Eddie Jones on the hateful rivalry between the English and the Welsh

Same goes with all nations.

Granted players should give their all for the shirt, but you should be able to send an English international to NZ and stick him in an all black shirt and he should give his all for that team! I've learned that through playing for a lot of different teams. It seems a shame to want to pull the shirt on and only half arse your way around the pitch...

So when you're off the pitch or even after the whistle everyone has the game in common and that's all that matters :)

Midweek Madness - Young fullback kicks his teammate's butt

I'd take an educated guess and say that perhaps that lump in Serfonteins throat wouldn't be his adams apple...

Jerome Kaino issued warning for dangerous off the ball tackle

I don't believe that punch to the face was accidental!

Lets say for one minute it might have been, he knew he did it straight away, wouldn't he have been likely to stick an arm round the bloke and make sure he's ok therefore showing an attempt to apologise, whilst also stating "I'm really sorry mate, I was pinned and trying to get my arm free"... and hope that the referee takes some pity?!?

As for the tackle.. what was he thinking?

Manu Tuilagi makes another two huge hits against Exeter Chiefs

So in your infinite wisdom, what you're trying to say is that because I tend to put big hits that means I am a SH player?

YES!

Midweek Madness - Young fullback kicks his teammate's butt

That's the problem with just stopping and (trinh)-ducking, there is always a Slim(ani) chance that you'll get a Good(e) kick in the arse. I wonder if he'll do that any (Cud)more or next time try and get out the way altogether? He's lucky he didn't get kicked in the Man(u) parts or he'd have to get stretchered off to get his (Po)cock wrapped up and in ice...

Probably much like the situation I had briefly experienced... Just carried it on through to adult life...

Genetic influence on body shape which further influences technique?

Or perhaps, Henry: "come on baby brother, you're tackling like an Englishman...*SMASH*... THIS is how us big boys tackle"

I don't actually know when Manu moved from Samoa to England, or how long he spent in Samoa over a period of time, but it makes me wonder if it's got something to do with his heritage, Samoans hitting hard is as common as British rain, inconsistent refereeing and French playing clean rugby (maybe not the last one...), but I guess it begs the question on whether taking the boy out of Samoa, takes the Samoa out of the boy....

Maybe he's had a lot of throw abouts with the older brothers or something... or perhaps because of his sheer size it makes him quite lazy, in the technical aspects. I remember at colt level, I was fairly big, and running around with smaller lighter people meant I could sort of grab them or knock them and I generally achieved what I was after... when I stepped up to senior level, I suddenly realised that I was quite light and certainly not the biggest on the field... it meant I have to consider my technique a lot more.. Maybe Manu is missing that aspect being one of the quicker guys on the field and with that weight behind him...
