Star studded Barbarians too good for England XV at Twickenham

What was your comment about the BBs wearing 'some socks from the two teams before' about? I didn't understand.

Star studded Barbarians too good for England XV at Twickenham

Absolutely. As 10stonenumber10 says below, this was basically a competition between two Baa-bah outfits. I think the England XV acquitted themselves admirably and they've shown that the future is bright. I think Lancaster is just the man to have in charge of England, because I get the impression that every player in this match in a white shirt knew that they had a chance if they played well enough. Give Lancaster his due - he seems happy to give anyone a chance and everyone knows their position is under threat.

Leinster beat Glasgow to retain the RaboDirect Pro12 title for 2014

Sorry, not Young, I misread the link and assumed Ashley Young was the other player. I have since realised that Ashley Young is instead an Association Footballer, with a perchant for diving, bless 'im.

@Ihatemondays and @mtheg - I didn't see the dive, I assume this is it:

I agree, it looks pathetic. I would be delighted to see a player sent off for that. It has absolutely no place in Rugby. McCarthy is a another cheat.

I can't decide which I think is worse - Habana's dive after a late block from Farrell (which was worth a penalty at best) or McCarthy's dive after not being punched by Young (which would have been a red card had it connected with his head). From the crappy link I've posted above I can't tell how much of an air shot it was.

Certainly there is no place for either action in Rugby. I would happily see each player given a yellow card for that and I think the IRB needs to be clear about it, given two incidents in high profile games.

Nick Cummins' amazing try saving tackle against the Crusaders

Rumour has it that it was a picture of Nick Cummins vigorously abusing himself while Bryan Habana threw himself to the floor, screaming.

Aaaaah, it's good to have the real Sean Maloney back. This guy cracks me up. Right now the funniest guys involved in Rugby all seem to be coming from Australia.

Owen Williams banned for six weeks for making contact with Luther Burrell's eyes

It'll be interesting to see some better angles. 6 weeks seems extremely low for gouging, so I guess that they thought it was something else? It'll be interesting to see more.
