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.

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.

Thumbs up for an oroginal piece of trolling ;-) But I believe you can make this kind of assesment of literally every match. And to be honest: based on the tournament as a whole, France were never going to win it. The All Blacks almost lost it though.

Julian Savea and Eben Etsebeth slap one another while smiling

Nice slap, Bruno.

He seems to be a proper succesor to Bakkies.

Francois Steyn banned for 5 weeks after rescinded red card is overturned

I do agree with the red. The fact that other tacklers are involved should not mean a card can't be handed out. It looked quite dangerous to me, landed on his neck with a few people on top of him.

The ban...hmmm, not so sure. In this instance the fact that there were more tacklers involvolded might have been taken into consideration. Maybe they did, I did not read the completen ruling.

Another Leigh Halfpenny concussion prompts questions about tackling technique

As Gareth Thomas says: he seems to be favouring one shoulder over the other. What seems strange to me is that in this instance he seems to prefer to tackle with the shoulder he dislocated last year.

Well anyway..I am not going to critisize his sommitment or his technique since he outscores me big time on both. I just really really hope his injuries will not get the better of him.

By the way: I wonder how Toulon owner Mourad Bodjellal will feel about this ;-)

England and France's Twickenham thriller not enough in dramatic title chase

Non on the obstruction aussi. At no point Lawes gets in front of the ball carrier.

England part of three-horse race for the title after victory over Scotland

Actually it was not the only boot that slipped of during the match. One of the forwards also lost a shoe, I believe. I think there might be a designflaw here.
