Munster and Simon Zebo dispatch Northampton Saints

Not a Munster fan. What I know for certain is that you cannot tell for certain if that was technically a forward pass or not. Anyway, no need to get to worried over that. They were 5 points clear anyway and forward or not, a skillful pass which the ref allowed.

Skullduggery? Certainly. Just watch the video and there's one example right there. Most of there scrums are like that. They just don't put up most scrums in highlights so you have to watch the actual match usually.

Sorry, meant to say that to jumping04. Pass looks fine to me. He is ahead of Zebo when he tackles and he is falling forward as he passes. I certainly don't think it left out of his hands forward (it may have moved towards the goal line, but I don't think it was a forward pass). Wouldn't mind a slomo replay and a different angle though.

Ah, right. Not sure how fast he is actually.

Incredible try from Bath prop Anthony Perenise

Great try. Loved the weird goose step and the Maori sidestep. Some really slick skills from Bath, particularly in the last quarter.

Also, at 1.20, look who pops up first - Hartley. And Number 1 (can't spell his name) is going completely sideways. He doesn't even attempt to go straight or bind. I'm a bit fed up of them scrummaging illegally and never, ever being penalised for it. It's so obvious. I thought Poite was meant to be a scrum specialist but he gives them a penalty try. I don't understand how they are repeatedly let off the hook.

The second penalty try was a much better scrum though. Have to give them that.

Actually, it was Elliot. Still, he outran him with ease.

Finally, a real speedster for Ireland. I didn't notice during the match, but in that first break by Zebo which the ref stops, Zebo completely burns Foden (who goes for the ankle tap and misses). Didn't realise just how fast he was.

Samu Manoa and Mike Haywood crunching tackles vs Harlequins

Second tackle is an example of why people need to relax about the "wrapping" issue. He clearly went for the wrap but missed by a mile as he hit his opponent so hard. Nothing he could do. Great tackle.

Juggernauter, you are being ridiculously pedantic. Are you serious? Do you have the same issue with people from Britain being called British or should I say that they are citizens of United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland every time I refer to them. Please shut up and get back to some real issues. Absolute idiocy from you. Unusual.

Top Ten Tries of 2011 from Canal+

Also agree with this, and I'm a Leinster fan. Maybe they were counting the importance of the match towards the quality of the try. There were a lot of better tries though.
