Saracens fly through to Cup Final after dominant performance vs Clermont

I don't like the Ash Splash particularly, I think it is unnecessary and has something of the football mindset about it. However, since we only see it when he scores, he could get his knob out and rub it on the camera if he wants, so long as he brings in the points for England.

Saracens fly through to Cup Final after dominant performance vs Clermont

This might be true. But I think the French might be on thin ice complaining about refereeing performances in world cups costing them. Especially against the Kiwis. I personally think it is hilarious when either of those teams lose, but I was a little bit surprised at how much help the French got in 2007.

Marcelo Bosch takes over from Owen Farrell to land huge penalty kick

I think the reaction from the commentator was because of the contrast between his very care-free and casual kicking style and the significant distance achieved, rather than just the extreme range.

Jared Payne banned for two weeks after red card challenge on Alex Goode

Unfortunately, Goode. He put himself in a position where he was vulnerable. Payne has his arms ready to catch the ball, but collides with goode first, so was trying to contest it.

Like I said above, Payne didn't hit Goode any more than Goode hit Payne

He didn't have time to jump for the ball, he was going flat out and got there at exactly the right moment, Goode had just stuck himself in the air at the same time. I feel bad that he got hurt, but I think that's the risk you take when you give yourself the advantage of jumping.

Payne takes Goode out in the air about as much as Goode flying knees Payne in the chest. I don't see how the logic can be that if you launch yourself into the air you have effectively called 'shotgun' on that area of the pitch.

Carlin Isles dropped ball blooper ruins great fifteens debut try

Weight isn't important. Gio Aplon manages just fine, most of time, as a last man. It's mostly technique and commitment.
Plus I suspect that as someone who has been in conditioning rooms his whole life he may be at his most muscular already
