Mass brawl spills into tunnel as match gets abandoned in France

Absolutely ridiculous... no one should have that energy left with two minutes to play!!

The All Blacks tackle Tokyo in new AIG Japan advert

I think it was the large man jumping in through her window towards her baby that made the woman crash the car

Scotland end 10 year drought with famous win over Wales

I find the constant moaning and shouting at the ref from the Welsh players tiresome. Biggar, AWJ, Warburton and chief twat Webb were all at it every breakdown.

There are times when you can't help call for decisions, e.g. when there's a forward pass it's instinctive to shout 'forward!' but the Welsh take it way too far. Glad they lost.

#ThrowbackThursday: Remember when Courtney Lawes decapitated Plisson?

Would probably be a red now because of the way his head hits the turf first. A real rib tickler

Keith Earls furious after red card for tip-tackle in Munster win

How anyone can try and blame the hooker for his body positioning is beyond me! Surely your only thought there is to protect yourself.

Tucking his head in is an instinctive part of the fall in this instance and I think it's cynical for Earls or anyone else to suggest otherwise.

Nigel Owens unimpressed by naughty Francois Steyn shouting at goalkicker

Poor from Steyn, a goalkicker himself too so should definitely have more respect. Well done Nigel Owens, as ever.

Midweek Madness - The old SOMERSAULT over a tackle trick

All aboard the showboat. I'd do my best to completely nail him next time he was near the ball

Compilation of the unpunished Teboho Mohoje high tackles against Argentina

Doesn't look great. Clearly a bit too pumped up to remember how to tackle correctly. Technique apparently not as important as being a massive lump anymore!

The Chiefs score six tries to thump Wales in midweek match

Where's the value in these midweek games? Win with a scratch team and you've done what was expected, lose and you're an embarrassment. It's not a supportive environment in which to bring through players, nor is it a great rugby spectacle because the team is unbalanced and is just trying to make it through to the weekend unscathed.

I know it's all great fun for the home nation's regional teams, but the unions need to learn to stop flogging their players and brand.

Reminds me of Lions in 2013 when Shane Williams was parachuted in for a pointless fixture. I'd rather watch u20 champ games than this.

CJ Stander banned for 1 week after red card for knocking out Pat Lambie

Was there intent? Was it late? Could he have done more to avoid the collision?

For me, the jump was a bit reckless (bearing in mind the oppo kicker is always unable to brace himself for contact) and so should be punished. Red could be a bit harsh, but players have a responsibility to protect each other's welfare in the tackle, and I don't view charge downs any differently.
