Marcelo Bosch takes over from Owen Farrell to land huge penalty kick

He has a great boot on him, and if he was in South Africa he would have even more distance on his kicks. His style is beautiful aswell because he doesn't force it, you see some players try kicks from 45-55m and they come well short of what they can normally do because they try their hardest to smack the leather off the ball. This kick must have gone 65m.

Marcelo Bosch takes over from Owen Farrell to land huge penalty kick

Yeah this debate has happened for a while, I think it's fine as it is. How many times do you see teams giving away penalty after penalty because it's only 3 points, you reduce it down too 2 points and you can give away 3 penalties before it becomes a problem. A better way of doing it is either increasing points given too tries or yellow cards given more frequently for repeat infringements.

Heineken Cup 2014 Quarter Final Highlights

Payne was reckless and stupid. That's it really, it is deem as a tackle in the rule book, and he has played a man in the air and put him beyond the horizontal. This is just what is in the rule book not my view. It is a red and as others say it is very easy to pretend that you didn't know the guy was going to be there. If it was an accident Payne might have shown more remorse than to put his hands up saying there is nothing wrong what's the problem. Payne has looked at the ball then down to adjust his run around players, how did he not see Goode running to the ball ? It's an up and under so why did he think that no-one would challenge him ?

Carlin Isles dropped ball blooper ruins great fifteens debut try

'He's got a really unusual style though, hasn't he? I mean apart from the pace, agility and acceleration it's that low body position / centre of gravity that seems to completely throw defences'

It's from his American Football background, they run on their heals and in weird straight lines.
Back onto dropping the ball over the line, Umaga did it and I don't think anyone really cares about that. The best have done it. Just score 20+ tries a year and it don't matter.

Logovi'i Mulipola prop try included in Premiership Try of the Week nominations

You do know that meters made is not counted laterally ? He is an interesting player and scores tries for fun at prem levelbut can he make the step up ? Also the worse player in recent years for England has to go to Vainkolo or Banahan, now they are useless
