Toulon's Xavier Chiocci scores a great prop try against Castres in the Top 14

Nice idea. I see a lot of potential there. And props should be handed a pint for the conversion. 3 points if they finish it in one.

I've used polyglot in the past.

Hi Colombes, unfortunately my comment on your double post got deleted with along with the original post.

I had said that your comments always have something interesting in them. I didn't know that Dulin had previous injuries on that shoulder - it shows how important it is to have commentators from every corner of the rugby world. I always enjoy your comments, you always have a lot of good stuff to say.

They have something like this in football. If a player is seen to by a medic, they have to leave the field and the referee allows them back on once play has restarted. It is aimed to limit diving. It clearly doesn't deter that, but might work in rugby. Possibly worth a shot.

I think we need to see red cards being dished out for diving/simulation. Bryan Habana had a few high-profile incidences and, for me, were worse than most of the rough stuff we've had highlighted for some time.

I would LOVE to practice my french, particularly when talking about rugby. I have a basic conversational level of french but have french relatives, and being European is very important to me.

Care to help me practice sometime?

The Castres players didn't feel like trying to tackle the runaway train! Some shocking 'efforts' in there. Nice to see a big fella score.

I always want to call them the fatties, but I bet their fat to muscle ratio is better than mine!

The guy landed on his head. It wasn't Parisse's fault, but he still hit the ground hard enough to be cautious. Parisse is experienced enough to know better.

Pretty sure that when you put someone in the recovery position you don't drag them up into the air by their arm. If he was doing that he'd have gotten slowly down next to him and would have supported the guys head.

No red card for the collision, accidents happen.

Penalty for the afters, yellow card at most for what could have been a dangerous movement if the guy had sustained neck damage. I don't think this is worthy of a red card.

Surely the IRB need to take a step back and change their guidance to referees in situations like this...

Second Rower Sam Whitelock scores unbelievable solo try vs the Reds

Tall-boys gallop, fat-boys trundle, small-boys scurry. Agree with everything you've said.
