Dylan Hartley out of Lions tour after allegedly swearing at Wayne Barnes

It does sound suspiciously like "you can kick it out" to me, but that must be his accent. Anyway, whether Hartley swore at Wayne Barns or Tom Youngs is irrelevant - as Barnes said, if he thinks it's aimed at him he will deal with it that way. So to lose his temper in that way was stupid, and it's no wonder he was red carded.

More like 4:18.

At 4:20, does one of the players in white slap the guy who's being pinned to the ground on the left of the screen on the arse? Cheeky.

Stormers captain Jean De Villiers smashes Chris Noakes out of the way

Jean De Villiers must be one of the hardest men in rugby. Certainly one of the toughest backs around. What a hero.

Colin Slade finishes brilliant Highlanders team try against the Sharks

Ha, 2 great quotes in here as well. Firstly, Steve Walsh's "don't you...!" after the first scrum. And then Justin Marshall's "I'm out of breath, you take over!". Brilliant.

British & Irish Lions squad announcement - Sam Warburton named as captain

I'm amazed not to see Tom Wood in the squad. I don't think many players epitomise the spirit, pride and work of the Lions more than him. Regarded as the hardest trainer at Northampton and England. Lydiate is good, but has barely played this year/season and has barely had time to get back to fitness, let alone form.

Elliot Daly clearance kick lands straight in the bin

Elliot Daly is class, I think he's a potential uncapped Lion... if not, definitely needs to go to Argentina with England.

Bakkies Botha injures Marcos Ayerza with big charge towards tryline

Few things more fearful in rugby than a second row on a full charge! Reminds me of Simon Shaw's run for the Lions a few years ago where he almost scored from the kick off having collected the ball at full pelt. Scary. But awesome.

Chris Ashton carded for high swinging arm on Maurie Fa'asavalu

Yeah my bad...

Chris Ashton carded for high swinging arm on Maurie Fa'asavalu

Yeah that's pretty much it. He can't make something for himself, but is the king of poaching from other players' breaks. Farrell doesn't have the running game that is likely to suit Ashton. Burns, on the other hand, if he gets a shout this autumn in Argentina could be the key. But on present form I'd rather see a Jonny May on the wing than Ashton.
