France vs Ireland ends in disappointing stalemate in Paris

Actually it seemed he was favoring Ireland in the first half. At least that was the impression I got. Either way, a pretty poor refereeing performance.

Also, I have it on good authority that Johan Meisry was Man of the Match. (I may have spelt his name wrong but I am referring to the French lock)

France vs Ireland ends in disappointing stalemate in Paris

Well I thought it was a very entertaining game. I felt a draw was a fair result based on how well the teams played and for how long. I didn't feel that Ireland were amazing in the first half, they just had the first try handed to them. They did play better than France in the first half but that was not too hard as France were utterly useless. I thought Ireland did have more good individual performances but otherwise, they never really looked that threatening. A good turn over at the end of the half and of course the intercept but otherwise, didn't feel they could do enough to really challenge the French defense which defiantly showed in the second half as they were unable to register a point.
France were useless for most of the first half but showed glimpses of what we know they can do. they then took control of the second half and did well to pull back and get the draw. I feel they should be annoyed for missing out on a win but then again, Ireland can feel the same as they should have closed out the game.

My overall point is that Ireland looked a lot better in the first half due to the horrific errors of the French rather than their own brilliance. (Mostly. There were very good moments from Ireland especially Kearney and Bowe.) But when France switched on, they looked a lot more dangerous even when Ireland didn't look bad.

The big hits, try savers, and collisions from England vs Wales

I would disagree. In rugby league, tip tackles (such as Warburtons) are legal so why should they be so outlawed in another sport? Obviously driving someone head first into the ground isn't good at all, but going slightly over the horizontal or dropping someone should be allowed. If not, then there should be a harsher punishment for pulling someone down from a lineout.

In the words of Francois Peineaar "Dancing is a contact sport, Rugby is a collision." Great hits in this video all of them legal. A pleasure to watch and a real good test match.

I 100% agree. He's much higher than in a spear tackle and therefore far more dangerous.
