Calum Clark cited for bending Rob Hawkins' arm backwards

I would say evil-minded players certainly didn't wait for sbdy to teach them techniques.
An arm-lock is pretty simple to realize, even if nobody taught you.
The most important to me is to create laws firmly establishing heavy sanctions for arm locks and those kind of moves, and make sure everybody knows about the sanction.

Actually imo wrestling techniques are useful for the lightest players to clean rucks, as long as it doesn't involve dangerous techniques.
I have practiced judo for 12 years, and as I'm quite light myself I often use that knowledge to clean players nearly twice heavier off the rucks. No shit. But I don't see the point of breaking ppl's arms. That's just evil.

WTF !!
This is the kind of arm lock we use in judo and jiu-jitsu, and that looks totally intentional to me ! More than being mean and in total opposition with the spirit of collective sports, this guy is merely stupid !

And when you know that David Attoub received a 70 week ban (490 days) for an imaginary eye gouge on Stephen Ferris (who had no problem with his eyes at all) few years ago... this guy deserves a 5 years ban ! lol

Alex Cuthbert try and Grand Slam celebrations

The song in the end could have been "Champagne showers" ^^

Nice to see these young players celebrating like that !
Compared to them, a lot of french players on the pitch look like kids forced to do their homeworks. Especially Poitrenaud, he may have too many caps, maybe another year out of the national team would cool his mind and grow his motivation.

Anyway, I think Wales and England were the only teams this year with the right combination of talent and motivation to win the tournament.

Wales win Grand Slam after tense battle with France in Cardiff

What I do not understand is WHY Saint-André decided to start with Yachvili and Beauxis. To me they definitely seem to be the match winners he would call on the field in the end of tight games to kick dropgoals, whereas Parra and Trinh-Duc seem more able to "kickstart" the team and boost the it during the whole game (and imo they are the true 9 and 10 of the team).
And why the hell did he call Trinh-Duc (who never play 15) to replace Poitrenaud, whereas he could have put Beauxis (who played 15 a lot with the Stade Français) or even Palisson (who also frequently play 15) ?? And then he called Parra to replace... Beauxis ! What the f*** ?! And Parra decided to kick the penalty in the end instead of going for the lineout and the try (?!). I don't understand those decisions. Even the decision to keep keep Rougerie as centre and sending off Mermoz (Mermoz doesn't make those defensive mistakes and I think he's as good in offense) is just incredible.

So in conclusion, Guy, I wouldn't say that France's main mistake was to play with the roof open... no.

What are you talking about ? France doesn't play like Fidji.
Playing with the roof open did not penalize France more than Wales, and I actually think it was a good decision, forwards have always been a reliable and competitive asset in the french team.

Keven Mealamu struck with bottle after Bulls vs Blues game

Wow... I can't get a word of what the woman says (but god she sounds stupid !).

I think the old guy was scared enough when Mealamu stepped towards him, he was frozen with fear, a rhinoceros wouldn't have been more threatening XD
