Friday Funnies - Henry Seniloli's premature showboating costs Treviso a try

If I was the Treviso management I would actually get rid of him just for this. Absolutely unforgivable. So unprofessional.

Host selection process kicks off for Rugby World Cup 2023

Of the candidates proposed, I think Italy is by far the best. SA has too many security problems, hosted it before and will be hosting a Lions tour around that time. Italy is a country where there's enough critical mass for there to be good interest and enough familiarity of rugby for it to be a success. It'd be great to see it in Ireland, but I think there'd be far more benefit in having it elsewhere.

Having it in the USA (currently not an option) means having it in a country where most people don't even know the sport exists. Yeah, it might help to increase awareness, but I think having it somewhere where rugby is totally alien is a bit foolish because there'll be empty stadiums all over the place and the enthusiasm for it just won't be there. Then there are the geographic problems as well of having it as far away as possible from any rugby-playing country and having literally the whole rugby world travel to a different continent to see matches.

Sergio Parisse harshly red carded as Brice Dulin gets tipped up in the air

I love the way big man number 4 comes in and shoves Parisse when he's not looking and then immediately retreats behind a wall of people. Really brave.

Crap decision though. I thought Garces would have learned not to make such horrendous calls after costing Ulster a Heineken Cup quarter-final, but evidently that wasn't enough. And asking a TMO to check how the player landed? Can he not check it himself on the massive television? Is he really that afraid to make a decision himself?

Chris Hala'ufia huge hit then red card for shoving player's head into the dirt

Absolute knob! Time and again he's shown himself to be one of the biggest scumbags in rugby union. Sack the prick, London Welsh!

La Rochelle defeat champions Toulon 32-29 with dramatic try in the final play

Delon Armitage, Bakkies Botha, Bryan Habana, Jocelino Suta, and now Mamuka Gorgodze. The list of Toulon players who bring the sport into disrepute continues to grow.

France U18s win the European Championship and give hope to the future

If Italy and Scotland don't deserve their places based on history and proximity, who does? Georgia would be absolutely hammered in every match if they took part, just like every other team in Europe outside of the Six Nations, and would have absolutely zero chance of winning against Ireland, Wales, England and France - and Italy and Scotland, for that matter.

And I'd say based on history Scotland do deserve to be there. They're going through tough times but they've been there for over a hundred years and in the past were pretty successful.

David Pocock's Turnover Masterclass against the Blues

I count two good ones and two bad ones. Half a master-class in turnovers, half a master-class in playing to a crap referee.
