Toulon chairman Mourad Boudjellal on building the champion club

Its turning into the EPL. No player development, or stories about how xyz player overcame the odds and fought hard.

Just rich guys paying for players who were already good. Winning becomes meaningless.

All Blacks retain Bledisloe Cup with Wellington win over Wallabies

Cheers mate. While I agree that my AB's do commit some professional fouls the space of a game, they can't be held unfairly accountable for all transgressions that take place on the pitch as you've suggested.

Hooper, seems to be lingering offside on occasion, playing others off the ball or guilty of shepherding a bit. He's doing what most 7's in Oceania are taught, and that is to test the referee and get as much ball as possible.

So, in other words, people only notice what they want to notice.

Andre Taylor scores again with brilliant finish against the Rebels

Andre Taylor is a great runner and player, has been likened to that of Christian Cullen, but it seems he has the also same disease that Cullen had; backs himself TOO much and doesn't take note of his support players.

John Hart used make Cullen hold onto a ball 24/7 while on tours so that he would get sick of it and want to pass it during games!

Manu Tuilagi tip-tackle citing dismissed ahead of South Africa tour

Well done. I think you've hit the main point on the head here. There was nothing wrong with Tuilagi's tackle, but the fact that Hayman's was similar and gets 4 weeks off raises the inconsistency issue.

Quade Cooper returns after seven months off through injury

I was willing to watch this video to see if Quade had grown as a person and to see if he wasn't such a putz as initially interpreted by many. Unfortunately, this video confirms only a little improvement.

Quade Cooper returns after seven months off through injury

You have got to be KIDDING! All incidents with Macaw show Quade ALREADY ON HIM OR HAVE STRUCK HIM. There is zero footage of an attack or an initiating blow of any sort by Macaw. You're reading too much into what Macaw supposedly does.

Quade Cooper returns after seven months off through injury

Completely agree. Quade seemed to miss the point.

Tai Tuifua's dangerous flying tackle on Nicky Robinson

Don't forget he left his feet and dived at the player!

Calum Clark banned for 32 weeks for breaking another player's arm

Great! I was sickened to see him behave the way he did. If the ban is not long enough, then hopefully the shame of being "that guy" throughout his career will go some way towards preventing this behaviour creeping into our game.
