Wales claim the Triple Crown with nail biting win over England

Not a try to me in the end either.
I predicted a Welsh close victory but expected the game to go much more for Wales.
England played much much better than in the previous games, France and Ireland should both expect very tough games against them later.
I think France will have to be very well organised to beat Wales and stop them from winning the grand slam.

Ireland see off Italy with strong second half in Dublin

I think Ireland got a bit lucky to come out of the first half ahead on the score because Italy put good pressure during the second quarter of the game. Their second half was much better and Bowe's try at the 61th minute showa what they can do when playing with pace and organisation.

Bath and Gloucester get to know one another in mass brawl at the Rec

The Bath second row is clearly responsible for this brawl and only them should have been punished I think.
The ref's attitude is right though: it's impossible for him to see everything and he acts with authority binning both teams since a lot a people where involved.
Fighting in rugby is the week way to get your frustration out. Good players get it out by putting bit hits and running hard. That said I don't think it's a big deal if professional players fight a little, as long as it stays on the field. Once the players have been yellow carded they should leave in silence, there's a reason why it's called the "sin bin".

Friday Funnies - Joe Van Niekerk scores with a vertical leap try

I hope he got well punished for that at the bar!
A good dive should be horizontal and sliding on the ground, not like Ashton does, just throwing himself on the ground and probably hurting himself for nothing.
Van Niekerk is a very good player though, still got it!

England edge past Italy in the snow of Rome

England is lucky to have won this game. Italy were strong in the forwards but also played quite well in the backs, which is not something they are used to do.
Even with Castrogiovani injured the italians kept going.
England needs to produce some rugby if they don't want to be spanked by Wales.

Wales seal victory with late kick in Six Nations thriller against Ireland

Great game overall. Very good back line from the welsh, awesome work for George North on the second Davies try.
Ireland played a good game but Wales deserved the final win even though the last penalty is harsh because Ferris doesn't seem to really tip the player over. Penalty maybe but no yellow.
The first yellow card on Bradley Davies should have been red because he clearly makes an effort to put the player into the ground head first and with no ball! Straight red from me.

Young hooker Christopher Tolofua demolishes fullback Juan Imoff

The best part in this is that he doesn't charge at Imoff, he just pushes him with one hand. I'd love to see the result if he does the same with his shoulder.
He's also got years ahead of him to improve, we'll need to keep an eye on him.

Montpellier turn it on at home against Stade Francais

Trinh-Duc just showed everybody that he can kick in the game, brilliantly. Nagusa was really intelligent on this action, he's been playing very well with Montpelier for a while now.
Doesn't matter where you place Gorgodze, he's everywhere! He's also on support on the first try.

Toulon grab bonus point try with time up against Lyon

The commentators also said that Wilkinson's drop kick conversion went too fast for the line refs so they had to check the video.
Good speed by Alexis Palisson and great team effort to keep the ball in play after a few mistakes.

Toulouse stay top after bonus point win over Connacht

Even when they don't play very well, Toulouse has such a great back line with Medard and Matanavu.
Louis Picamoles is very active even though he doesn't always make the pass right he can be very dangerous.
Simply what a run from Johnston! Even the props love to run in this team.
