France snatch victory from England in Six Nations thriller in Paris

It was more a general observation of the lineout overall as oppose to talking specifically of Youngs. I just dislike the uneven distribution of blame that hookers generally receive when for a lineout to function, every man in it has to do their job right, not even just the lifters and jumpers but also guys dummying etc.

You've no more idea than anyone else who cocked up in the lineout, pisses me off when people assume the hookers. Its just as much about the jumpers and the decisions they make that dictate the outcome of a lineout. Also the replacement hooker forcibly has to change his lineout game to be like that of the starting hooker so that he doesn't mess the jumpers around... not an easy feat.

Irish hearts broken by All Blacks' last gasp converted try

Equally though, they wouldn't have even sniffed a win if it weren't for Murray's contribution, Madigan was a fresh pair of legs whilst Murray was running on empty after a storming performance.

Wing JP Pietersen's big tackle on Eighthman David Denton

I've only seen him play on a handful of occasions and only on the international circuit but in every game i've seen he's done something which suggests a major attitude problem. Or is this just coincidence?

O2 Inside Line - Season 4 Episode 2

This time it was down to injury concerns with wade and yarde i believe, but generally, agreed ashton is well past it, maybe not in age but psychologically.

O2 Inside Line - Season 4 Episode 1

As a Tigers fan, I'm a fan of Youngs, when he's in form he's without a doubt the number one choice but he really has been out of form recently. You talk about it being different when he's behind a rumbling pack, but the tigers pack dont exactly get shoved off the ball. Recently even when his pack is dominating, he just doesnt fire on all cylinders. When saints played us, Dickson sure looked the better of the two.

Chris Robshaw to lead England in 2013 Autumn Internationals

I think its the right call starting him at 7 at the very least. He's in better form than Kvesic at the moment (no doubt subject to change but you can only pick on current form) and he's without a doubt the more reliable player of the two. He doesn't have the x factor of truly world class players but you know he'll do the job time and time again. With that in mind i figure it makes sense to give him the captaincy although i suspect his days are numbered.
