England stay on track for Grand Slam with win over France

Dude, whether you're blind whether you should check the meaning of "feet".
In both cases I advice you to give up rugby, this is not a sport for you.

"When a ruck is formed players can't handle the ball."
Fritz came when the ruck wasn't formed yet (plus, the ruck was illegaly contested bythe eng side).
I'm fine with your argument that Fritz had to release if the ref says so, but that kinda means that whether we let the opponent pass without resistance, whether we take penalties nearly whenever the ref wants.
That's what I call being f****d without vaseline and then say thank you, sir.

I forgot to mention that Trinh-Duc would have scored a try if Joubert didn't blow the whistle, when Trinh-Duc made a weird move with his heel to bounce the ball back in his hands.
Also the shoulder charge that swiped Dussautoir in the air, the engl player got away without even a yellow, or the penalty right before half time where the touch ref shows the engl fault but Joubert reverses it... wtf !

That's a totally different problem...

Let's be honest, and lucid : how do you think a game like that was won ??
>> PENALTIES !!! And giving away 18 points with undeserved penalties annoys me, what about you ?

Scotland go back to back with tense victory over Ireland

I forgot his name but I found the irish number 12 convincing.

I don't want to be perceived as a sore loser neither but I fully agree with you on that.

I'm not sure about Tuilagi's try, of course it's not a beautiful try but can't see any reason to not accept it. I don't blame Joubert for Trinh-Duc fake knock-on either because any referee could have wistled that and he didn't see the TMO...

BUT... on the overall, I found the ref outrageous on many penalties accorded to the english side (especially on rucks, but not only), the 2 last penalties being imo very representative of his severity (3:55 the ref shouts "13" while 13 can't move or is moving away for the engl side and clearly shows that he doesn't obstruct the ruck.... 4:10 number 23 is legally going for the ball and was not involved in the tackle, he's on his feet while the eng player trying to clear him is not, Joubert asks him to let the poor Ashton alone... WHY ????)

Other examples I have in mind :
During a sideline the engl side collapsed the french jumper who crashed on the ground (that's a yellow card as far as I know about correct refing)..., frequent use of the hand from engl players in the ruck..., maybe not penalisable but huge lack of fairplay from both the engl side and the ref too (Farrel : I think everybody noticed, and also after the french try the engl side keeping the ball and when Parra gets it the ref comes and says "25 seconds").

I didnt watch the game again and I forgot a lot of other details but I was truly shocked and disgusted and I feel like this ref shouldn't ref anymore games involving France again.

Samoa stun Wales with impressive win at the Millennium Stadium

Quoting RD:
"A few discussion points:
- The big tackles, including some from honourary Samoan, Jamie Roberts
- Wales' failed gameplan - where to from here?
- George Pisi brilliance in the corner
- Can Samoa upset France too?
- How do Henry and Andy Tuilagi not feel the cold?"

2 additional questions:
- Ashley Beck's try... Do you think he was offside ?
- The clearance at 2'35" in the video: does it deserve a citing ? (player using the elbow to strike the opponent, clearly a malicious play imo)

Vincent Clerc late hit results in Julien Saubade injured for rest of season

So we both agree, amazing.

You don't get it.
What Gonzoman and Juggernauter explained is that you don't have to take in account injuries in these cases (and I agree with them).
Wether the player results injured or not is not relevant, only the mere action should be taken in account : late tackle.
So let's just imagine Saubade was 100% fine, would you still think Clerc deserves a ban ? (I don't)

Moreover, this kind of injury is tricky, in given conditions any tackle from the side could induce it.

Sour grape ! One year later and still in the denial... Stop lying to yourself, and stop soiling the name of such a player, Clerc is a legend of skill and humility in the world of rugby, not the cocky and malicious kind.
Fortunately the decision is still to competent authorities to be taken... not welsh haters... lol
