Jamie Henry repeats heroics of last year with yet another unbelievable dive for the corner

Brilliant try, simply brilliant. I also really like seeing the tackling player actually getting his arms around rather than just smashing him with a shoulder. Everything about that was champagne.

Awful spear tackle sparks huge brawl in French third division

Red 12 is worth a watch. He starts on the left when it all kicks off. As far as I can see he just bounces around, stamping on legs here and there. He deserved a smack if anyone did.

A look at the USA's preparations for the new Sevens Series

I'd love to see SBW get into the squad. Hopefully a few other big names from across the 15-man game will follow him. It will be an outstanding tournament and can only be good for world rugby.

A look at the USA's preparations for the new Sevens Series

And why don't you leave commenting to people who understand grammar?

Technically mate, we call rugby "football" too, because it's called rugby football. We then have the two sub-divisions of rugby union and rugby league. You've also got association football, from which the name 'soccer' is derived, and Australian rules football. All of these sports are called football because you are allowed to kick the ball.

If the USA ever decide to take rugby union properly, they'll no doubt field an incredibly impressive team due to the sheer number of athletes they produce. The skills might not be there straight away, but it's ignorant and lazy to assume that because American football is very physical those guys lack handling skills. That is obviously not true if you watch it for any period of time.

Now I'm going to assume you're only here because you're a troll, so why don't you piss off back under your bridge? I'm probably going to see your future comments, but I want you to know that when I don't respond to you further, it's because I see you as a colossal waste of everyone's time.

Emotional Hakas farewell Jonah Lomu at final public memorial

You're not truly dead until the ripples you leave behind have settled. And Jonah Lomu left some massive bloody ripples. Very moving to see what high regard he was held in by so many people. RIP.

Pfff, wouldn't catch me doing that.

Rugby Tactics: Quick Ruck Ball Key to Wasps Success

Don't encourage him.

You really need to do more of these, mate. I'd love to know what to look out for in some of these games. I bet a load of people would be interested to see a series which explains some of the more complex parts of the game which wouldn't be obvious to those of us who haven't played at a decent level.

Thanks for all your hard work.

Commentators unhappy after Billy Vunipola is sinbinned for 'shoulder charge'

This was an awful tackle by Vunipola.

No, I mean it, an awful tackle. He should have demolished the guy, instead he was basically bumped off. I don't understand why he didn't get his arms around him and bring him to the floor. He deserves a yellow card for a pathetic attempt at a tackle. He looked like a full-back whose heart wasn't in it. I'm not entirely sure what he was trying to do there.
