Let's not blow this out of proportion. Lots would snort with derision at your comments.

Denis didn't exist until a few comments ago. Before you get too bothered wait and see what the general tone of his comments are like. My finger is hovering over the 'troll alert' button, but we'll see.

Poite played it absolutely right. His job is to enforce the laws, nothing else. England couldn't work out how to play against it, and tried to get him to tell them what to do - that isn't his job.

It's irrelevant how much time he spent discussing it with Italy. It was England's job to work it out, not the other way around.

England get the win over innovative Italy side at Twickenham

It was appalling to watch, and incredibly negative, but fair play to Italy. It did however make me feel a surge of delight when the tries starting crashing over.

Rugby doesn't need to be pretty, you just want your team to win. England looked rubbish and Scotland will be licking their lips for the next match.

Elliot Daly late try secures England win after titanic battle with Wales

There is also a law about 'materiality' - if a breach of a law doesn't affect the outcome of the game, it is ignored. It's why we allow wonky lineouts when the defending team don't even compete in the air. Due to the defender choosing the wrong man the 'obstruction' was immaterial.

Great try. I swore like made at the time, of course.

The defender had a choice about which man to hit, and chose the wrong one. They were running at diagonals. I'm more than happy to see that try stand.

Ross Moriarty's thumping late hit on Owen Farrell in Cardiff

Howley cocked up. He had written down that he wanted to bring Faletau on a X time and just went ahead and did it, regardless of how well players on the pitch were doing.

The point isn't that he can't tackle, it's that he doesn't work his arse off to get into positions to change the game while defending.
