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

God, hitting 'like' to this comment felt so narcissistic. You know you are English when, sitting in a darkened kitchen at 6am, on your own, clicking 'like' on a nice comment about yourself feels arrogant.

Thanks. I'm trying to hide the fact that I know nothing about rugby.

World Rugby need to listen to us, because we could make rugby a lot safer and a lot more fun to watch at the drop of a hat. I vote that we replace the scrum with 'duck duck goose'. Quicker to get over and done with, less chance of injury, and it will be interesting to see what new way Brian Moore finds to get really, really angry.

Fair play to the Aussies for reporting it on the field. We need a zero tolerance approach to this. I work in a school and am forever telling the kids that they shouldn't use the word 'gay' as a negative word. More high-profile incidents like this can only help.

And he calls his mother twice a week, gives money to charity, is good with animals and respects his elders.

Excellent point, well made.

If Plisson was in a wheelchair and then Lawes had tackled him like that I'd have been pretty unimpressed.

How would the keyboard heroes react if Lawes had tackled Plisson's guide dog like that? Eh? Eh? Lawes should spend time in jail because nobody, and I mean nobody, should be allowed to get away with tackling a hypothetically wheelchair-bound blind individual.

I want Oliver to be able to dislike players because I want to be able to dislike Chris Ashton and Mike Phillips. I think Mike Phillips is probably the most objectionable human being I've ever had to watch on a TV screen, apart from maybe Katie Hopkins.

Let's keep this discussion about what Lawes did or did not do.

All tackles could potentially lead to a very serious injury. Sadly accidents happen. Tough cases make bad laws. We shouldn't rewrite the laws because Courtney Lawes hit someone so hard that they folded.

It would be even better if another player had to crawl through his legs before he could move. I'd love to see a massive prop trying to squeeze through a scrum half's legs.
