Match winning try scored by boy with Down Syndrome goes viral

Of course, I'd imagine it's all done in very good taste, and I'm sure your comment was written with great respect, but there is something not quite right about a sentence revolving around down syndrome players and the words 'half time entertainment'... There is indeed not an awful lot else one can call it, I suppose 'half time game' or 'mid game game', but yeh... just reads funny that's all :)

Agree with your comments though, it's great what people can and will do in order to give people a chance, and it's nice to see that 'Rugby' is doing it :D

Match winning try scored by boy with Down Syndrome goes viral

Sorry mate, I was half asleep, (not a great excuse when it's the middle of the day). I read that as something like 'to quote george best' or something like that....

...anyway, moving along...

Best Tries from Round 3 of the Champions Cup PLUS Facts and Stats

Would say Biggar is better personally... I thought his defensive performance against South Africa was immense and his attacking wasn't too shabby either!

Not a Wales fan, but I think he was their best fly half performance for a long while!

USA 7's player Perry Baker kicks pitch invader after thuggish tackle

Sort of with you regarding streakers, or 'pitch invaders' when they run on during a break in play or something... but yes, attacking an official/player, or even fiddling with them one way or another should reserve an ass whooping!

USA 7's player Perry Baker kicks pitch invader after thuggish tackle

We see players reacting all the time when they have been taken out off the ball, or 'attacked'.. of course, there is rarely a kick involved, however they do react, this is in some ways not much different...

He probably paused to work out who this halfwit was:

"Is he an opposition sub? Is it a family member? or is it just some nutcase who potentially cocked up a counter attack AND put our team in a jeopardising position if something goes wrong?"

The other thing is pain... did it sort of hurt? Looked awkward, what if Baker had ended up getting a bit hurt (landing awkwardly). I mean we saw JDV with a horrific injury recently, I know he sort of got caught up with bodies etc, but awkward falls can twist things. Admittedly it was probably a nothing 'hit' but being completely unaware/unprepared makes it a lot worse.

Hairy f*cking Italian Martin Castrogiovanni rants about c*nt Richard Cockerill

I'm with Eddie on this one...

I don't know the full details, but it seems to me that Cockerill has made some comment about Castro leaving for the money...

I understand it's not exactly the same, but to me Pete, I think this is one of those situations that is somewhat similar to saying POC was wrong in the Jamie Cudmore vs POC moment... where Cudmore threw two or three punches before POC unleashed ginger fury on the Canuck... i.e. POC is a professional so he should just stand their and take it...

Perhaps there has been a lot of negativity around the move and a lot of words said that we don't know about..Castro took it for a while then unleashed hell when he finally snapped...

You could be right, but then maybe Cockerill isn't the most approachable bloke? :/ I dunno...

Hairy f*cking Italian Martin Castrogiovanni rants about c*nt Richard Cockerill

I know not the workings of soccer and how it all goes, however I have 'friends' who supported (or support) Manchester United... I used to look up some results after any Manchester United game, with the hope that they got beaten, one thing that I invariably found was that Mr Ferguson was a loud mouth prat who stamped his feet so much when things didn't go his way that the officials became scared of his wrath...

..Perhaps I'm way off, but that was the impression I got...

...I now get the feeling Cockerill wants to be rugby's version of this... There should never be anything like this in rugby. Rugby needs to do it's best to cling onto what is left of the SPORT and try it's best to avoid adopting any more business...

There is a huge time and a place for business within rugby, but the sport should always take precedent over the business side of things!
