England part of three-horse race for the title after victory over Scotland

In all my time playing rugby, I have never had a boot randomly slip off during a game. When the laces are done up I think it's physically impossible to remove any boot I've ever worn.

But I have seen it happen quite a few times in professional rugby. In this case, it might be argued that it cost England a try.

When there is so much time, effort and money spent on the minutiae of preparation, ie nutrition, training, rest, GPS-tracking etc, is "Boots that don't randomly slip off" not part of the kit audit?

Paul O'Connell stars in All it Takes short film ahead of his 100th Test

Awesome, really enjoyed this. Perhaps not quite as good as that video 10stonenumber10 posted the other day (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHc2YwdgIog).

Love ROG's contributions on here too...

The Shortball highlights wrap from Round 5 of Super Rugby

2:20 - love that mugging by Fekitoa!

3:50 - the suplex!? WTF was he thinking? I do hope the try was given, because his dickheadery just opened up a massive gap for the guy to score.

PS - where's Seanny?!? I like McCardle too, but these segments need the boy Maloney...

Nothing to do with rugby but I just came across this and thought it should be shared - Falcon-lovers will enjoy!

Both Francois Steyn tackles OK for me. Maybe the second one you could penalise for being a fraction late, but a yellow card is entirely unnecessary. I hope he was ironically clapping the booing fans, not the ref "a-la-Picamoles".

I thought Nick The Honeybadger Cummins had buggered off to Japan? Did that not happen or was it just a very quick tour or is it after this tourny?

@RD - I would be intrigued to see that interview with Cameron -any chance of getting hold of it? Not sure if I genuinely want to see him talking about rugby, but would be interesting to see. I just hope he doesn't do a Blair and pretend he's a massive fan (in Blair's case re Newcastle FC) and spout complete nonsense and bullshit about the games he clearly hasn't been to.
