England avenge Cardiff loss with convincing victory over Wales at Twickenham

If I were picking the team I'd have Tuilagi on the bench. Tell Burrell to run his lungs out for the first 60, make the oppo 13 delirious with hard knocks and exhaustion until he sees a 17st replacement running towards him for the last 20. Then he'll do the logical thing and just give up

Totally agree with the Halfpenny comment, I spent the whole game cursing him for his faultless kicking, but was sorry to see him hurt.

Then watching the highlights above I noticed that when Danny care scores Halfpenny is the only player, pretty much, to react, and he takes the very brave decision to dive head first at Care's feet which was the only real option for stopping him at that stage.

Massive try saving hit by Israel's Yonatan Kaplan vs Gibraltar

Gibraltar was part of Spain. Then you gave it away. Deal with it.

Jamie Mackintosh off the ball shoulder shot on Richie McCaw

I think we had a very similar discussion on the video of Ben Tameifuna's big hit on George Smith in last years super 15 final. My opinion is that if you put yourself there to commit a defender to the tackle, then you've made your bed, don't complain if it hurts

I don't see anything wrong with the tackle. He didn't have the ball, and that's an issue, but his tackle is low enough. The only reason there is contact with McCaw's head is because he wasn't ready for the tackle and his neck capitulated. It definitely is not a shoulder charge. We've had the 'wrapping' debate before, and he clearly has arms around both sides of McCaw, he's just pulled out of the tackle so doesn't drive through with the finish.
Great hit, poor timing (/deliberate) and well reffed.

McCaw had nothing to do with Du Plessis, what are you on about?

Policeman tackles suspected criminal off bicycle

Even if he didn't solve any problems, I still have a lot of time for people who are willing to throw themselves into a dangerous situation in order to help the right cause.

Maybe should work on his execution though

Morgan Parra banned for two weeks for head butt on Rene Ranger

If the rules are now to give a yellow every time someone isn't 10 then we should be seeing a lot more players enjoying a break

"Everyone hates spain" but let's make them Spanish! If you love international law so much then stop trying to subjugate people to your government

It wasn't invaded. It was given away by Spain. Live with your decisions like adults. We don't want to be spanish
