Sinoti Sinoti step from another planet helps Newcastle to victory

Brilliant step. Good recovery pace too, tbf. Them Lienister tries have been sth else too - esp the recent Ulster one .Foly Huck that was bananas.

(pity about Lamour's defense in the 10 mins before the try on the 28th, J Smith sees these things too....)

Cian Healy leads with shoulder but somehow escapes red card

Nacewa seems to be better than the other Leinster backs in their own positions - wing, full back, out feckin half - he seems to be _better_ than the starters in these positions.
And he's a better kicker than Sexton.
35 y.o. Retired and came back.
An absolute animal.
(OK I'm not certain he would be a better out half than sexton - there isn't a lot to go on -but what there is to go on is quite convincing!)

Michael Hooper makes unwanted history with record breaking yellow card

Munster's Andrew Conway suspended after red card for reckless late tackle

If he's trying to charge the ball down, then he should be using his right arm to go somewhere that could conceivably block the ball - like his other arm is. Instead, his right arm is ben at an angle and drives into the head.

Angle at 44-45 seconds shows this clearly. Right call.

Owen Farrell dump tackle sparks fiery confrontation with Teimana Harrison

Harrison defo came into him with forearm/elbow onto neck, possibly twice, before OF does the 'only trying to get him off me' routine. (great sentence to roll out at that time!)

Tiny bit too much lifting in the tackle, but only tiny. Prob a peno by today's laws, but prob shouldn't be.
