Jonny Sexton's great pass sets up Brian O'Driscoll try vs Cardiff Blues

Haha, the synchronic essentialism on display in this thread is overwhelming. It's like reading a 19th century colonialist travel book. Hilarious!

Edinburgh Rugby upset Toulouse in Heinenken Cup Quarter Final

Most expected Ulster to win? Not including bookies, punters, and mainly the general rugby population given that Munster were the only team with 100% record and were at home, where they only lost once before in the HC. But well done Ulster and well deserved. Now go on and win it!

Laidlaw is probably up there with the best when it comes to technique and skill, but the reason he will not be selected for the Lions is not because he is not big enough(?), or whether his kicking from hand isn't powerful enough(?), or his passing. It is because he's one of the poorest tacklers.

Ireland beat Scotland in eventful Six Nations clash in Dublin

Earls was sprinting, Evans pulled his arm back while running laterally. Although it was a very slight pull, this unbalanced Earls and his left foot clipped his right. I highly doubt he dived as I think that he believed he would've got there first.

Rob Vickers cited following yellow card punch on Joe Marler

Yet another example of a gutless linesman - calling it a slap and not a punch. And they want to referred to as assistant referees!?

France vs Ireland ends in disappointing stalemate in Paris

Would love to see it happen Pretzel but that would require the domestic leagues shortening their season as the calender is pretty full. The French Federation has already kicked up a huge fuss about the rescheduling of the French/Irish game. Can't see it happening soon though.

France vs Ireland ends in disappointing stalemate in Paris

It has surprised me because Kidney never makes a bad comment about refs even if he feels there is bias...but on this occasion I have to agree with him. Pearson completely lost control in the 2nd half, giving penalties for reasons that were incredibly inaccurate, his officiating of only one side with the offside rule and his inconsistency at the breakdown. Unfortunately he made a lot of wrong calls that will only further damage his tarnished reputation.

It wasn't you Keith. Pearson, like Joubert in the WC final, decided to only officiate one team in the 2nd half. France also got 6 points from his wrong decisions - the highlight being penalising Healy when he was on his feet trying to get the ball while the French grounded player was holding on - Pearson incredibly interpreted the situation as Healy not letting go of the tackled player.

Not only this but he was hugely inconsistent with the offside rule. Every ruck he'd shout at the Irish defensive line about being behind the last foot in the 2nd half- think he penalised us on 3 occasions for this. Problem is he completely ignored the French offsides.

The 6Nations is already unfair in the way that some teams play 3 home games, others play 2. The introduction of the bonus point system would make the competition even more unfair as it is not a Round-Robin system.
