Craig Joubert carding Jacques Potgieter riles commentator Phil Kearns

I agree with you all about Kearns and his comments.
But about Joubert, i agree he's not perfect, but at that final, his refereeing did not advantage the ABs.
As a French supporter, i was at first very upset about the way i saw him refereeing. But we got his refereeing studied very closely by a team of referees, both French and Europeans referees. And the outcome of the study was he made mistakes evenly so no team was actually advantaged by his mistakes. And this outcome was validated by Joel Jutge who's now the boss of world refereeing (and secondary, he's French too).

Top interview with 'arrogant' Chris Ashton upon his return to the England squad

It's clear he's far wiser than before, maturity surely. And being out of the national team made him think. That;s a great improvement from the Ashton i discovered at his beginnings in an England jersey.

Former All Black Jerry Collins tragically killed in car crash

His baby daughter is now saved. She woke up about one week ago and she got brain surgery. She can breathe on her own and she's accepting the bib.
Doctors are monitoring her to check what problems she could have.

Hurricanes set up final clash with Highlanders after big win over the Brumbies

Supporting the Canes too :) They said before the match they would play in JC honour.

The final should be great as none of the clubs have won previously.

Neemia Tialata and other former All Blacks' roadside Haka tribute to Jerry Collins

You can ! I was there at the RWC 2011 during the 3 weeks of the pool matches, and it was an absolute blast.
Lots of tribute everywhere, from Narbonne with a march (his last club) to the Henri Tuilagi jubilee changed into a tribute to Jerry last Saturday.
Their little baby is still in a critical state in hospital, keep her in your prayers.

And thanks to Rugbydump for the black "back screen".

The version with the raw sound (more powerful) is here:
