England edge France in tight Six Nations battle at Twickenham

I'm not sure Dan, tried to watch it sort of frame by frame, I'm not sure why the collision; if to the chest, would cause Picamoles head to snap back... We've seen big hits when a players head rocks forward at the initial hit, because their speed is stopped but momentum causes the head to continue forwards...

But until we get a close up view, it's hard to safe for sure..

Scotland leave it late to beat Ireland in thrilling Six Nations opener

Brilliant game, I couldn't believe how silent the Scots made the Irish in the first half...

However, I think the second half must have been terrifying for the Scottish fans and team. I think pound for pound Ireland would still get ahead, but clearly not by far.

I think Scotland are making their own luck now, they realised the Irish were not clinical enough and went hell for leather to take the points when it mattered most. Some lovely rugby played! I think being on the receiving end of some Irish push definitely tested the Scots discipline, they need to watch out on their penalty count further into the tournament.

Also the tackle count was incredible. If Jonny Gray didn't get noticed for the Lions with his performance defensively then I don't know what else he could do.

Wales come good in second half to comfortably beat Italy

Ouch, tough assessment from a Welshman. Probably not far from the truth though tbh. The Italian outfit has got better over the years, but the reality is, the Welsh SHOULD be far better than poor Italy, but you're right, making them worn out seemed to be the tactic of the day.

England edge France in tight Six Nations battle at Twickenham

To be fair though Stroudos, given the angles we have so far, I'd say gut feeling that is at least a yellow if not a red - in todays age and with the current directives..

Of course a closer view, slow motion etc, would help me exhaust my authority as an armchair expert...

Wales come good in second half to comfortably beat Italy

To those that would argue the game is not going soft, that heinous piece of thuggery by that horribly nasty Italian will now become my go to!

How can one expect to ENJOY this nasty sport when there are awful thugs brutally putting peoples lives in danger with those deadly tackles....

...Borderline racist, homophobic and sexist also...

#ThrowbackThursday: Remember when Courtney Lawes decapitated Plisson?

I do agree with you Dan, but would you be horribly surprised if this did result in a card this day and age? Not because of the laws, but because of the general direction of the game, anything that results in potential head or neck injury seems to result in a card even if it turns out that there was no particular fault of the tackler etc...
