The Top 5 Aviva Premiership Tries plus Highlights Wrap - Round 20

I do love discussing the little ones! The quality of 'em is so high in world rugby right now. Can't wait to see Hidalgo-Clyne break through, a touch of JVDW to him.

The Top 5 Aviva Premiership Tries plus Highlights Wrap - Round 20

Is there actually anybody who truly believes Wigglesworth and Dickson are better players than Simpson? This isn't even based on current form. He's been performing at this level for seasons on end. His talent is finally being recognised because wasps are now a top 6 team.

La Rochelle defeat champions Toulon 32-29 with dramatic try in the final play

Classy stuff from Gorgodze. Starts arguing with the referee. Upon getting sent off, bumps the ref with his shoulder. He then gobs on the pitch before deciding to amble around the dead ball area like a sulking child. Oh dear.

Video tribute to new Harlequins winger Tim Visser

Incredible try scoring stats in the pro 12. Quinn fans'll be pretty excited at the prospect of a Yarde, Visser, Brown combo. Lethal stuff. Edinburgh have let go such a powerful runner. So why has this guy has been so disappointing for Scotland. A few well taken tries, no doubt, but Visser must surely want more than that. The best of Ugo Monye is a related video and I can't help but feel they've both had a similar career path so far. Both look like the real deal, the next big thing... only to be underwhelming given their apparent athleticism.

Still, great signing for Quins.

George North knocked out again as Nathan Hughes gets red card for knee

Totally agree with you on this one. I love Hughes, he's an awesome player and clearly didn't try to knock North unconscious. I'm not sure I see him trying to kick the ball out of North's hands (probably because I'm looking through blue and black tinted glasses). But all that is irrelevant when a player is lying spread eagle and motionless on the turf.

I think someone's already mentioned the O'Connell/Kearney incident. I think the Payne/Goode incident is also totally relevant. For me, intent and motivations should influence the length of ban but the colour of the card surely can't be affected when something this dangerous has happened.

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.

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