Georgia and Romania Rugby World Cup 2015 qualification highlights

Agree with 07... even if you don't feel it's the 'arguably best international rugby competition' it is indeed one of the oldest - if not the oldest (at least it's foundations anyway).

Not to mention the fact you actually took the massively disrespectful part out of context. Scotland - one of the continuous underdogs of recent years were part of the foundation of the 6N to ask them to leave is disrespectful and would be a detriment to their rugby. So you're suggesting we sacrifice one nations rugby to help develop another?

I suggest you read up on the history of the 6N - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_Nations_Championship

Imagine if your nation had been competing in a particular tournament since it's conception (we're talking over 130 years here aren't we?) then some 'foreigner' decides it would be a good idea to remove your team, because it came last, and introduce their team instead. Not sure it would go down well...

Jamie Mackintosh off the ball shoulder shot on Richie McCaw

'Who said that? I can't see your comment!'

He wasn't 'leaning forward' but watch his head, it snaps forward... hence why his chin bounces off the shoulder..

Agreed, I think I've mentioned that to Juggernauter before.

Italy has just joined (relatively speaking) and to now ask them or Scotland to leave because they aren't 'good enough' is massively disrespectful.

I think either as you said, create an entirely new tournament, or do as Fatprop suggests, and include them in the autumn and summer internationals.

Think we'll have to agree to disagree - I can still see; what is in my opinion, an over reaction.

But I do respect the fact that you don't think it is.

If you're trying to fool the opposition with a dummy line then you cannot possibly complain if one of them buys it.. and to be totally honest I think it would be detrimental to the game if everyone started 'playing' to those sorts of penalties - Run the most convincing line you can and get smashed then moan to the referee, get someone sent off, get your 3 point penalty etc..

Lol, sorry, I meant who was at fault to start with... I see the tackle coming through slightly after Parra has shifted the ball which looked fine, whether Parra reacted to that or something else is what I meant...

I'd agree with that statement there. I think it looks like a charge because he stopped the 'wrapping/grasping' as he realised there was no point.. there was no arm tucked in to hit with the point of the shoulder, the height was fine as you said.

I think a penalty is a fair outcome, however I'd be happy with no penalty because of the 'dummy catcher' thing.

England hold on after tense battle with Ireland at Twickenham

Did what about 2 or 3 Englishman including Mike Catt couldn't do... I wouldn't say he was particularly bad...

I'd like to see Ronan O'Gara tackle like that..

Heres the video for your viewing...
