England and France's Twickenham thriller not enough in dramatic title chase

Bloody good game but the defensive coaches have something to answer!

Jacques Potgieter fined $20,000 for homophobic comments against the Brumbies

That fine must be an absolute pain in the arse

Ireland stay on track with victory over England in Dublin

The only role I see him playing is a backup to a fully fit Tuilagi, alright player though he is.

Ireland stay on track with victory over England in Dublin

Agreed. Except when he's in the shithouse behind his own try line with 50 Irish defenders trying to tackle him!

Love that, Murray was so influential all game! Definitely thought he could have got MoM over Henshaw.

Definitely agreed on 1,2 & 3 - not to sure what happened to 4?! :D But you can't really believe Wigglesworth is better than Youngs. Granted I'll admit Youngs is a bit of a turnstile, whilst Wigglesworth is strong in defence. But that's hardly the defining trait of a good scrum half. For me I can't imagine a lethal England back line with Wigglesworth at the helm.

Youngs, Care and Simpson must surely be England's strongest options right now.

Jamie Heaslip accepts cited Pascal Pape's apology but is out injured

Why is being civilised reserved for after the game? I'm all for aggression. I'm all for big hits. I'm all for players legally smashing the daylights out of each other. This is rugby after all. But buying your opposite number a pint after the game doesn't give you permission to punch him in the face during it.

Jamie Heaslip accepts cited Pascal Pape's apology but is out injured

No, no, no this is not classy from Heaslip. Rugby is indeed a physical game but these things don't just happen. Kneeing someone in the spine doesn't suddenly become acceptable because you send someone a nice twitter message. This is just like the incident between Ma'afu and Youngs a while ago. Ma'afu absolutely creamed Youngs in the face and became a hero of the rugby community because he sent him a jolly apology message. Not only has it now become acceptable, but this sort of thing is actually being celebrated as a sign of rugby's values. A game for hooligans played by gentleman? Pshh

England lack early intensity but pile points on Italy in second half

Why Nowell? He almost seems to typify the conservative selection policy that Lancaster's been so criticised for. When we have genuinely exciting options such as Yarde, Wade, Roko, Pennell and Ashton what is the Jack Nowell appeal? It's a massive shame Foden's out - he would be so great to have as a back three option.

Jason Eaton and Julien Bonnaire fight as La Rochelle claims famous win

The most disappointing part is probably Bonnaire describing this as an occupational hazard. As if this shit is in any way in line with rugby's attitude and ethos. I'm so sick of seeing punches being thrown on a rugby pitch.
