Toulon defend Heineken Cup title with comfortable final win over Saracens

Steffon Armitage was a machine.

Now if the RFU (and most other unions for that matter) can just resist the temptation to pick 6'3", 240 lb flanker because they are lineout option.

Armitage showed us there is still a place for a low-centre of graavity backrower -- as long as he's first to the ball.

Bryan Habana issues apology for taking a dive in Heineken Cup Final

would have loved it if one of guys on the Saracens bench were to hand a soccer ball to the ball boy, and get him to carry it out to Wilko, or place it at the penalty mark.

Chris Ashton shouts 'push it' as Nick Evans attempts conversion kick

Dear Mr. Ashton

classless cheating has no place in the game, especially if we didntt think of it first.

Please, next time you think to shout, pleae stick one of these red pills in your mouth, it might help keep you quiet.

Yours etc.

Friday Funnies - Team mate questions with Donncha O'Callaghan

Pretty rich for him to say someone's not a looker...

Probably thinks he's pretty, considering he's usually staring at Leo Cullen across the tunnel

Outcry as Florian Fritz returns to play after severe knock to head

I think you can't really scrap the 10 minute rule. If you give the player TOO long, then suddenly, it turns into an issue where it can become a strategic sub.

Say, a player is hit in minute 10. The coaches use the concussion rule to play a sub for 40 minutes, and then the originally injured player is suddenly "OK" to come back for minutes 50-80.

Either way, the amount of time allowed puts that player at risk -- too short means things like this happen. Too long a rest, and then a player spends 20-40 minutes on the sidelines champing at the bit to come back, and the tide of a match may turn, driving him/her or coaches to make equally bad decisions.

It's not about the time limit - it's about having player safety trump the wins/losses on the day.
