Emotional Hakas farewell Jonah Lomu at final public memorial

Here, in our world, with good and bad, he has left "a mark" of his passage through this world.
In the Elizee plains I hope that will meet him Jerry Collins, his bro and good teammate.
What the rugby team, "All Whites", makes it God in his parish !

RIP Jonah and Jerry!

Recap and Press Conference after Stuart Lancaster steps away from coaching England

"There was no need for Ritchie to go the way of Lancaster, because much of the work done under his leadership has been constructive. The hunch he backed with Lancaster turned out to be a losing bet but punishing him with dismissal would only add to the chaos. The World Cup worked brilliantly. Only the England team spoiled the show."

"Although it will solve the immediate problem - fill the experience gap - hiring a coach from New Zealand, Australia or South Africa will qualify as an indignity - and point to a failure in coach development. International sport, after all, is meant to be the players, coaches and fans of Country A against the players, coaches and fans of Country B. But this notion has been shredded by expediency, and, in this case, English weakness.

Should Eddie Jones, say, take the job, then two of the three big England teams would be coached by Australians. There is nothing parochial about recognising the absurdity of such an arrangement."

World Rugby Awards recap to honour Dan Carter, Japan, the Best Try and more

Wrong. All Blacks, more exactly the six of the magnificent generation and their descendants, they peaked career and game exactly when had need. In October 2015.

Highlights and celebrations as All Blacks win successive Rugby World Cup titles

- McCaw, cling the player without the ball. - maximum, yellow card.
- Pocock - red card, no doubt, for kicking with the boot in the head an opponent, lying on the ground.
I think, after watching in slow motion, Pocock`s hit with the boot was intentionally, deliberately. It was not accidentaly. McCaw's reaction is relevant in this sense.

Kepu vs Carter : it was a late ILLEGALLY tackle. ...no doubt !

In my opinion, it was a clear intention of Kepu it out from the game on the Carter. ...of course, "the intention of Kepu" it is another theme of discussing. :)

Lawes vs Plisson : it was "a bit late" massive tackle, not more.

In my opinion, The two incidents are not similar, comparable.

By the way, how do you comment the incident at 25 min. of the match - a ruck -, that passed relatively unnoticed in the media, between Pocok and McCaw ?
