Italy ruck tactics bemuse England and agitate coach Eddie Jones

Reminds me of when the Rams were (are) a terrible NFL team and had to turn to outsmarting, not out playing, the opposition for points. This gem always comes to mind: https://youtu.be/8fioVbt7eF8

"Will any Italians have this saved to watch back at a later date?"

Well the first half, I should think so anyway.

Scotland end 10 year drought with famous win over Wales

Rhys Webb seems to be a very model scrumhalf: a total twat. If I were a Wales fan, I'd love him for it.

It's bound to happen on occasion when a player dives into the tryzone, no?

Seems the Stuart Hogg attempted tackle on Liam Williams was the same, the only difference being Hogg didn't make good contact.

It seems these days that next to none of the videos on the site are made available for viewing in the U.S...kind of a shame.

Wallabies pick up big win in historic once off Test vs USA in Chicago

I'm not sure the specifics of Todd Clever's removal from the squad - sounds like he and Tolkin don't see eye to eye - but it seems like the Eagles forwards maybe would have benefitted from his experience.

Regardless, the squad does seem to get better and better each match. Great first 40 minutes.

It was on ESPN3 and streamed online for free, but you have to be a Comcast customer or subscribe to a tv service on their list and it streams for free.

France convincing winners over England despite late comeback in Paris

France convincing winners over England despite late comeback in Paris

A quick Wikipedia check states Peyper has refereed a few test matches where the away side won, but I think your statement brings up a good questiom - we can (usually) pretty easily access player stats, test match records, etc., but I'm unaware of a site that keeps international "referee stats" or "referee records"...
