Courtney Lawes lays into another unsuspecting flyhalf, this time Jules Plisson

I want Oliver to be able to dislike players because I want to be able to dislike Chris Ashton and Mike Phillips. I think Mike Phillips is probably the most objectionable human being I've ever had to watch on a TV screen, apart from maybe Katie Hopkins.

Let's keep this discussion about what Lawes did or did not do.

All tackles could potentially lead to a very serious injury. Sadly accidents happen. Tough cases make bad laws. We shouldn't rewrite the laws because Courtney Lawes hit someone so hard that they folded.

It would be even better if another player had to crawl through his legs before he could move. I'd love to see a massive prop trying to squeeze through a scrum half's legs.

Oh God yes, this is absolutely what they should do next time. And the tackled player should have to spin around three times and touch the floor before they are allowed to move again.

Well played Ireland, deserved winners in the end. Fantastic to see that they haven't dropped off since losing O'Driscoll. Great winners of a great 6 Nations.

England and France's Twickenham thriller not enough in dramatic title chase

Hey Oliver. I agree, Le Crunch is always special. France played like France for the first time this tournament and gave us a spectacle. It is a good tournament when the fans of every single team can be proud at the finish. Yes, we wanted those 26 points, but first of all we had to beat France. I seriously hope that France can build on this and maintain this flair. It has been missing for too long!

Allez les Bleus!

England and France's Twickenham thriller not enough in dramatic title chase

Owens gets a lot of love on this site, and it's not hard to see why. There are some who like to have a go, but their comments are invariably error-strewn and so can be disregarded as the work of children or imbeciles.

Mr Owens is quite simply the best referee in the world. He does make mistakes but they tend not to be large ones, and the games he referees tend to flow well. He simply does not take any shit from the players which I adore. I was explaining the importance of respecting the referee to my 6 year old son at one point in the game and when Owens told Robshaw off he clocked it! Important lessons for youngster watching to see and learn from.

We've been saying that for a few years, so I doubt anything dramatic can be done! We are a good team who can play well at times, but so many international outfits are. We're not consistently good - something which only New Zealand and South Africa can really claim to be. Until we are consistent we won't be world beaters.

Lawes didn't lift him, so it's hard to see how it can be called a tip tackle.
