Fraser McKenzies comes off second best in Tommy Bowe collision

I bet he won't be blocking anyone else anytime soon. Hard to have sympathy for the guy when his own cheating is the cause of the injury.

#TBT: Peter Stringer's brilliant low tackle on Jonah Lomu in 2002

Aside from one break against Biarritz and another against Scotland, I don't think Peter Stringer ever ran with the ball in his long, long career. And what were the incredible tackles? A tap tackle against Lomu, another against Jason Robinson...anything else? And yeah, a scrumhalf that passes well - that's not exactly a rarity. Just because I don't have a professional career doesn't mean he's a great defender or attacker.

Taniela Tupou AKA Tongan Thor meets Liam Messam in a collision for the ages

Some will say that it's ridiculous that he was suspended for something so unimportant. I'd be more inclined to say that it's ridiculous how stupid the guy must be to get himself suspended for something so unimportant.

Tryfest in Rome as Ireland run riot against Italy

Sorry, but no. If someone pointlessly clotheslines you when you're going in for a try you have a right to complain. In fact, you shouldn't even need to complain, because the referee should see it and deal with it himself without needing it to be brought to his attention.

#TBT: Peter Stringer's brilliant low tackle on Jonah Lomu in 2002

If to survive you just completely avoid running with the ball and defending except for the occasional tap tackle, then I don't think it's that impressive.

2017 Six Nations: The Journalists' Preview

I think he's saying that the journalist in question is talking crap. Wales have been terrible lately, as evidenced by them scraping past Japan and being soundly beaten, as always, by NZ and Aus. A hollow victory over a politically correct South Africa team (for the first time in countless attempts) doesn't change that.

Nemani Nadolo goes full beast mode to demolish Northampton Saints

Is it not kind of inevitable that atheists will be grouped together? You used the term 'religious claptrap', implying that religion, in it's infinite forms and expressions, is all the same thing - claptrap.

Grouping atheists in a group (of atheists) seems quite reasonable to me. After all, sharing the belief (or certainty, or whatever you want to call it) that God doesn't exist groups them together.

Connacht snatch win over Wasps after new law directive calamity

While I sympathise with Wasps and agree that they were screwed over, I think overturning the result would be even harsher on Connacht. They did what the referee said they could do, so they shouldn't have to suffer because of that. And as others mentioned, if they had taken a quick tap they might have scored as well, so it's not a black and white case of this mistake being the clear winning or losing of the game.

Really terrible from the referee though. I suppose it was bound to happen sooner or later considering the constant tinkering with the laws and the various trials being done.

Player banned after filthy off the ball tackle on female referee

The fact that she's a woman makes it worse though because the amount of damage done to a woman by that act is greater than the damage that would be done to a male referee.
