Beziers stated 'a sour graping frenchman who didn't forget the last WC final' ...that basically means that Beziers is French and the comment he is making is not as a result of being a Frenchman. He did not mention Jouberts nationality in that comment.
You followed with a comment saying Joubert is a saffa. That is correct, however take note of my comment which stated that Beziers did not make reference to Jouberts nationality, therefore your insult towards him was entirely unnecessary.
You then reply to me saying - let me get this right - 'You are not....fool!'
To match your insulting level, how about this for an answer: 'Do you need a fucking dictionary, or do you just want me to arrange for you to go back to night classes in English?'

I think as a front row player he can have a quick word with the referee regarding the front row, whether or not the referee chooses to engage in conversation with him is another matter, some referee's will, others will say 'talk to your captain'..
Plus it depends whether blondie was talking in a civil manner...
Doesn't matter either way, I don't think a single scrum was completed...

..haha, yes quite a convenient fixture for Picamoles to sit in the corner and think about what he has done...

I do agree with you there, I suppose you can turn your back and go 'lalalalala' if someones talking to you, but if they pat you on the head after something has been given against you, it's far harder to ignore.
That is horrible about that opposing coach, glad to see him banned. I think there is plenty room for sledging, but I'd much prefer to see it come from players having a quick word with each other in the scrums, rucks, lineouts, mauls etc than from the sidelines..
Actually a couple examples. I remember we were having a brilliant season (and actually got promoted at the end) and during one game with a near bottom of the league team the ball was passed (very nicely) to our winger who for some reason ended up juggling it and knocking it on, to which one of the bench of the opposition laughed loud and yelled 'they can't even get wingers to catch the ball in this team' - I think the reply given by the winger was more or less '..and you can't even get a starting position in your team'. It was brilliant to hear but I did feel like sledging is better done under your breath so only you and the guy your trying to wind up hear it.

Just on your first sentence, I couldn't agree more. I enjoy watching all the international matches I can, for all the teams, but one thing that I have been noticing is take an out and out different team like NZ - Bit of an extreme example but you'll see - They lose their fly half, Dan Carter (arguably the best FH in international rugby at the moment) and they replace him with another one who also gets injured, so they replace him, and they STILL have a brilliant fly half. Look at the rest of the world in that position they would be scratching around fielding props in 10 shirts or something, and NZ appear to be able to do that with EVERY position. They always seem to have someone who in all honesty DESERVES a starting position in a world class team to fill in a position, whereas everyone else 'makes do' with others.
So all that being said, it's great to see England creating some depth. I'm sure it's not as deep as they'd like and there are a few players they'd dread losing, but they are doing very well.

To drag up an old comment someone once left me when talking about Faletau and Manu some people probably would think it's very fair:
'LOL, you're not serious DrG are you .... neither of them are a product of schooling .... they are a product of "Gene Pool migration facilitated by £'s"
Tuilagi had way below average skill sets as a teenager, but way way way above average physical attributes!'
To which I replied:
'...right because 7 year old Faletau was handed a Welsh rugby shirt when he stepped off the plane...'
Shame about Billy Vunipola injury, although with Morgan(?) was it, who replaced him, I think England still have a rather strong pack..

I said above in reply to Stroudos that I don't recall the 'tackle' so if you're right then I agree fair play to standing up. Hopefully there'll be a video come up somewhere.
'a cheap shot is a cheap shot regardless of reputation' - That statement is fair enough, but I didn't say anything contrary to it. If I were an official I wouldn't give BOD free reign to play as he wishes just because it was his final match at Twickenham.. I doubt very much anyone would..

Great video Stroudos, it's nice to see a different side to him, I've only seen him involved in the 6N, (hence why I was one of those who didn't recognise his talents) so perhaps England on a whole are not pleased with the campaign so far and are trying to remain cool and calm. I actually forgot Brown was the one involved with Huget.
45678 mentioned below that it was a late swinging arm, I don't actually recall the 'tackle' that sparked it, but that would indeed be in line with why Brown would get his back up.
I think BOD is a wind up merchant, although I have no proof of this. But I also think it's a fair point about a player not caring about another players 'day' - Perhaps he had a chat after the game - 'what happens on the pitch stays on the pitch' ?
I hope for his sake (and Englands) he stays fit for the World Cup he'll be a massive asset for them.

Agree entirely Stroudos, I think I miswrote my comment up there. I know that the onus is always on the tackler regardless of what the ball carrier is doing, I think I meant to use the word leniency from just a viewers point of view rather than an official, i.e. could we say, 'yeup, high penalty, no doubt about that, but by looking at it, he didn't mean to go high...but still penalty etc'
But if you say he started high ended higher then I guess not..

Not suggesting he needs to be someone he is not, I'm just saying it's a shame he can't be what appears to be a likeable person as well as a good player - Doesn't have to be one or the other.
