Georgia and Romania Rugby World Cup 2015 qualification highlights

The IRB needs to help out. Maybe ultimately a 6 Nations B with promotion and relegation?

I remember reading at the WC they were playing one of the big boys. At halftime when the opposition goes into the locker room for recovery drinks, statistical and video analysis, and whatever else the Georgians just sat on the field sharing a crate of apples listening to their coach!

I think basically they are just a big strong people that have the right cultural mentality for the game.

I think Georgian rugby is so cool. They have next to no resources, an amateur domestic league, a small player pool, and they still produce outstanding players (especially in the pack).

Watching Georgia get increasingly better over the past 10 years has been one of the most positive stories in our sport.

Wales bounce back with strong win over France in Cardiff

Why did Picamoles get a yellow, hands in? And what's up with these jerks patting him on the head? Very unsportsmanlike.

Francisco Chaparro red carded and banned for 10 weeks for tip tackle

I'm not saying this player should not be sent off, but players lose their feet at almost every breakdown these days and keeping your feet is a "Law of the Game". It's not the 10 Commandments we're talking about.

I personally have never seen anything that warrants a 10 game ban (with the exception of an eye gouge and an assault on a referee). If suspending players is such an important part of what the IRB does they should codify the punishments to fit the infringement.

Somebody needs to punch Mike Phillips in the face. He's such a moron.

Friday Funnies - Nigel Owens tells off Mike Brown and Yoann Huget

Letting what go? That wasn't much of a head butt. Sending somebody off for a minor bit of head to head contact is out of proportion to such a non-event.

When I ref kids' games and kids start getting chippy with each other I make the two players shake hands. Refs used to do this all the time and 4 out of 5 times it works to de-escalate. They still squeeze the hell out of the other guy's hand, the same way we used to though!

Keep 30 guys on the field unless they leave you no option.

Mouritz Botha crunches Jean Deysel in Saracens vs Sharks friendly

This is the future. Champions League style international club matches.

Would you rather watch Leicester vs Wellington Hurricanes or Italy vs Scotland?

Toulon chairman Mourad Boudjellal on building the champion club

Well the issue is when young promising players from countries like NZ (say the understudy for McCaw or Read) leave at 22 years old to play club ball in France and forget about Super 12, AB's, and NPC because they can make twice the money abroad they can make at home.

What happens to test rugby then?
