England thump the Barbarians ahead of South American tour

Good result for England, though can't read a great deal into it as the BaaBaas didn't really start playing until the 2nd half. I hope for the sake of English rugby that guys like Wade, Yarde, Eastmond and May tour well and push for places for the autumn series.

Elliott Daly definitely showed Lancaster he made a mistake not picking him. I was amazed he didn't get selected as he's been in outstanding form this season. One of the many for the future for sure.

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.

Mass brawl in French second division playoff between Pau and La Rochelle

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.
