I genuinely feel sorry for him.

Carlin Isles burns England in semi final as USA fly to London 7s Cup Final victory

USA did really well and Isles seems like a genuinely nice and modest bloke, as does Baker. But please, don't ever start chanting 'USA, USA' in the stadium speaker ever again. Nobody does that and it kind of ruined a perfect performance for me (from a completely neutral perspective).

Manu Tuilagi admits to assaulting police officers, won't be part of Rugby World Cup

Sorry to hear this, both because of the fact he will not feature in the World Cup as well as the reason for it. He is still young, I really hope he will get his act together and be a better man for it in the future.

By the way: big thumbs up for Lancaster and the English management for the way this is being handled.

Tim Visser Q&A ahead of Edinburgh farewell match

Good luck to him. I hope he will find his mojo at Quins and I would love to see at least one more try this saturday.

Sergio Parisse harshly red carded as Brice Dulin gets tipped up in the air

I actually quite like your explanation. Plus 1 for that.

Sergio Parisse harshly red carded as Brice Dulin gets tipped up in the air

Actually I totally agree with you on this one. Lands on his shoulder, grabs the wrong side of his head in wendyball style. To me that seems like the kind of behaviour you see about a dozen times in every football match on the telly.

Besides: some of the French players seem to have a bit of a playacting reputation. So I don't blame you at all.

A Tribute To big Brad Thorn, who will now retire aged 40

True grit in the flesh. Chuck Norris ain't got nothing on this guy. I hope he will succeed just as much in all his future endeavours.

Get Excited For The Rugby World Cup, Less Than Six Months To Go

I see what you mean. I didn't notice it myself at the time but that just shows my lack of technical knowledge of the game.

It does make me wonder about the mindset of the referee though. I still very much believe in the objectivity of the referee. Call me old fashioned or naive. On a subconscious level it would be possible that his performance is influenced by the desire to not have an impact on the outcome by making the wrong calls. I guess the pressure on the referee on a psychological level is immense on those ocasions.

Get Excited For The Rugby World Cup, Less Than Six Months To Go

Well DrG, it was the part *Takes cover* that gave it away. I didn't mean it in a negative sense by the way. To be honest I really enjoy the comments of regulars on this site, including Stroudos and yourself because the banter is always on a rugby-type-level instead of a Facebook of Youtube-type-level.

Wow, that was your daily dose of peace, love and vegetables I would say.
