Danny Care brilliant inside flick sets up Matt Hopper try vs Clermont

I was thrilled when I saw he wasn't available for the 6N. I think that he has proved himself to be a terrible role model off the pitch, and I find his performances on the pitch to be central to the the slow paced and unthreatening nature we've come to see from England over the last 10 years.
I get that he can be dangerous in right situation, but I think he kills off any dynamic play whenever he plays for England.

Antoine Burban's huge covering tackle on Perpignan's Watisoni Votu

I just had a look back, and it looks to me like the Stade player was the one trying to block the perpignan man

I'm most impressed by the no 6 getting there in the first place, great work rate!

Sebastien Chabal knocks out Marc Giraud with big right hook

It really amazes me that referees correctly identify something as a punch, and then give the player a yellow. That is not the rules, why do they think that they can change what is in the rule books? The ref did it in the Quins match on sunday and it just leads to inconsistency and players not knowing where they stand with the rules.

Sebastien Chabal knocks out Marc Giraud with big right hook

I hate it when people say things like "it is part of the game whether you like it or not" in defence of something that is unquestionably negative. Fighting and dangerous tackles were a part of our game, just as doping was a part of cycling, but at some stage some one in both sports decided that things had to change and it is for the better that they did. Don't just ignore it because it will be hard to change

Newcastle's Richard Mayhew crunches Harlequins' Sam Smith

I find the posturing particularly embarrassing because IMO it was actually a technically pretty poor tackle. He only came out on top because of the weight difference in his favour. Had Smith been the same size or bigger I think Mayhew's back would have folded and he would have been embarrassingly bumped.

Nick 'Honey Badger' Cummins interviews Wallaby players after Wales win

Whatever, I'll do my best not to share my opinions any more so that I don't annoy you.

Nick 'Honey Badger' Cummins interviews Wallaby players after Wales win

Ha, his eye brow is weird, and that alone makes it difficult for me to take him seriously. At least Nonu's hair is done in a style, it is not a style that would suit a lot of people, but there is a plan going on, where as Cummins is just a mess. This is no way detracts from my rating of these two as rugby players, I just think that if I were Australian I might be a bit annoyed that he shows up to represent his country looking like dog.
God I sound old

There is plenty of variety in between jarheads and whatever that is.
I just find it difficult to take him seriously as a player or an athlete looking the way he does.
