Yoann Huget's horrific looking face stamp against Bordeaux Begles

That was actually impressively intentional. At the 5 second mark he looks at where the guys head is and makes sure to stamp on it. Realising what he's done he throw's his left leg out very theatrically to make it look he was being held even though you can clearly see he's not held at all. Then does the whole "oh are you OK I'm so sorry bro didn't see your massive head" thing, see's they've got the penalty and decides he's done his daily act of compassion and waddles back to his team.

Nick Cummins' amazing try saving tackle against the Crusaders

Sorry to be a spoil sport but 2 tackles made, 3 missed according to that last graphic? That doesn't sound very honey badger!

New Zealand tested by England but the World Champions remain unbeaten

Strange match in many ways, England had 62% of possession and made only 87 tackles versus 152 by NZ in the match. This probably reflects the dominance of the English pack, but England still don't really seem to know what to do with ball in hand.

NZ in attack were mighty, even with such little possession they made 5 clean breaks and got 3 tries, England had 0 breaks and got 1 somewhat fortunate try.

Part of this is I imagine is to do with the backline still seeming to be a work in progress but I'm not actually sure who England can bring in aside from Tuilagi that I can say would be able to bring the required creative flair without sacrificing some of the defensive solidity.

Brian O'Driscoll's incredible skill at training - Lions RAW teaser

...I might not agree with what he said or think it's particularly relevant now but it is actually a well articulated post and your attempt to dismiss it as the "ramblings of a drunk Irish man" is pathetic. Stick to soccer.

New Zealand come up trumps in hard-fought first Test against France

Some quality tries there, although do wonder if having internationals after a long season for the NH sides is good for the players. But I guess same applies to the SH sides when they visit the NH too.

Also it looks like nonu is missing a whole eyebrow in that picture...

Harlequins pip London Wasps after incredible comeback at Twickenham

I was there, was great! The wasps backrow were mighty, completely outplayed the quins and that messed up their attacking play. It also meant that they had lots of opportunities to counter and wade was no match for lowe (he is a centre after all). I think wasps did tire after the hour, and the match really changed when haskell and masi (he looks like a good transfer) had come off and quins brought in chisholm and guest.
You also saw both sides of the new video replay regulations. The good was when Varndells try just before half time was disallowed for the forward pass early in the passage of play and the bad when the video ref spent an absolute age looking to see if Evan's kick through for Brown's try was legit. Still it didn't spoil the match which was quality. The second match was a drab affair though, sarries thrashed the Irish who looked really poor. Hard to tell how good Sarries attack was with Ashton in the backline because the Irish weren't very good.

Hosea Gear bumps Keith Earls out the road on his way to the tryline

What an offload! Conrad Smith is just class, everyone goes on about depth in positions but he's the one that keeps that backline ticking over and you won't be finding a replacement for him any time soon. His decision making in defence and attack is so consistently good and I feel its a great shame he's so under appreciated.

Also I'm not a big fan of the forearm to bump people off, in fact I remember playing in a match when i was younger where the ref gave a straight red so I can't be the only one... Banahan did that against Kelly Brown a few years ago and that was fairly controversial with people asking how it's acceptable to hit out with the forearm just because you are holding the ball when it wouldn't be allowed from a tackler. I know in this video it isn't the same thing but I still think its ugly and dangerous.

As for Earls, its not his fault Kidney keeps moving him anywhere between 12 and 15 whenever he feels like it.
