Sam Vesty butchers try as Tom Varndell chases him down

Great tackle. I had some fun looking at the related bloopers too!
This is why you should never celebrate a try (before, or even after scoring it). I played an amateur sevens tournament this Saturday and our captain kept on scolding us after each try that we scored: "stay in the game! stay focused!". We didn't have a single chance for celebration there :)

Referee Nigel Owens chats to the TMO, on an iPhone

Haha, excellent!!
Would have been even funnier with a huge army comm. device from the 50s. And perhaps a little Benny Hill music.

Try Savers & Rib Breakers 12 - Rugby World Cup 2011 Edition

I reckon I need myself a pair of big boots to firmly grab with both my hands.

Jonny Sexton's great pass sets up Brian O'Driscoll try vs Cardiff Blues

I think it's bound to happen at some point, from a purely financial interest. Seats would be very expensive, the event would be Superbowl-like.
But the whole time-gap between both competitions indeed makes it really hard to plan. I guess the only good way to do it would be to have semi-finals instead of just one final, this way one match would happen to the NH's seasonal advantage, and the return to the SH's advantage, and both of these would alter each year. So basically take the two finalists of the previous year's H cup and S15 ...

Jonny Sexton's great pass sets up Brian O'Driscoll try vs Cardiff Blues

Hahaha you really got me laughing here, I re-read the thread and realized that we were all doing exactly that!

The musculature of the polynoid male man and the cranial disposition of the English Eton graduate are, in essence, the topic of our much elated argumentation, wouldn't you say so, Sir Holmes? The simple folk here in rural France, from the sauntering weavers to the workhouse paupers, are by no means superior to their overseas counterparts, I'll say not, is it not so?

Joe Pietersen's sensational try for the Stormers against the Highlanders

Superb skills! Especially that last kick, wow.

I'll add my 2 cents from over here in SW France. The sport is so generalised over here that people from all walks of life play it. Small villages around Toulouse sometimes even have 2 playing fields. In my amateur team, there are two shop clerks, one garden trimmer, four unemployed (one is even on minimum/bum dole) -- but we also have a leucemia research lab director, a few engineers and what not ... some guys have exotic sounding names or a dark skin, there's one English bloke and an Australian (we had an American player, a university history teacher, but he's too busy to play with us these days). I gather that my team is a good display case for NH rugby, we come from all walks of life, we're not specifically posh!

Edinburgh Rugby upset Toulouse in Heinenken Cup Quarter Final

Toulouse lost because:
- its lineouts were crap
- its normally outstanding scrum was often penalized by Nigel
- its flyhalf was dull and unimaginative
- its fullback was a makeshift 15 (ie. Jauzion, who has played 99% of his life at first center)
- at 15 vs 13, the team didn't hammer its opponents (btw, the Rennie card was ok by my standars, but the Jacobsen one was ridiculous and undeserved)

Edinburgh won because:
- they held on to the ball
- their flankers are astonishing
- Laidlaw is a cunning marvel of a guy
- a few lucky bounces (which in my book always go, on the day, to the most deserving team)

Jannie Du Plessis slapped with off-field yellow card after starting dust-up

I see that French Top 14 tactics are making it across the globe.
