Morgan Parra banned for two weeks for head butt on Rene Ranger

You seriously start to wonder where they find these guys. Not only are the talking nonsense but they do it in a flat, mumbling, monotonous voice. At least with someone like Miles Harrison he sounds interested by his own nonsense.

England hold on after tense battle with Ireland at Twickenham

It's interesting that Burns has been completely left out of the England picture because of club form. Morgan has been pretty awful for Gloucester all season but he's been awesome for England and I don't think there's anyone who would say he should be dropped. I often get the feeling people read too much into club form. This is why I can't understand why Dickson is being played ahead of Youngs. If they're good enough, they will shine on the international stage. That's the way I see things anyway.

I honestly think Sexton's kicking contributed more than anything to the end result. Cian Healy and Devin Toner haven't really been given enough laudits as perhaps they should've done. They were giving Sexton great ball but more often than not he seemed to feed it back to the England back three.

As you suggested it could well be that the English back three were just much better at covering the pitch than the Welsh were last fortnight. But that would surprise me given the inexperience of Nowell and May, and the quality of Halfpenny and Big George.

Beauden Barrett wins IRPA Try of the Year 2013 for try against France

If North's try were a 79th minute winner in a World Cup final, this would still be better.

Wales bounce back with strong win over France in Cardiff

I didn't quite manage catch why he got carded (Italian commentary). Was it for a ruck infringement? Retaliating to the petty head patting? Either way I didn't like the clapping at all.

England retain Calcutta Cup after dominant performance at Murrayfield

The main problem is that *Laidlaw was ever made captain in the first place. Kelly Brown was made a scape goat for the breakdown disaster Scotland had last week, leading to Johnson making this bizarre decision to pile on more pressure to a half back already under the cosh.

England retain Calcutta Cup after dominant performance at Murrayfield

Early in last weekend's match England threw away 3 points by doing exactly as you suggested and running away the advantage. The next time the situation came up, Care slotted the drop goal. This week, the same situation came up and Care slotted the drop goal. Does that really make you "so angry it hurts"? or are you just always angry?
