Wales edge Argentina for confidence building win

100% agree. And I'm delighted that this act of twattery is so far the most discussed moment of the game. Because that shows that this behaviour still stands out as heinous and unacceptable. Refs and/or authorities have got to clamp down on this prick very soon though or others will copy and we'll be on the slippery slope to wendyball.

England break their Springboks hoodoo with convincing win at Twickenham

Quite right Jimmy. If there are fewer than 8 points separating the scores, by all means get the ball off the park. Otherwise, play on!

As Eddie said himself, if you worry too much about what the media say, very soon you'll find yourself up in the stands with them (instead of coaching the team).

Kuridrani scores late try as Australia break Scotland hearts again

Abject failure on Friday night (football) to glorious failure on Saturday. A tremendous uptick in fortunes for Scotland and about as good as it gets I reckon.

Scotsman's haunting Craig Joubert movie ahead of Wallabies rematch

Stu, we've watched the same footage. I say tomato you say tomayto. In this case Monsieur Poite said tomayto also. I still maintain I'm right. :)

Scotsman's haunting Craig Joubert movie ahead of Wallabies rematch

Well a bit simple perhaps, but I've been sharing my I'll-informed opinions on thee esteemed pages for long enough now that I don't think one more can hurt.

I do get a bit sensitive when I see rugby refs being attacked, and satire/parody only offers minimal mitigation. It's a slippery slope mate - one minute you're having a laugh, the next you've got half a dozen players barracking the ref and waving imaginary cards.

Just to clarify, I didn't complain about the other refereeing decision, I just pointed out that mistakes happen.

Well I don't think the oxygen of your own feature on Rugbydump should be given to a sore loser still complaining about a refereeing decision a year after the event. I know the voodoo and the dartboard are meant in gest, but this is footballers' BS reminiscent of the David Beckham effigies in 1998.

Let's not forget how flukey Scotland were in getting this far anyway. The previous match v Samoa, missing their talismanic captain and wrecking ball Alesana Tuilagi, because of a genuinely heinous decision by the officials (banned for running along a rugby pitch with the ball in his hands). How about that blatant knock-on by Laidlaw directly under the nose of ref Romaine Poite - https://youtu.be/rjAn5IB5XU4?t=2m30s. Pretty crucial mistake by the ref in a "nip and tuck match, with time fast running out" - sound familiar?

I know you (Graham) are just trying to have a bit of fun, but bitching and moaning about referees belongs in football, and not in this wondeful game.

On the other hand, I would love to see more of the Lego re-enactments, they were bloody brilliant. :)

Ireland break drought to upset New Zealand for the first time ever

Fair play, you don't see many Shakespeare references on Rugbydump comments.

I think it is testament to Ireland's collective mental strength and determination in this game that they kept their composure and kept playing flat out to the end.

Best Tries from week one of the End of Year Tests

I actually really like that Japan try. Very creative interplay in the backline and a cracking finish from the wing, who still had a lot of work to do.
