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

There was zero lifting from Lawes. Plisson just folded. If you lift a player then you have a responsibility to return them to earth safely. Lawes just hit him sickeningly hard.

Inspirational leader Sergio Parisse on the Art of Number Eight

Shame. It'd be nice to think that you got a little something-something.

Inspirational leader Sergio Parisse on the Art of Number Eight

If you want a mathematical explanation, which I'm sure we all do, it's largely due to the fact that no team or player can stay on top form/uninjured forever. A great player will have videos made about them because they are playing really well, but maintaining that level of excellence is impossible most of the time. Therefore there tends to be a correlation between heightened publicity and a drop in form. In the United States I believe it has been named the 'Sports Illustrated effect'.

Midweek Madness - Moldovan prop's drop goal attempt doesn't reach the tryline

It's good to know that I can kick drop goals like a professional rugby player.

Jonathan Davies sends Johnny Sexton to the turf with a powerful hand-off

Bugger, realise I wrote 'signing' rather than 'singing'. You obviously wouldn't hear people signing.

I have however reached my inclusiveness quota for the day. #MiddleClassAchievementPoints

They don't realise how uplifting it can be to hear 10 people signing Swing Low, Sweet Chariot. How are you meant to pick out individual voices when 70,000 people are singing at the same time? How do they harmonise? I mean, sure, it's loud, but whatever happened to finesse?

The man would have been a terrifying centurian back in the day. I'm a big fan of his attitude on the pitch and his skill levels. At the same time, we have seen a few promotional videos of late, so I hope Mr Dump is getting some money for them.

Hi kevini89. Why use the word 'gay' in a negative sense? I've yet to watch the video, but I'm assuming I'm going to see Parisse engaging in a sexual act with another man.

On the other hand, you might just mean 'bad' or 'cheesy'. In which case you might want to expand your vocabulary, because 'gay' doesn't mean bad. In fact, it can mean a range of things, but none of those means bad.

I'm now going to watch this video and will promptly apologise if it contains scenes of homosexual activity.

Awesome roar by the crowd, must have been unbelievably loud knowing the Millenium Stadium.

Controversial yellow card for James Lowe tackle leads to Highlanders upset

We've seen Habana 'milking' incidents in the past. I personally believe he has thrown his upper body towards the ground when he has been picked up in an attempt to get players sent off. Now clearly this is different, as the tackled player hasn't done anything to attempt to get the tackler into trouble. I guess I'm trying to support your original point.
