Well it depends on whether or not you only consider International rugby. Parisse has been solid for Stade Francais and is crucial for the Italians. They may not have had a great year, but there are 2 points to keep in mind, 1. It's harder to play well on a team that's playing bad and 2. they did manage to beat both France and Ireland in the 6nations! »
Just as a premise, Barbarian games are generally more fun and lighthearted. As the commentator says he was judged to have moved toward the ball...can't say I agree but technically he's referring to the same law. »
Sorry Mike, in the 2 rucks before that Owens was shouting at our lads to stay on their feet not the All blacks, if you come through the middle you can have a dive at the 9 once the ball is out. When he blew for the penalty it was the 3rd in a row....there's only so much you can let go to be fair!
