Argentina would be a good host as a launchpad for south american rugby - Uruguay and Brazil rugby clubs would also benefit.

Carlin Isles burns England in semi final as USA fly to London 7s Cup Final victory

That's right, think he bombed a try by dropping it just as he was putting it down

Carlin Isles burns England in semi final as USA fly to London 7s Cup Final victory

I quite liked that touch actually - showed USA putting their own stamp on a tournament they deservedly won. The chant itself is a bit annoying, but that's the yankees for ya. Their energy/enthusiasm for rugby is most welcome though.

RD - Baker scored some pretty slick tries too, would be good to see a full compilation if possible.

Courtney Lawes lays into another unsuspecting flyhalf, this time Jules Plisson

Some people on this thread need to get a grip. Doesn't matter about the context of the game, the player's history or the sides involved. Ultimately it's a huge tackle that any forward would want to make during a big game.

I really don't see any issue with the timing and technique. Yes the ball's just about gone, but anyone who's played rugby will know that this can happen when you're committed to a tackle. Mind you, I've rarely seen someone get hit that hard - wallop!

World Rugby accepts George North should have left field after concussion

This will only become more of an issue as players get fitter, bigger and stronger. The collisions are big already and it won't be for another generation that we really see the long term effects of repetitive head injuries on former professional rugby players.

Managing concussions is one thing, preventing them is quite another. I wonder whether one day far in the future rugby will impose a maximum weight restriction on players!
