Is Carlin Isles the world's fastest rugby player?

Please can I have the lottery numbers for this weekend as you can clearly see the future! 'Core skills will only get you so far' yes a WC and the most time spent as the worlds number 1 side! NZ have often (DC in particular) attributed their success to mastering the basics! Mike Catt complained because English clubs don't concern themselves with the basics enough! Until England beat NZ many people said Manu lacked the basic skills and look what happened there!

Did this guy sleep with your mum or something? You really seem to dislike this guy based on very little evidence?

12 weeks playing and he's already better than everyone commenting here! Must be some red faces typing away on those keyboards folks!!! Tackling = taught skill, passing = taught skill, kicking = taught skill, running really really fast = natural (alright you can build speed up but those with the real gas just have it). It is amazing how someone comes along with natural talent and people on here instantly pretend they know what they are talking about! In the clip he swaps the ball from his inside to the outside and fends brilliantly. There are players I've seen in the premiership etc who still fail to do this. Rather than pretending you can see into the future let's give the bloke a chance!

Chris Hala'ufia suspended for five weeks after straight red card

Dreadful decision. Not even a penalty. Hard for the ref but he should have called in TMO for their opinion! Especially as he considered it a red card offense. As for the CC giving him 5 weeks! Well by all accounts if he behaved at the meeting and showed remorse it should have been reduced by 3 weeks. My personal opinion is that the tackled players movement was the result of him attempting to twist his body so he could present the ball.
Think the IRB needs to sort their sh+t out as the whole process is become a joke!!!

England upset the All Blacks with famous win at Twickenham

Brilliant! England finally put in the performance of a lifetime and it's not the players that get the credit but the sh*ts! England played with pace and ambition and Tom Woods was outstanding. Barritt and Manu finally clicked and Owen's boot was ticking over steadily. I don't think New Zealand new what hit them and the pace with which England started really shocked them.

DC was not in the best form and perhaps Cruden should have started but on the whole I think NZ were shocked. If they were so poorly and struggling how come it was NZ that ended the game in the ascendancy? Surely if England were the fully fit side then they would of continued to poor on the points as NZ tired?

O2 Inside Line: Episode 4, Season 3

I agree Benny. NZ do all the basics right and the rest comes with it. Mike Catt said that clubs in the Premiership need to coach basic skills more!!!!

Andrew Hore cited for off the ball stiffarm on Bradley Davies

I don't know which is stupider Horse's attack on BD or you claiming he was clearing out! You can only clear out a ruck and as far as I can see BD wasn't even involved in the ruck. What you're essentially saying is that I can run round the field smashing anyone I like in the name of 'clearing out'!

If this is what Davis deserves for lazy running then I think it is only fair that Mr MacOffside takes his low blows with a smile on his face! As for another discussion point, what about this article...

Why does doing it on a rugby field make it OK?

I know it says weeks but it does actually mean games. If Hore is cited then he may well miss the beginning of next seasons Super Rugby. That's according to the New Zealand Herald anyway!
