Will Skinner red carded from the bench as Harlequins beat Toulouse

Agree Quins were the unlucky ones. Wasps were faking injuries to hide their front row weaknesses for years, and that was under Saint McGeechan!

As a Leicester fan, I agree that doing what it takes to win and getting away with it takes cunning and skill, take Murphy with his block v Saints and the infamous hand of Back. There are those who will do whatever it takes to win and those who are too naive to do it, that's all. BUT it should be confined to the field of play. Like a fight in a match, you can smash each other on the pitch but respect the oppo off it, and in my opinion I think Quins didn't do this. If you're not involved in the match, you don't have the right to have a hands-on influence.

What, making a suggestion based on something that's already happened?

That's how most law changes occur!

Agree this is really poor sportsmanship. But what should be the punishment for this?

I say a penalty from where the ball went out or, if you want to be really harsh, a penalty from where the ball was kicked.

Morgan Parra vs George Chuter, and Manu Tuilagi simultaneous yellow

I hate Parra.

As in he is so annoying, dirty and mouthy.

As in I wish he was on my team.

The Matt Hopper reverse pirate pass vs Toulouse

...Nick Easter and Shaun Perry.

So there's a 50% success rate on later developing players - going on the idea that Perry was pretty pants for England and Easter has been, on the whole, OK.

Biarritz score a sensational team try against Montpellier

Leicester fan here - I am genuinely gutted we let Amarosino go. Either we didn't use him correctly, or he wasn't cut out for English rugby, but he is showing everyone what he can do now!

Biarritz score a sensational team try against Montpellier

Awesome score, great hands and running lines.

Feel sorry for the full back Amarosino, who must have felt like he was stuck in a game of piggy in the middle the way he had to keep chasing down different people!

My favourite part is where the prop offloads and falls over with absolutely no pressure on him!

Stephen Ferris scores a powerful try against the Scarlets

Absolute sit down on the covering defender - the man is a bison!

Stephen Ferris scores a powerful try against the Scarlets

The only problem with that is that you have a pretty one-dimensional back row - they are all exceptional ball carriers (with Ferris and O'Brien ahead of Heaslip) but the Welsh back row showed it up with their carrier, grafter and scavenger combo.

I worry for Ireland that the question will become how to fit O'Brien and Ferris into the same team unless, as has been mentioned, one starts playing 8.

Farewell to Shane Williams - Final try and interviews after the game

Cheers Adam, no need to resort to name calling! As I've already stated countless times, he's been an inspiration to countless youngsters, been one of the best players of his generation and proven time and again he can mix it with the big boys. Of course I bloody appreciate him. My point was - and still is - is that the match did descend into the Shane Williams retirement party. Now if you believe that's fine, great, but my view was I'd like to see him go out with Wales by showing how gutted he was he didn't win the game.
