Ronan O'Gara does it again with late winner against Castres

Please stop spamming the comments with losts that are irelevant to the piece. We get it, you are Welsh and love the Scarlets and making weird posts, but try and save it for posts about the Scarlets at least.

As far as the ROG drop goal is concerned, it is very impressive how well he handles pressure and makes so many last minute kicks to win. Not sure if that makes up for his complete inability to tackle though!

Midweek Madness - Brock James: Great moustache, terrible kick

As a kicker myself I have to admit I have done the same when at the edge of my range. It is incredibly embarrassing and people tend to remember one kick like this over hundreds or successful penalties.

Great run and try, but the tackling was shocking!

Ryan Lamb calls for TMO after high flying penalty

As a kicker myself the reason they hit it that hard from short distances is kicking is all to do with timing and rythym. If you tried to kick it softer it would mess that up. That is why you often see kicks from greater distances miss, not cause the distance is too far, but because the timing changes when you try and kick it harder (or softer)

Mike Tindall sacked and fined by the Rugby Football Union

This is ridiculous! The RFU are blatantly trying to make up for Englands poor RWC performance on the field by blaming it on events off the field. Mike Tindall is clearly being used as a scapegoat for the RFU. while I don't think he would get into a proper England team with proler management (another subject entirely!) kicking him out is complete rubbish. One of the best things about rugby is that the players are normal people and will join you in the pub after a game, not some sort of celebrity that would never interact with the general public. I can't believe the RFU are punishing thier own players for what 99% of us rugby players do, enjoy ourselves on and off the pitch and not act like stuck up footballers!
