Five of the Best Tries so far at Rugby World Cup 2015

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.

Harlequins beat the USA Eagles in historic once off game in Philadelphia

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

(The implied question being, "anyone know of such a website?")

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"...

The Shortball highlights wrap from Round 11 of Super Rugby

Obstruction on dummy runners can always be a bit tricky, but Folau on that Ashley-Cooper try looked a bit on the wrong side of the fence.

In gridiron, that'd be an excellent block.

England and France's Twickenham thriller not enough in dramatic title chase

Mostly regarding the implication that two tries for the English were allowed that maybe should not have been, for infringements leading up to them - that if one were to nitpick away an English try or two, one may also end up finding flaws in a French try or two.

My comment was to Matt. I should've stated that. I wasn't disagreeing with yours.
