Friday Funnies - That time the referee pushed Greig Laidlaw

Don't have an issue with this type of thing at all. Personally the way I see it is if players take exception and fight back then they clearly don't have strong self control and therefore need to be highlighted...

Stuart Hogg named Six Nations Player of the Championship for 2016

Ah ok. There was no hidden meaning behind my Itoje comment, it was simply one minute he seemed to be no where, next minute he was one of Englands best players. I thought he was a fantastic player and really acted like a back row player with his steals. If England have a solid back row and still have a ball stealing danger like Itoje in the second row, then they've got a massive platform!

I'd agree that Scotland will struggle against a SH team, but I think at this stage, I'm not even sure England would do well.

Stuart Hogg named Six Nations Player of the Championship for 2016

I'm not sure if you meant it to sound this way, but you make it sound like Hogg is an 'alright' player on a whole, but he just shines because of a bad team?

Couple of points:
1. Hogg outplayed some fantastic opposition and set up some great tries and scored an amazing try of his own. You could argue his team is bad (subject of my next point), but the opposition isn't...
2. "in a poor enough team"? Really? Is that how Scotland is being viewed? I have read a lot of articles on the 6N and most are saying it's important for Scotland not to count it's eggs yet, as there is still a lot of work, but they had some fantastic results. Even the matches they lost in were very close - England 6 points, Wales 4 points and Ireland 10 points - last one not very close I suppose, but definitely an improvement.

It seems to me this 6N has been judged on teams performances against the likes of Scotland. I've heard that the 6N was a poor tournament, woeful rugby... I'm not sure if this is because teams like Scotland are ALWAYS beaten and "how in the world did my team come so close to losing to Scotland?!?!?" is on the forefront of peoples minds?

Regarding Itoje, did he play in all the matches?

Billy Vunipola celebrates Grand Slam with classic Backstreet Boys lip sync video bomb

Do they? I remember seeing it happening in some games, but never realised it was as common as you suggest (if you're suggesting it happens most games..).

I love seeing it happen, I think it's a wonderful show of respect and camaraderie amongst lovers of the game.

Bit podgy ain't he :P

Interesting to see Mako wearing a French top, I suppose if England got a fresh half time top then he'd still have that, but otherwise he's given up his grandslam England top...
