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.

Jonathan Joseph brilliance sets up Francois Louw try for great Bath try

Whether it's Joseph, Burrell, Tuilagi, Farrell, Eastmond or Barritt I really don't care. Just please god don't let it be Twelvetrees.

Best Tries from Round 3 of the Champions Cup PLUS Facts and Stats

Sneaky because unless I'm mistaken the bloke qualifies for quite a few different nations. An England cap would tie up his long term future.

Best Tries from Round 3 of the Champions Cup PLUS Facts and Stats

Perhaps I'm looking at this rather cynically, but Lancaster must have one eye on a sneaky England cap for Nathan Hughes.

Owens said the ball was on the line.

Referee decisions in spotlight as New Zealand prove too good for England

I'm not sure I understand Owens' logic behind that Whitelock (almost) try. If you conclude that the ball is on the line, which Owens did, then the first touch of the ball is not a knock on, it is a try. Surely the knock on happens after the ball has already been touched down? Of all the decisions that have been raised this seems to me the most contentious and the least discussed.

All Blacks snatch victory at the death in thrilling Brisbane Test

I understand the media pressure but what is McKenzie thinking? Who on earth is going to become the Wallabies coach so close to the world cup, Cheika? A nation with an incredible set of players and an incredible team has done an incredible job of fucking up.
