Jacques Burger's tackling masterclass on Rugby Tonight

From where I'm standing, Burger is one of the best overseas signings a Premiership team has ever made (though I'm open to more suggestions!). Absolutely whole-hearted in every way; glad he's fit again.

Georgia stun Samoa in historic game in Tbilisi

I love the pride and respect on show - this kind of video makes me hopeful for the world, not just rugby. Well done Georgia, well done Samoa.

Friday Funnies - George Ford's Innovative Kick

Bath look like they have the core of a very strong all-round team - good news.

Ford is a great signing (along with Jonathan Joseph, Anthony Watson etc.) and will be top-level before long. Has anyone seen how his defensive game is coming along? He's certainly beefed up a bit since leaving his teens, but never seems to get low enough in the tackle.

George North sets up great try but Gloucester sneak controversional win

When Twelvetrees kicked away that piece of possession to North (even in his own 22), you could hear the groan from the home-crowd. Never kick it to North!

"George North deliberately pushed Israel Folau"

... who had the ball in his hands.

James Horwill cleared after alleged stamp on Alun-Wyn Jones in first Test

End of the series for Horwell: intentional stamp (as opposed to rucking the player off the ball, which I never have a problem with), and no mitigating factors like provocation.

Plus, stamping on the face of a prone man is nasty, dangerous, and cowardly.

Wales and England to meet in Junior World Championship final

What is that lovely pattering sound after each score?
Could it be APPLAUSE?!

Who'd have thought that rugby could be played without pointless celebratory music being played at every available moment?

Tongan Eddie Aholelei punches Jebb Sinclair after fight with Canada

The Canadian hooker (Ray Barkwill) didn't get anything because - as the ref says repeatedly when talking to his touch-judges - he wasn't identified.

Retrospective action could be taken, but the footage doesn't really show anything.

As for the sinbinnings, I thought they were both f--king AWFUL 'tackles'. Tonga deserves better than to be represented like this. And shame on the coach too - absolutely no need for that.

England stay on track for Grand Slam with win over France

Quite right. France should have won the World Cup - I think whining at Joubert is the least you should do!
