Bloodied Brad Barritt happy to put body on the line in win over Wallabies

I can't believe that Barrett was able to play on until the end. Fair play to the man, but he was groggy as hell after one hit and struggled to stand up. Only one thing can cause that and it isn't a cut.

Ok, then a written warning to the clubs. We should be harnessing our pretty powerful sense of honour and loyalty within clubs to tackle this issue.

Sam Burgess makes his rugby union debut in Bath win over Harlequins

I'm guilty as anyone of buying into the hype, but I'm with Colombes, who as usual has made a very sensible point. Only time will tell if Sam Burgess can cut it at the top level of Union. It's a sobering point but one well worth paying attention to.

I didn't like hearing the commentator saying "There's no hint of concussion there" when clearly it was impossible to tell from distance, it feels to me that if you get knocked to the ground and don't get up immediately from a head injury, or get a blood injury to the head, that at test level a neutral doctor should assess you.

I don't think they should be banned for life. People should have the potential to learn from their mistakes as long as they don't present a threat to others.

These two clowns might have got tickets through Ticketmaster or whatever, but if hypothetically they got through through a rugby club, I think their club should have their ticket allocation suspended for a year. We, as citizens and supporters, should be policing each other. This would be a good way of doing that. Nobody will be laughing at training when they know they're going to miss out on the chance of tickets due to some knobhead from the club.

Name the club/organisation they're with in the programme. If they got tickets through work, make sure the company is named in the next programme.

I can't agree more with your final paragraph. Farrell should have been dropped before then. Virtually every player dropped by Lancaster has done well from the experience because they know that they have to drop X, Y or Z to get a starting place back. Farrell should have been told to go away and to focus on getting a backline attacking more.

Toulon based Steffon Armitage says he still wants to play for England

It's an opportunity to get to a ruck JUST as the ball leaves. I was the bloody master of it.
