I can totally live with this decision.

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.

Antoine Burban's huge covering tackle on Perpignan's Watisoni Votu

Hard to see intentions from that far away. Would have loved to see it in cloe up.

Antoine Burban's huge covering tackle on Perpignan's Watisoni Votu

Great tackle. It will probably make the next TS&RB. Nice bit of obstruction in midfield too, somewhere at 0.08/0.09.

Thanks for posting this RD. And best wishes for 2014!

Sam Egerton banned after being red carded for eye rake in Varsity Match

That looks nasty and quite damning. The ref even seems properly annoyed with him. 15 weeks seems pretty mild to me.
