Owen Farrell yellow carded for knocking out Dan Robson with sickening clash

Reading through the comments here, it appears that Farrell:
- Was unlucky to be carded
- But should be banned
- Was committed to a regulation tackle when a mishap occurred
- But was intentionally trying to cause injury, like he always does

It is clear that since Roman Poite was unable to satisfy all these straightforward assertions with their appropriate response, he is letting us all down.

Highlights and celebrations from Japan's famous win over South Africa

Minor minor minor point here, but did Hesketh actually touch the ball before his try? The match details say that he came on in the 80th minute (presumably at the scrum). If so, that's a heck of a way to make your entrance :)

Ireland cruise to comfortable RWC warmup win over Wales in Cardiff

Much as I'd like to comment on the game, I spent the whole video shaking my head in disgust at those awful rucksack-straps on the Wales kit.

England come from behind to beat Wales in opening Six Nations clash

I think May's tapping back of the high ball was a planned tactic, due to playing opposite 6'6 Cuthbert. And it worked, pretty much – Cuthbert didn't win a single cross-kick – so fair play as far as I'm concerned.

Not to say that I think May should be in the team though – Yarde or Wade are both better.

And yes, I loved Twelvetrees' little psycho cameo. Two turnovers in four and a half minutes is pretty good stuff.

Cheers y'all. I can't help it if I can't take my eyes off those fat boys :)

Bloodied Brad Barritt happy to put body on the line in win over Wallabies

It would only be a repeat offence if it was an offence in the first place. But neither tackle was illegal. Had Barritt not wrapped his arms – had he tackled by butting the player, a la American Football – then it would be illegal, but there isn't the slightest indication of anything untoward.

I'm not saying it's good technique – I'm a go-for-the-legs man myself – but there's nothing to penalise in what he did.
