Slade and Wade score as England Saxons defeat Irish Wolfhounds in Cork

I'm more than happy for Sam Burgess to be given time in the Saxons and training with the senior team, but he has to earn that shirt. He himself would be the first to admit as much. I have every hope that, with his ability in League, he will able to apply himself in Union. He needs time and exposure.

I thought DrG's point about the English media (above) was right on the money. He needs as little limelight as possible at the moment to work on building his knowledge about the game. Ultimately it will be how much he can learn tactically which is going to decide whether or not he is able to make it.

Great stats about age, always nice to put it into context.

Jason Eaton and Julien Bonnaire fight as La Rochelle claims famous win

Can't see what Bonnaire did, possibly something to the groin, possibly something to the eyes, but nothing remotely conclusive. Just one of those things.

Yoann Huget gets official warning for faking injury against Bath

I have a five year old son and a three year old daughter. I punished my daughter more than this for lying about her brother punching her. She got a minute on the naughty step, rather than told that if she did it again two or three more times this year then I'd take away one or two of her toys, that she wasn't that concerned about anyway.

To be fair, French wingers are the only people who are allowed to wear white rugby boots. They tend to be fast and good-looking. *shakes himself* Wait, did I just say that out loud?

Thoroughly enjoyable try. That little kick through sat up beautifully. Not sure about Healey's claim that it would have been one of the top 5 tries he had ever seen, but he's an excitable little scrum half.
