Try plating second row the day after a front rower has eaten curry and you'll understand......

I agree with you regarding Clark. I did mention that "done his time" could be one way of viewing the whole scene, however you still have to look at it from his point of view, he was given a shit ban, served the shit ban then went back to the career which he is 'pretty good at' (In the sense that he is wearing an England shirt)...

I do agree though, that video is horrific, to see the nature in what he did and how there is simply no extenuating circumstances (or some sort of crappy cobbled together reason) - Losing your head is one thing, but that didn't look like a heat of the moment snap at someone, that was something else far nastier.

Well looks like Cipriani is out of the runnings.

I'm really disappointed for him, he really looked to add something. He reminded me a bit of Mike Catts influence in 2003, the guy seemed to be sidelined, but he really showed up whenever was brought on.

In my opinion, Cipriani has done better in many positions than some of his counterparts, so as Shrouds said, it begs the question why they bothered with him if they clearly hadn't created a space for him. I don't think he could have done any more.

On the hooker role, it begs the question as to schooling and grass roots rugby... Did youngs et al, get by on their sheer size and weight? Hookers don't hook anymore, they're supported by two props... So really there is no excuse not to be able to throw..

Problem I have with DH, is that whilst I agree with you; it was for sod all (I mean technically it was a headbutt, but there are probably bigger head clashes in the scrums than that was), it was so stupid and mindless and unnecessary... It doesn't say much of the English set up if the best hooker in all of England (which is what you're saying when you hand him that shirt), is a complete non thinking twit....

Granted front rowers are better off not thinking too much..

Scotland grind out victory with late try against Italy in Turin

He had wicked fancy work though, could step as well as bulldoze. I thought his ball in hand and kicking from hand wasn't too bad though? Just seemed to be Italy's usual woe of place kicking that wasn't good?

Northland prop Matt Talaese red carded and banned for full time charge

I don't believe the red card was the result of the ruck situation or the goings on within it, I'd guess it was a result of a shoulder to the face...

I hear rumours of Dylan Hartley potentially rejoining.....

I suppose you can only make a moral stand for so long..... when your pants really start to get pulled down I'd imagine it makes you question your tactics...
