The peculiar Vannes vs Narbonne 'no maul' stand off

Thanks Didier - the plot thickens. Interesting as to why this happened. But why was it scrum white, and what possible advantage is this to either side, if it just transfers from a line out to a scrum? Seems a tactic with no real advantage, unless you are trying to run the clock down.

Interesting times when all coaches are testing the rule book.

Sorry, I thought this was the Jp Pietersen tackle on Denton

Scrumhalf Fourie du Preez's big tackle on number eight Dave Denton

Watching live, I wasn't sure whether I was more angry about rubbing face in the astroturf, or whether Denton just took it.

School of Hard Knocks 2012 - Episode 2

Weeks? What? I can't wait that long. Can't you post it now?

Watched this series since RD 1st broadcast. Thanks for bringing this to the masses that don't watch Sky, and can use this to show other people and inspire them, which is what the program is about.

John Leslie scores the fastest ever international try in 1999

I requested this on behalf of the independent Scottish supporters organisation -, as there were previous video's talking about the quickest try ever from a kick off. From memory, they were about 9 seconds. I requested this video as I remember watching the match, and have it on video, and it was just 7 seconds on the clock. It was confirmed later as 7 seconds in the match.

So as far as I'm aware, this is the quickest try ever in a match.

This was, of course, the year when Scotland became 5Nations champions for ever, after the final game in Paris, where there were 4 tries scored in 20 mins, so we'll ignore the following 12 years. :)

Midweek Madness - Brock James: Great moustache, terrible kick

Chris Paterson's kick in the RWC against Romania was not a poor kick, as it first appeared pre-replay. The ball rolled off the tee before it was even kicked. This is completely different as the ball did not move.
