Ed Quirk lashes out with elbow and knee after being held off the ball

^^^

See what I mean...

"very dangerous"..... Very dangerous is what I may be require to leave behind in the bathroom shortly. THAT was probably painful and about it, or are we thinking that he could have burst an ear drum, fractured an eye socket, caused a concussion, a neck injury, and probably given the Stormers player a dose of herpes all at the same time..

Ed Quirk lashes out with elbow and knee after being held off the ball

Seems fair enough.... all of that would have been totally avoided had the Stormers player not held him....

But I'm sure the masses of cous cous eaters will to taste his blood and want his head on a spike in a tremendous effort to reduce violence...

Yeh, but isn't Savea relatively slow for a winger?....ok, I've googled it and everything seems to say the contrary... but I'm sure that was an armchair theory that was batted about, therefore it's pretty much a scientifically proven fact..

Quade Cooper likely to be suspended following red card vs Lions

....or we should just say FK the fair weather supporter and bring the game right back down to it's roots.

Head injuries are serious, as are all injuries, but perhaps in this case, treatment is better than prevention....

I've said many times over, rugby is an inherently dangerous game... you're throwing 100kg+ lumps of untrained meat at, in some cases, 65-70kgs of meat... injuries are bound to happen regardless of how sanitised the sport becomes. The only true way to reduce injuries is to remove contact from the sport...and even then, accidents will happen.

So rather than making unrealistic attempts at making the game safer, bringing about a means of aftercare for anyone injured is the better way to go. Have we really seen a rise in head injuries over the last 10-20 years, or are these things just becoming better reported and better highlighted so that they're easier for the 'layman' to recognise...

I might be wrong, but has Hogg shown anything other than maturity this 6N?

I'm not saying that puts him above Brown, I'd say on the maturity level they're both fairly equal. In terms of the rest of the game, Hogg brings a good boot, it'll help with clearance kicks and the like, but I don't think it'll be particularly necessary given the depth of kickers...

Either way, we all know it'll be Biggar at 10 and Halfpenny at 15...

Racing 92 and Stade Fran├žais merger called off - A recap

This is where France is caught in the middle, they're not a super league franchise clubs, but their counterparts and player choice makes them out to be a bit like that.

I know there are old clubs all over the world, but in the UK there is deep rooted clubs with history etc, I've seen it mean a lot to players and fans and the like. These clubs have to be careful they don't lose their heritage and become a corporation... But of course they also have to make sure they don't disappear through financial troubles and lack of interest...

Stats matter a heck of a lot if I told you he scored x amount of tries and assisted in y amount... What I'm saying is that currently I don't know what those figures are, but if you don't rate him then that's up to you.... Bit sad that's all

Renaldo Bothma suspended for 4 weeks for swinging arm

At first I thought it looked pretty nasty, with the replays I'd say it looks more clumsy more than deliberate...

I take it you do standup on the weekends yeh?

"Will always go himself and only pass the ball when he's in the shit or there is nothing on"

Errr, unfortunately I don't have the stats as to how many... but you are aware he was a key player assisting in many tries aren't you? Or was that pure luck?
