Clermont through to first ever Heineken Cup Final after tense win over Munster

Off course the amount of overseas players in the top 14 is having a negative influence on the results of the national team (despite this they came second in the World Cup, basicly without a coach).

On the other hand: you can't just compare both countries. The French (for their national selection) can select from 14 teams, the Irish from 4. That alone is a reason to force the team to keep the amount of foreign players low in Ireland.

Clermont through to first ever Heineken Cup Final after tense win over Munster

I guess every professional club/province would like a higher salary cap combined with someone that has the same funds as Boudjellal. So it would be quite hypocritical to critisize other teams for it.

If you don't like the money that's going round in our beloved sport nowadays....well, try supporting a team that does not play at the highest level.

Agree with Howard: I don't see much wrong with the tackle itself although it's close to the edge of the rules. It was off the ball, don't know what the punishment should be for that. Not a citing in my humble opinion.

Paul O'Connell knocks out Dave Kearney with clumsy kick to the head

Since when is kicking someone in the head, intentional or not, not illegal?????

Paul O'Connell knocks out Dave Kearney with clumsy kick to the head

What baffles me most is that it happens richt in front of the linesman with no blocked view, yet he only seems to notice the ball getting over the sideline.

Not sure it's on purpose but something this stupid deserves a ban anywat. My guess: 4 weeks. Which will be reduced to two since he will plead guilty and will show remorse.

Bakkies Botha injures Marcos Ayerza with big charge towards tryline

Given his reputation I never thought I was ever going to say this but...I think Bakkies is completely innocent in this case. There is no evidence of jumping into the tackler whatsoever.

Bad luck for Ayerza and I hope he gets well soon.

Cockerill should have known better, his comments make him seem like a very sore loser.

George Moala suspended for knocking out Buxton Popoali'i with big tackle

As DrG said: it would have been an absolute brilliant tackle. Great commitment by both players!

Stade Francais' Jerome Fillol spits in Peter Stringer's face

Looks like something from the 'Dupuy-book-of-tricks-for-French-scrumhalfs'. With the proper footage I hope they will give him a minimum of 30 weeks. Filthy bastard!
