Edinburgh Rugby upset Toulouse in Heinenken Cup Quarter Final

I was at this game, and it was one of the best atmospheres I've ever experienced at Murrayfield!

Didn't think it was one of Nigels best games by any stretch of the imagination, I mean it didnt look like he was even going to bin Servat until Jacobsen started bating him and the crowd (who were immense) stated booing! Also did anyone spot the shove on Servat by Thierry @3.30 after he had just been penalised? Reminiscent of the one by Lote Tuquiri?

Cracking wknd for the rugby underdogs, I mean who would have predicted Ulster vs Edinburgh as the other semi......

Digby Ioane suspended for five weeks for tip-tackle on Coetzee

Another excellent piece of judiciary work by the rugby judges, really showing their consistency. Idiots.

Also, isn't 2008 a long time ago to still be punishing him for??

Come man, no need for that language. Can make your point perfectly well without the first sentence.

Waratah Tom Carter's antics against the Reds

Need to watch your consistency here guys. You cant be asking people to avoid bad language on posts and then put this up with swearing right the way through it, even if you didn't make it you posted it, therefore you condone it...

Gloucester and Harlequins score classic tries in great game of rugby

I agree Alex, but dont guys dont rise to the stirrers on here just looking for a web fight. And certainly dont judge all rugby fans on the few that comment on websites such as RD. We are a far cry from the footie fans of this day! I am sure the day will never come when you are hesitant to take your boy to a rugger game for fear of what he will be exposed to in the stands as you would with footie games.

And some cracking tries here (despite the cynics), a classic might be a bit dramatic but a textbook case of good attacking rugby undoing even the finest of defences. Def a few England potentials I reckon.

France start Six Nations campaign with solid win over spirited Italy

Bringing on Imanol and Para as subs at 60mins says it all........they would not only start for most teams, they would be the talisman. Compare England with 5 debutants....depth a big concern!

Sadly it looks like it's the Frenchies tournament to lose.

Scotland fail to capitalise on chances as England take Calcutta Cup

Couldn't agree more! Hopefully that will be his last game in a Scotland shirt.......

Also was it just me or did Scotland's fitness look very very poor? With >100 phases vs 40'ish and 33 vs 14 for ball won in opps 22 as the stats. This shows that they were doing all the attacking, and yet England looked much more fresh even though defending is far more draining ..?

Even more worrying is that that game will most likely be Scotlands best as we only seem to get up for the England games and the rest we dont seem to turn up for....

But its not all doom and gloom, great performances from evans, denton and gray and hopefully laidlaw will start from now this space!
