France vs Ireland ends in disappointing stalemate in Paris

I believe Bowe got MOTH...IMO Ferris, kearney or Sexton would have been more worthy of it on the day..For the French, Hari or Dusotoir maybe...

Ireland have only themselves to blame for not putting this match away with all the pressure they had early in the second half...Very poor line out play cost them dearly numerous times and towards the end idiotic play on the sideline gave the French posession whereas if the Irish runners had have turned infield we woulda have kept the ball and been on the front foot..

France kept the ball extremely well and really should have gotten the drop goal from the two chances they were given...Superb Irish defence was made seem all that better because of those two poor attempts...

A look at the first ever White Card in Super Rugby

Seems to me they implemented this to make it seem that they're actually trying to fix the mess which referreing tackling in Union has become, without actually doing anything..This white card is BS..Anything of note will be noted by the citing commissioner during the game while he is watching it live and seeing replays..Anything which may go unnoticed by both TV officials and the citing officer can be reported by the individual teams and the citing officer can then have a closer look at the incident...

This white card is going to have no effect on the game what so ever from what I can tell..They'd be better off just making the law perfectly clear regarding the BS tackles which are getting called up for penalties rather than wasting time with this sham...

France feel they have an advantage ahead of clash with Ireland

As much as I hate to say it France will once again outclass Ireland in Paris...Cannot believe Kidney didnt make a change after the Italy match.. DOC should be out at the very least

All Blacks take down coptercam at training

I don't think this was a trick as it wouldnt really be thar hard to hit the camera from that close, but it definitely was a pre organised situation

France leave Murrayfield victorious after Scotland scare

Barclay had released the player and gotten to his feet before he played the ball..Also, the tackler doesn't not have to come back in through the gate after releasing the player so it looks completely fine, albeit highly unusual, to me...

Reds winger Dom Shipperly scores last-gasp try to defeat the Waratahs

What a stupid kick...You're winning, with possession of the ball and you kick it right back to the opposition..Sure it put them back in their own 22 but it still gave them the opportunity to score..That ball should have sat at that ruck for another good few seconds, given to a forward, into contact..Repeat three or four times and that's the game...

Ireland see off Italy with strong second half in Dublin

I'm quiet happy to see Sexton getting the majority of game time as he is the outhalf for the foreseeable future for Ireland..I know it's really early to be talking about the next world cup, but ROG will be long retired by then and we need Sexton to get as much game time as possible early in his career....Sexton is also much better with ball in hand and in defence than ROG who can be a liability against teams with backrows like France and Wales in the NH and pretty much all SH teams...I mean the Irish defence hasn't been great as of late, so putting ROG back in would only be asking for more trouble..

Also Sexotn is actually playing very well at the moment and had an excellent game yesterday so calls for him to be dropped at this point are not going to hold much weight..

Super Rugby 2012 Profiles - The New Zealand teams

Jesus, looks like the Hurricanes are in for a rough one this year..They've lost some serious talent and while the guys they've signed may be good, they have a long way to go to get to their predessors level

No date confirmed yet for postponed Six Nations game

In reality the FFR knew this game was likely to be unable to play, but they were afraid to make the call during the week and so tried to let Pearson take the flak for calling it..In reality the FFR is to blame for this fiasco..Firstly for not having underground heating like pretty much all national stadiums have these days, particularly those of big nations like France...And secondly for not calling it on Friday at the latest...

Also had to laugh at Heaslip and Hari talking towards the end and then as they walked away from each other Heaslip asks him to go for a drink later on...Nice to see from two guys usually knocking lumps out of each other

Wales seal victory with late kick in Six Nations thriller against Ireland

Wales deserved the win in the end, Irish defense was terrible and France will murder them next week if they don't drastically improve in that area...

But that was the worst reffere performance I've seen in years, I've disliked that ref for a long time, he can't ref the breakdown what so ever, far too inconsistent
