Ireland stay on track with victory over England in Dublin

Fair enough. I'll retract that thuggery accusation then.

when what they should have looked at was the bigger picture, that Ireland has an awesome kicking game, so why try and take that on directly if yours is not up to the same standard - or, as Phil Mc Avity so eloquently put it at the top of this page, "why fight fire with a shitty little flame?"

Well Warburton's was technically more dangerous because Clerc's head was pointing downwards. Healy on SBW, although he didn't tip him, he deliberately dropped him from a height. Obviously, no harm done, partly because Williams actually tried to break his own fall rather than milking a penalty... *cough*, anyway... My view was it was Healy showing off and trying to make a statement. Some would argue that's what you want your prop to do. I just felt it was a bitch move.

Must admit, the fact that I can't think of any other specific examples of Healy thuggery (except the stamp on Cole) makes me question whether or not I may in fact be talking bollocks.

I love this line:
"Late for a backline player, but for a prop I'd say it was just on the limit."

"600 years ago we were something, now it is just a throwback" - I'm thinking Montague or Capulet at this stage. :)

Edit: definitely worse than Warburton - Healy on SBW was late and cynical.

Don't know about his actual record with the judiciary, but I was thinking more about general observations of the bloke playing. The only concrete example i can call to mind right now is a blatant lifting tackle on Sonny Bill a couple of years ago. Definitely in the same league as Warburton-Clerc 2011. I know I have seen plenty of others.

There is something about Alex Goode's body language that seems to make it incredibly obvious that this is the option he'll be taking too.
