George North and Richard Hibbard huge hits in lead up to Israel Folau try

Man, Phillips is such scum. Any word on possible forthcoming citations?

The Barbarians sweep aside Fiji in entertaining fixture at Twickenham

It does. The last try also had either a knock on or a forward pass. But in a Barbarians game, I'm okay with letting little stuff go. There was no real pressure to this game so I think everyone involved decided to just let stuff like that go on. No need to get highly technical

The Wallabies hit back with seven-try win over Italy

I wonder if there was "enough" obstruction to overrule AAC's try?

England beat Argentina but frustrate fans ahead of next weekend

If I'm honest I don't think there's much England did that poorly. The Puma forward pack and scrum is AB-esque, so matching up to them is no mean feat. And having contained the Wallaby and the Puma backline I don't think the AB backs are going to be such a step up. England just went for a different game plan in the second, opting to smother the Pumas out of the contest. Lancaster will know you beat the All Blacks by taking the game to them. Going by the first half England can do just that.

England beat Argentina but frustrate fans ahead of next weekend

I've never really understood the negativity that comes from a lot of matches. Methinks it's mostly PR people drumming up hype. I was watching the game and I was enjoying it for the full 80. It only started to appear dull once the commentators started with the hyperbole about how boring it was. Moreover, sometimes I don't think print media journos actually make their minds up about the game, they just re-hash the talking points the commentators brought up, and sometimes in their exact words. A commentator's job should be to enliven the game, not dull it down, IMO

France vs New Zealand and November Tests Preview video

Picamoles has a hip injury I think and Gallant is very young. PSA probably doesn't want to throw him into the deep end against the top team in the world

New Zealand Maori All Blacks start tour well with good win over Canada

If that pass had gone to hand rather than put down (near the mid-point of the video), and if it weren't for the risky pass inside rather than go out of bounds (by the fullback near the end), it could have been a very different result. I suppose you can say that about any game, but having been at the game, it really was actually pretty close.

Everyone involved in that try ought to take a bow!

The Springboks claim convincing win over the Wallabies in Cape Town

I've noticed Etzebeth does that a fair bit, meaning leap into space forwards not up. It always seems to get him over the gain line by getting himself over the tackler's shoulder. While effective, it was bound to lead to something like this. Plus i think it's illegal since he's going intentionally to the ground.
