Manu Tuilagi's big hit on Blair Cowan in Leicester Tigers romp

Bore off, John. Everyone knows Tuilagi's Samoan born, it's barely worth mentioning now. Far less well known that Blair Cowan is half Kiwi.

'England are favourites to beat Ireland and win the Six Nations' says Flatman

Hey Katman! Between the two of us, we predicted quite well! I got the winning team and almost nailed the points difference; you got the bit about Poite sinbinning England players during the second half and England finishing with 14 men.
Well done us. :)

'England are favourites to beat Ireland and win the Six Nations' says Flatman

Does anyone know how I go about reporting that "Slimani" pun?

I don't even know who to complain to, but there must be some kind of authority that deals with this kind of thing, isn't there?

Tiny Damian McKenzie somehow smashes giant Nemani Nadolo into touch

Wonderful moment. Proves that even at elite level, this awesome sport still is a game for people of all sizes.

Wales win comfortably in Cardiff clash with France

Eddie & Colombes, Thanks for that. Interesting insight.
I like him as a player, attacks the line well and creates dynamic attacking players. Thought he had a very demonstrable impact on Friday's game. Will be interesting to see what plays out, Plisson is none to shabby a player either but I think Trinh-Duc just gets the back line firing more.

England stay on course with win over Ireland at Twickenham

@Reality, I was about to come on here simply to reiterate that I think Brown was out of order and I'd be more than happy to see a citing and subsequent ban for what I consider reckless and unnecessarily dangerous activity.

But I've just watched your video a few times and three thing a stand out:
1. I can't actually see Danny Care doing anything wrong here. Watching live I thought it was a fair cop, but the moment you cite (55"), he is clearly making every possible attempt to roll away.
2. Haskell, who at the time I thought it looked like he was (inadvertently) trapping Care in the ruck, after making an initial attempt to grab the ball was well cleared out and played no further part.
3. Conor Murray really did hold onto the ball for an atrociously illegal amount of time! Fair play to him he still had a vice-like grip on it even after being kicked in the face at least two times.

To reiterate, I am NOT saying this excuses the reckless swinging boot from Brown, but seeing as the officials decided he was OK, the next penalty in the hierarchy should clearly have been against Green 9.

In response to point 1, and point 2, and point 3... in fact to all 4 points, I think he actually is that stupid.
Brilliant rugby player, but it appears to me he is a moron.

+1 to all of that, especially last paragraph.
Itoje so far has been managed in exemplary fashion. Slightly ironic in as much as he's always looked ready and seems to be taking everything perfectly in his stride.

Looking forward to seeing if Billy V can wreak as much havoc in a couple of weeks with his cousin his opposite number. On current form I reckon he can!
