Rory Kockott misses long range penalty but tries again with dropgoal

Thanks for the response. I'm not sure about you but Machanaud really didn't impress me in the 6 nations. Other than the final, I don't watch Top 14 games so I haven't really got a grasp on how good Kockott is.

To raise an issue other than the tedious point of nationality - can a frenchman on this forum please tell me why France have seemingly turned their back on one of the best scrum halfs in the world? Morgan parra, just 24, is surely the best option France have at 9? What is saint-Andre doing picking mechenaud and why is Kockott now being considered?

Manu Tuilagi apologises for 'bunny ears' prank on prime minister

Some articles are saying Brian Moore called Tuilagi a prat. As a matter of my own personal opinion this is what he actually tweeted.

"Tuilagi - those of you saying you're offended; are you, are you really - isn't 'What a prat' the highest you can put it?"

Two Argentina players cited after eye-gouge and biting claims in Mendoza

Disagree. Louw's reaction wasn't enough to sanction a penalty. In fact it was almost nothing. The same goes for Etzebeth. He's hardly right hooked him in the face?

Based on this video footage there is no evidence to support a ban. You can't clearly see a bite and you can't clearly see a gouge. The events may well have occurred but until further footage is shown the players can't be punished.

Courtney Lawes huge hit in pre-season game vs Bedford Blues

I am willing to concede on Attwood as I've rarely seen him play. He's just never left any impression on me when I have. Including when he played for England.

When has Lawes ever done something stupid? Show me.

I agree with you on Croft. Croft drops off tackles and hangs on the wing. Lawes is not like Croft. I'm sick of people saying Lawes doesn't put in the grunt just because he's always on the highlights reel. Watch him play, please.

Courtney Lawes huge hit in pre-season game vs Bedford Blues

He isn't the best second row in the world. I don't think anyone here is saying that. But remember injury has put his career behind by a year and a half. I predict him developing into one of England's most influential players by the world cup.
