Farrell comes off well here. A lot of people dislike him, but he's no cry baby.

Saracens secure draw with hard fought Chris Ashton try in extra time

I thought that was brilliant from Sarries, and especially from Farrell – two clean line breaks in a minute, and a clear head when it counted.

And on a side-issue: with all England's back row injuries, why isn't Jackson Wray in with a shout?

Australia's Women claim historic Gold Medal at the Rio Olympics

Question for the Kiwis on here:
My understanding was that it is culturally inappropriate for women to perform a haka (since their role is different in powhiris etc.) and I see them doing do here. Is this a live issue in NZ, or has it been settled now?

Super Rugby Highlights feed - Round 16

I can't believe that a fully professional team can concede 80+ points. That's so far beyond embarrassing that I'm not sure the right word even exists.

Georgia: Are rugby's Tier 1.5 nation ready for another step up?

All the rambling arguing on this post seems to be about the Six Nations being reshaped, but I don't think that is the main point. At the moment Georgia can barely get a game against the Tier 1 nations, so we have no means of knowing exactly how good they are, and they have no great chance to stretch themselves and advance.

I'm looking forward to the game against Scotland this Autumn.
