Mamuka Gorgodze finishes off outstanding Toulon team try in Ulster thrashing

On the forward pass, I agree. The ball travels forwards and the "backward out of the hands"/Newton's first law of motion argument doesn't apply as Castro is going sideways.

On the runner taking out the defender, also arguable as he seems to stick his left arm out to grab the Ulster player. But the ref says "He was straight. You took the dummy", so you weren't the only one to see it!

Mamuka Gorgodze finishes off outstanding Toulon team try in Ulster thrashing

I read somewhere recently that Lancaster was going to use the "exceptional circumstances" card to select Armitage, but only after the 6 Nations (i.e. summer tour?). If true (and I can't remember where I read it), it strikes me as absurd.

As an Irishman, I can only hope that it is not true and that the policy of England not selecting overseas players is strictly adhered to!

Sam Burgess big tackles on Ben Jacobs plus first try for Bath

In fairness, it looks like Jacobs may have got his pass away just as each tackle was made. Very difficult to see from the replay though.

Samu Manoa's huge blindside shot on Leicester's Julian Salvi

Forgot to mention: thumbs down for Luther Burrell's reaction, trying his best to recreate that Ali-Liston moment.

Samu Manoa's huge blindside shot on Leicester's Julian Salvi

Would love to hear what George North says to him as he picks him up off the floor. I swear I can see him laughing just after the hit and those pats he gives him on the back of the head are just hard enough for Salvi, pride already dented, to take it the wrong way. Or am I reading too much into it?
