England hold on after tense battle with Ireland at Twickenham

Have not seen it yet but based on the huge mutual respect from fans of both teams, it must have been a cracker.

Wales bounce back with strong win over France in Cardiff

Impressed by Wales, not too impressed by the French and their soccer-like antics towards the officials. They might have been frustrated by some of the calls (and by their own inability to do anything usefull with the ball) but that just doesn't justify that kind of behaviour.

Beauden Barrett wins IRPA Try of the Year 2013 for try against France

Danny is right indeed. But there is really no need for him to start calling people names. This is not youtube.

France snatch victory from England in Six Nations thriller in Paris

From a neutral perspective: a very thrilling match. Had me on the edge of my seat the whole match.

I felt sorry for the English. Based on both halves I guess a draw would have been fair. On the other hand: nobody likes a draw so kudos to the French.

Hope the rest of the 6N will reach the same level of intensity.

Wales get past defiant Italy in Six Nations opener in Cardiff

'You are both acting very immature'.

Another allready classic oneliner by Owens. Maybe the only ref that adds entertainment value to the matches he's in charge of.

Nigel Owens shows Anthony Allen the way to the football stadium

Great, great referee!

On tour in the North of England we were loosing heavily. The ref, a local player and all round top bloke, at one point started to make up reasons to disallow tries from the home team. My favourite: 'No try, penalty against you for gallery play!'

Ian Evans facing suspension after red card for stamp on Mike McCarthy

Well, if there is one thing we learned from the Horwill-verdict, it is that you are not going to be punished as long as you're not watching what you are standing on.

In light of that verdict I would be surprised to see him get any suspension at all.

The biggest punches and worst fights in French domestic rugby

I really hate seeing players throw cheaps shots at each other while in the meantime we are patting ourselves on the back because in rugby respect for opponents is a core value.

On the other hand: one thing I dislike even more is players faking their own death without even being properly hit.

I guess there are two sides to every medal (a French medal that is).

BTW: writing 'fact' in capital letters doesn't support your opinion. At all. Ever.
