Zac Guildford suspended for four weeks for bad lifting tackle

Textbook definition of a dangerous lifting tackle isn't it? And late too. I'd have gone for a bigger ban if were the citing officer.

Nothing more humiliating than being put on your arse by a fend! Usually easily avoided by tackling low, but then I'm not about to start telling Richie McCaw how to tackle!

Favourite for me is the Hosea Gear one, where he seems to deliberately slow down just so that he can smash Earls with a big fend!

Stade Francais start title defence with win over new boys Pau

Looked forward to me.

1:45 - is that normal to have all that exercise crap stashed in the in-goal area? I'd be pretty pissed off if I was a Pau player running in a try from the left touch line and had to negotiate all that trash on my way to getting the ball down near the posts.

I'm actually rather excited about Slade & Burgess - they looked like a seasoned partnership in the first France game.

The case for them is better made by Sir Ian McGeechan, a person who is far better placed to opine on international rugby team selections than I am:

The bloke continues to go up in my estimation.
