Danny Cipriani goes through his rap sheet on the Clare Balding Show

Well he's very philosophical about it, but I think it's completely wrong that a brilliant young talent had his career pulled out from under him because of a few total non-stories. Shame on Brian Ashton for bowing down to the more rabid and pathetic elements in the media who created such a shit storm out of the nightclub "incident". These cretinous, jealous little scumbags who simply can't stand to see people succeed.

Richard Hibbard and Sione Kalamafoni double hit on Brad Barritt

Eddie-g, I agree, for his defensive reliability the bloke is worth his weight in gold.

Midweek Madness - Lee Jones prevents Fijian try after casual effort to score

Couldn't have put it better than the commentator did:
Get that in ya son! Not on my watch son!

Fiji beat Samoa in action packed final to win Gold Coast Sevens

Awesome final. Watching live I really thought for a minute Samoa were going to do it - back from, what was it, 26-0 down. Sterling effort.

Best bit on this post - 50-55 seconds in on video #2. I can't stand all that showboating / timewasting / cocking about all sevens players seem to do when they should be dotting the bloody ball down. Delighted to see someone smashed in the process.

Richard Hibbard and Sione Kalamafoni double hit on Brad Barritt

1) Incredible resilience to absorb the tackle and great composure to present clean ball.

2) Gloucester outside centre had rushed way out of the defensive line creating a huge dogleg. Barritt surely could see the empty space behind that defender but chose instead to run into VERY heavy traffic.

I'm actually a big fan of the bloke, but it's this kind of decision-making that makes me hope Lancaster picks someone like Eastmond over him for England.

I may be mistaken, as I'm only judging from this clip. Also the last thing I want to see is a centre running laterally, but from the comfort of my armchair it looks like he should have at least been able to get round the guy with the headband.

Sonny Bill Williams back in the ITM Cup for Counties Manukau

Ah, Sounds like there's more to that story than I realised then. Maybe I should have taken the time to read about it more before posting. All I read about was a leaflet that was admittedly quite derogatory towards female rugby players and also referred to the barmaid at some pub as a minger, plus a couple of other things like that. Didn't know about any of the stuff you mention.

Sonny Bill Williams back in the ITM Cup for Counties Manukau

@Rich - my comment was kind of tongue-in-cheek too mate, didn't mean to sound preachy. You may have noticed I was also lamenting how far to the opposite extreme we've come in England, where a university actually bans its own team based on a few rude but mostly quite amusing jokes.

Midweek Madness - Probably the worst lineout throw ever

I've seen worse...

Come to think of it, I've seen worse let go by the ref.

Mate, I wouldn't kick her out of bed even if she did a massive fart and followed through on the sheets.

I see proper old-school sexism is alive and well in some parts of the world...

I watched this video immediately after reading that a London university's rugby team has been banned for a year, because of some comedy player recruitment leaflet they put out at the freshers fair. No doubt a lot of the content was misogynistic and uncouth, but banning the team altogether seems a bit harsh.

Fortunately there still remains a massive middle ground.

PS - the blonde bird needs to cut back on her bloody cigarettes and don't tell me that husky voice is alluring, it is just irritating.
