see him get a ban.

I wish I could like this more than once. My kids are wetting themselves laughing.

Crunching tackle plants fullback into the ground in Florida, USA

That was just an outstanding tackle. Nothing wrong with that whatsoever. Legs wanted to keep going, upper body was having none of it. The tackler has his head below the other chap's shoulder, and doesn't lift at all. Just an absolute beauty of a tackle.

Awful spear tackle sparks huge brawl in French third division

It's definitely rare, yes. Hopefully Georgia will continue to supply us with more of this.

Jamie Henry repeats heroics of last year with yet another unbelievable dive for the corner

Brilliant try, simply brilliant. I also really like seeing the tackling player actually getting his arms around rather than just smashing him with a shoulder. Everything about that was champagne.

Red 12 is worth a watch. He starts on the left when it all kicks off. As far as I can see he just bounces around, stamping on legs here and there. He deserved a smack if anyone did.

A look at the USA's preparations for the new Sevens Series

I'd love to see SBW get into the squad. Hopefully a few other big names from across the 15-man game will follow him. It will be an outstanding tournament and can only be good for world rugby.

And why don't you leave commenting to people who understand grammar?

Technically mate, we call rugby "football" too, because it's called rugby football. We then have the two sub-divisions of rugby union and rugby league. You've also got association football, from which the name 'soccer' is derived, and Australian rules football. All of these sports are called football because you are allowed to kick the ball.

If the USA ever decide to take rugby union properly, they'll no doubt field an incredibly impressive team due to the sheer number of athletes they produce. The skills might not be there straight away, but it's ignorant and lazy to assume that because American football is very physical those guys lack handling skills. That is obviously not true if you watch it for any period of time.

Now I'm going to assume you're only here because you're a troll, so why don't you piss off back under your bridge? I'm probably going to see your future comments, but I want you to know that when I don't respond to you further, it's because I see you as a colossal waste of everyone's time.
