Six Of The Best Tries from the 2014 Six Nations Championship

An absolute legend. I think I'd be more over-awed meeting him than Richie McCaw.

Hopefully he'll do some six nations commentary...

Personally I think the Scottish wing's at fault. My rule of thumb is smash the bastard and worry about an overlap later. If the git gets the ball away, well at least you've smashed him.

I find nothing more frustrating when I play than when I think I'm being clever and anticipating a pass and trying to cover both players, then failing to stop either, when a straightforward rib-tickler on the ball-carrier would probably have done the job.

Should be. you can always put a "parent advisory" warning on the screen.

By the way, here's another approach to avoiding shit commentary, which I have done with some success. Watch the Sky coverage, but with Harrison & Barnes bloody well muted as they should be, then simultaneously stream Captain Jedi's Alternative Rugby Commentary off the internet.

Yoann Huget gets official warning for faking injury against Bath

Ha, yeah, the apology pro-forma. They should print a load off ready for Delon Armitage and Dylan Hartley - is it something about that name and its variants?? Come to think of it, I remember at my school Dillon was a standard playground insult, loosely based on the word dildo, as in "you dillon, I can't believe you missed that!" - but I digress...

Here's a version of the heartfelt message pro-forma that you can use in your own relationships too:

"Unfortunately there is no commentary..."

Don't know about anyone else but I'd be very happy to watch more rugby like this and enjoy the sound of the game itself and the roar of the crowd, maybe actually hear the ref instead of some dick talking over him. Some proper analysis is always welcome but when you think about it most commentators don't add much, just describing what you can see for yourself.

Jamie Roberts excellent pick up off his toes in top Racing Metro performance

Average.

When I play flyhalf, the centres do this sort of thing about 10 times in a single match...

No, pretty much as Lord Kay described it:
"Just a little push in the chest and he grabs his face."

Very well put Reality. The difference is exaggeration versus outright fakery.

To illustrate with two examples from wendyball:
