A look back on a record-breaking All Blacks year

Tbh, their record is very impressive considering a lot of their opposition.

England has run up a decent record for the moment, and tbf their opposition has also come in the form of 3 wins against the Aussies, but I'd like to see a match up of the England win record for the moment and the opposition faced and the NZ oppo for their win record.

Hilarious footage of wing Jonny May trying to scrum goes viral

Open the driver door and push from the A pillar, that way you have easy access to the pedals and the steering wheel should you need it....

Kieran Brookes and Calum Green both suspended following breakdown altercations

It's clear to see that Lawson wasn't his intended target, this was well disguised revenge on his own player (second row perhaps?) who is lying on the floor and gets a knee drop. Clearly the bloke has made a comment about Brooke's height, or perhaps put his packet of smarties on a high shelf and Brooke's just lost the plot and saw an opportunity to get his revenge...

Found it too difficult a session, most of our forwards dont have enough hair to stand around caressing it and we broke too many mirrors by looking into them to justify doing a session like that again...

Dean Mumm cleared of further punishment after 'lifting tackle' citing

I find it very hard in this day and age to not condemn this tackle and the following up lack if a ban....

It's difficult to get my point across to other commentators on here how I am really separating my own view from the theoretical paper based rulings....

I personally look at this as an accident, I think Mumm tried to roll the Irishman, and the other Aussie had the Irishmans upper body trapped, so instead of a roll it became something else....

But with the rulings we have seen these last few years, I'd really have expected a ban... I'd like to know, why specifically when you consider the other incidents, that this wasn't ban worthy?

Was it a red card worthy in the game, but that's it?

Was it dealt with 100% correctly?

Was it because it looks accidental?

Specifically the last reason I deem wrong, as we have seen accidents all over of this nature are normally deemed reckless...

It is very difficult on a whole and tbh i feel for those that have to make decisions as they've clearly stated player welfare is their priority, however this has left them open to criticisms on their rulings....

As a rugby player I'd say time result of this was fair...

If i was a law critic, I'd say it was unfair and wrong... Letter of the law he lifted a leg, players head made contact with the ground...

Hahahaha that was so damn funny!

I've never considered scrumming whilst playing flanker as a particularly complicated art.... Seen a few games, figured how hard can it be (then again, I might be shit at it...)

But to see someone balls it up THAT badly is hilarious!

I'm surprised England weren't overturned on that scrum considering the prop was clearly more focussed on what was happening to his arse than the Argie prop in front of him. As T said, should be a golden rule to not touch the props legs!! You run the risk of your second row having his arm sexually assaulted!!

Highlights from Week 4 of the November Tests

I suppose Colombes you could be right, the AB's have been wounded this tour and teams have really shown the AB's to be human. Ireland obviously beat them, second match wasn't a whitewash...the French score was quite tight for a kiwi game...they are probably looking to install some self belief and confidence again..

Of course they're still winning more than they're losing, but it currently doesn't look as clear cut as before...

Highlights from Week 4 of the November Tests

It would have bloody backfired if the French won a penalty and took a quick tap leading to their usual trick - alternative rugby commentary:
"9 to 10, 10 miss pass to 13, 13 pass to 15 coming into the line, 15 behind the back pop pass to 14 hit back on the angle, 14 to 10, 10 short ball to 11 on the inside, 11 cuts 12, 12 dummy to 10, 12 behind the back pop pass to 7, 7 into contact FIGHT, someone loses a testicle, 10 calls his wife, 14 sends a text to the girlfriend, 15 sends a text to 14's girlfriend, FIGHT, French hooker scores"

Elliot Daly suspended for 3 weeks after red card for dangerous challenge

I know a little while back (early this year maybe?) They trialled some new law variations at college level where by they had a free catch law... Looked shit imo....

But as you say it's a tricky situation.

I think it was Jared Payne vs Goode maybe? Where Payne clearly had eyes on ball as he was running and Goode jumped to catch it... And all Payne did was run face first into Goode's arse, but he get a red card for it....
