Yes, in women's rugby, tight heads wear 14 and stand out on the right wing when there is a scrum.

I hate to be stickler, but should the IRB Awards (flashed across the screen at the beginning and the end) not now be the World Rugby awards. I mean, if you are going to pay marketing executives buckets of cash for a flashy rebranding, may as well do it right. Otherwise those poor boys and girls in far-flung lands will just get confused.

Aside from that, the Canada try gets my vote. How she keeps that pace up all the way to the try line is something else.

I think you have discounted May's effort for the wrong reason. Surely it's the hysterical commentary that ruins it?

Referee decisions in spotlight as New Zealand prove too good for England

IN response to Facepalm's comment, I think the reason it wasn't awarded is because there was no "grounding" of the ball (i.e. holding the ball and touching the ground with it or putting downward pressure on the ball already on the ground). It would be a stretch to say Whitelock was holding the ball at any time in that sequence.

Ireland upset South Africa with impressive physicality in Dublin

On the yellow card, Poite spoke to de Villiers and implied that Strauss's hanging arm on its own would probably not have warranted a yellow card, highlighting Vermeulen's headlock, I mean tackle, on Heaslip a few minutes earlier.

Ireland upset South Africa with impressive physicality in Dublin

I think "no one gave Ireland a sniff" and "didn't have a hope" are maybe a bit strong. Agreed that the consensus among pundits and fans was a likely SA win, but probably not by more than one or two scores. But that is based on both teams playing pretty much to their potential, nobody having an off-day, no dodgy refereeing decisions etc. And how often does that happen in a modern day test match??!!

European Rugby Champions Cup Tries of the Week - Round 1

I am biased, but that Ulster try is a thing of beauty.

We're not the All Blacks, we're Ulster?

Ben Flower red carded for vicious punching at start of Super League Grand Final

Six months.

You have to think that five and a half of those are for the second punch.
