Courtney Lawes lays into another unsuspecting flyhalf, this time Jules Plisson

I did accept it. I was hurt once. Twice... Got a broken foot. Then a concussion and neck injury. I dont mention fingers. And I stopped playing when I was 18. I used to love creating or takings gaps. Combining passes. And even charging straight ahead. And then it was all over because of some mere brute like those you admire. Some real intellectual whose idea of the game was "me love crushing bones and smashing people hahahah".

As far as I m concerned, Pape needed a good long ban, french or not.
Don't remember if it was Wilko or O'Driscoll who said - about the french i think ! - something like "it's not funny to play anymore when you have big bastards trying to hurt you".
Thats my point: i d sooner admire creation than destruction. With teams of player only trying to hurt themselves, we woul'dnt have seen such a game.

And I kindly invite you to read a politeness guide or something, regarding "expressing a disagreing opinion withoud beeing an ass".
To you rugby is about hurting people, fair enough. To me it never was.
Its kinda funny that you use the word backwards given that you are the one shouting in caps that you want to hurt people.
When I was 14 an english player decided that tackling could do more damage if he sitted on my head. Guess what? He was right! Concussion, headaches... took me still a couple of years to realise I d better quit playing myself even if I loved the game.

Unnecessary is the word. You put your finger on it. So it's not only late and disgracious, its useless... unless you hope for Plisson not to get up. Unless you hope you did some damage.
Oh and unless you hope to get a youtube video of your tackle, with heavy metal as sountdrack...

England and France's Twickenham thriller not enough in dramatic title chase

12 points lost with the boot as a matter of fact.
Definitely not a flatterings score. Its 7vs5 tries, a couple of them - on both side - being arguable.
A great game anyway. Too bad France was so bad again in the beginning, passing the ball to no one and those kind of things...

I must say I was horrified rather than impressed.
It may be "legal" (which depends on the definition of "late"), but its ugly imo.
Of course you don't have to get all pysicality out of the game. But high late tackle in the back... no, never gonna find it beautiful, sorry.
The intention to hurt would ne part of the game? If this is so and clear for everyone, really, I m out. Being better, stronger, even causing pain, face to face, absolutely agree that its part of the game. Hurting someone hoping he's not gonna get up? Or at least he s gonna be shaken? No way.
On the field I would never target someone. A space, a number, not a guy specificaly. Except for...guys like Lawes.

How the final round of the 2015 Six Nations will be decided

Anyone knows what happens if two (or even 3, that would be fun) teams have the same point difference?
Number of tries?

How the final round of the 2015 Six Nations will be decided

Indeed! Best attack VS best defence (draw with Ireland)! Yet as you said, its only stats. We can only hope for an open game but with the pressure of a crunch as last game and title decider... I m afraid its gonna be ugly!

It's cruel for french supporters. One have to hope for 2 upsets by Italy and Scotland... but then chances that the English get the title would be higher! :-)

Psychological factors (overconfidence VS revenge) apart, Wales could trash a collapsing Italy.
I wanted to believe that Scotland would be the big surprise of this tournament but the only surprise is how bad they manage to get when it comes to winning games. Just the opposite of Ireland.
With this french defence... I don't see the English increasing their points difference.
With a 29-0 of their own, the welsh would be at +41, Ireland would need a +8 diff and England +4...
Mmm well that is really close indeed.
