Barnstorming Pierre Spies run sets up Bismarck du Plessis try

I don't know how he can run that fast with what are, presumably, massive balls between his legs.

I feel so much less of a man.

I think I'd do a Sexton instead.

The man is clearly a monster.

Billy Vunipola celebrates Grand Slam with classic Backstreet Boys lip sync video bomb

I saw Watson and Fofana exchanging shirts. It's great to see the respect between these guys.

Ugly fight erupts between French and British navies in annual clash

You know, watching two military rugby teams fight doesn't seem like such a big deal. I mean, these are guys who have had to learn how to get incredibly aggressive when it's necessary. It must be quite difficult to turn that off when things kick off. The 'code' of supporting your mates is more important than blood, because the next time it happens might be when lives really are on the line. You can't spend years having that drummed into you and then switch it off in this sort of environment.

I'm not saying it's a good thing, but I think it's understandable. Add in the unbelievable historic rivalry between these two navies, and I'm not surprised it kicked off.

Rugby brawls may not be pretty, and aren't desirable, but at least the two teams had a beer together afterwards and all was forgiven.

Johnny Sexton blasted by fans and players for playacting

Hi Jesus, long time fan,

Firstly, I'd disagree with your eloquent dismissal of those who called him on his behaviour as being 'rent a mouth losers', given that these are his peers in professional rugby who have a sound understanding of the culture of the game at the top level.

Secondly, you're right, there is no way of proving that he didn't have a massive, utterly debilertating neck spasm shortly after throwing his hands up. Perhaps the sudden upward motion of his arms as he appealed to the referee dislodged a nerve. I mean, his upper body (if not his neck) did hit the ground pretty hard when he was utterly destroyed by Dunbar. I mean, I might have been hurt too if someone had tossed me so casually to one side.

I'm with DrG. Guirado was lining Vunipola up for the hit, not Cole. He could have made a better hit on Cole had he been aiming for him. Therefore the 'obstruction' has no material outcome, and a try was awarded.
