Wilkinson, Giteau and Armitage combine for classic Toulon try vs Glasgow

I see it as a fair amount of quality overlap between the three competitions to be honest. Given that historically the biggest heavy weights of the european competition in the professional era have been french, irish and english respectively.

The Top 5 Crazy Cards of All Time - Rugby HQ

I'm sorry there was far more malicious intent in that than 'trying to get away'.

Official Rugby World Cup 2015 Gilbert Ball Launched

I dont think we do particularly, quite the opposite in rugby. The thing is, its not being hosted by Britain. Especially in the rugby community theres a massive distinction between the home nations, why would you put a flag containing the colours of 4 nations when its only being hosted by one? (arguably wales aswell). Its called England 2015 for a reason...

New #BeattheBoks campaign video causes a stir in South Africa

Lord can no one have a bit of fun anymore! Any Boks can correct me if i'm wrong but i'm guessing its purely the media kicking up a fuss?

Rupeni Caucaunibuca playing well after returning to the ITM Cup

Great to see an awesome player back in action! Questionable interviewer though... didn't take much away from that.

All Blacks retain Bledisloe Cup with Wellington win over Wallabies

I think the overriding feelings on the topic arent directed at either team in particular per se, more whether this particular set of officials have the ability to control the game in the manner that its meant to be controlled. Of course every team is going to try to push the boundaries, but the ref should show the authority (to both teams) to penalise in the correct manner when necessary.

All Blacks retain Bledisloe Cup with Wellington win over Wallabies

The officials seemed distinctly one sided in my eyes! Some appalling decisions made. I feel that Australia could've had a better game if, at the few points that they had the ball, span it out wide. O'Connor and Folau must've had maybe 6 or 7 touches between them! They kept running forward phases over and over, as if all they wanted to do was retain possession for as long as possible but got killed at so many breakdowns. Don't even get me started on the scrums... Clearly Moore didn't take his own advice and learn how to hook.

The British and Irish Lions win the series 2-1 after third Test rout

Ahh but from my view he didn't get as far as grounding it against the posts, did the right thing recycling just in case the officials were a bit hazy with the particular rules, as they so often appear to be.

The British and Irish Lions win the series 2-1 after third Test rout

Actually I did catch that on the TV, granted bit cynical and unsportsmanlike, but i've seen it happen stacks of times and no doubt it'll happen again (granted not much of a justification, but the 25 point lead thing works both ways i.e. if they'd have taken it quick, there's no good chance anything will have come from it and nowhere near enough time for them to turn it around.)
