Faf de Klerk massive carry knocks out Danny Cipriani amidst dramatic finish

Yeah, i thought you were allowed to lead with the ball-carrying arm but not the other one. Although i'm not sure.

Controversies galore as Munster knock out Toulon with brilliant late try

At full speed i understand that it travels towards the try line. When you're tackled and your momentum stops, then should flat not be flat?

Controversies galore as Munster knock out Toulon with brilliant late try

Am I the only one that thought the Trinh Duc pass was blatantly forward? Everybody thought it was at first, and the replay shows that it was. This whole thing of calling a pass flat when it's not is ridiculous. Flat has to mean flat. If it's flat but a little bit forward, then it's not flat, it's forward.

Ugly scenes amidst referee shocker as Spain fail to qualify for the World Cup

If it was as evident that he was crooked as is made out in the article and by people commenting then i don't see the problem. It's not like world rugby would ever, ever come out and say, "Yeah, sorry, he was crooked, and we were idiots to put him there in the first place, we'll have a replay of that match". They'd sweep it under the carpet. And this is after the Spanish players' dream has gone up in smoke, all thanks to one dishonest person. So the only bit of justice served is what the snake would get on the pitch from the players. Knowing that someone like that got off scot free is even more appalling, in my opinion.

This is assuming he was crooked, of course.

Lionel Beauxis shocker nearly costs France dramatic win at home

No, sorry, I'm wrong. It's actually the last lineout, at 82.38. You'll know when you see it.

Ireland are now the second best rugby team in the world

Yes, Rob Kearney has a similar number of accolades, but it doesn't mean he's good or in form. By your logic, Sergio Parisse was a terrible player because he doesn't have any silverware.

Lionel Beauxis shocker nearly costs France dramatic win at home

Regardless of the fact that Beauxis should clearly be sacked and never play professional rugby again, did anyone else think it was incredible that the English hooker's dummy throw into the lineout wasn't penalised? It was so blatant too, and that blindingly obvious decision would have avoided Beauxis making himself an international laughing stock.

Ireland are now the second best rugby team in the world

Post BOD, ok, but post Darcy? Darcy had become a joke by the end of his career. Too small to defend, too small to do crash ball (which he still tried to do every time).

Anyway, aside from that, yes, the depth at centre is pretty impressive. Don't forget that Stuart McCloskey at Ulster seemed like another big talent only to be overshadowed by Ringrose et al.

A look at England and Georgia's epic scrum training session

Yeah, seeing Georgia get beaten even worse than Italy would be a great idea.

Anscombe try disallowed by TMO as England edge Wales at Twickenham

Are you actually joking? Back off his hand into his knee? So the ball was travelling forward at pace, but somehow it magically completely changed direction on contact with his fingers, and this change of direction is clearly visible in the milliseconds between it hitting his fingers and it hitting his knee? So even though all logic would suggest it's a knock-on, it's actually not?

Just admit that it wasn't a try.
