Celebrating Dan Carter's milestone of 100 Super Rugby games

I try and avoid these debates because it's a bit of a chicken or egg argument. But as good as DC is and even if I personally think he's probably the best 10, he's never really been at the top of his game in world cups and pulled out a stand out performance.

I know a lot of it is down to bad luck due to a variety of reasons like age, ref decisions and injuries but in WCs he just hasn't had a headline moment. Purely on that basis you can make a case for some of the fly halves of the past like Lynagh, larkham, andrew even lamaitre being at the top and I think thats one of the main arguments for JW; 2 world cup finals including an assist, a winning drop goal and 21 points.

Celebrating Dan Carter's milestone of 100 Super Rugby games

Absolutely class act, cheers RD.

Over the last few weeks I've watched quite a few documentaries and interviews of players like Jonny Wilkinson, Shane Williams and now Dan Carter and there's a wonderfully humble nature to all of these great players despite their spectacular rugby talents. It's good to see that despite the professional era the best players understand how important hard work is for success and when they achieve it, enjoy it and yet still maintain their class on and off the pitch without getting carried away with the rewards it brings. It's one of the really special thing about rugby and I hope it continues long into the future as well.

Will Skinner red carded from the bench as Harlequins beat Toulouse

Whats with the comedy dramatic overreactions from everyone? This has been happening for ages. Not as if the French are any better, they get their dads to interfere with play. Plus I dont think many people actually watched the match, Toulouse werent much better on the sportsmanship front and their crowd were a typically disrespectful French crowd booing some fantastic rugby by the Quins. Odd thing is I think Quins play their best rugby when everyone hates them, Thormond Park last year comes to mind although Munster fans are a vocal but respectful bunch on the whole.

Best Tries of the Top 14 - Top Ten so far

Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. Picking a favourite would be like trying to pick my favourite organ. French rugby going strong.

Alesana Tuilagi and Tom Wood red carded following touchline brawl

I completely agree with you, punch ups should be left to be discussed in the boxing forums.

Most people usually watch Perpignan matches with one eye on average. If anyone used both eyes I think their brains would be overwhelmed by the red yellow hazard light omelette kit thing they have going on.

Feels odd to see an England 7s side without Ben Gollings

Yeh exactly its such a shame we are talking about this rather than the match. The Ashton and Agulla tries were absolute peaches.

Yeah that was my point john. A good match overshadowed by a teeny bit of overexcited hugging.
