O2 Inside Line - Six Nations 2012, episode 1

I've got a feeling it's gonna be a rough year or two for England rugby..There's been such a large overhaul from the world cup and so much new young blood brought into the team I can't see them being overly successful in the beginning as the team learns to gel together...I really think the RFU messed up big time...They completely mishandled the world cup aftermath...

it could work out well in the long run however as Eng have four years to develop this new squad for the world cup, much like what Aus did for the last one, but if I were an Eng fan I'd fear the RFU won't have the time or patience to allow them to do so and if this 6 nations or summer tour goes badly then a whole new set up could be in place in one years time again

Highlights of Toulon vs Clermont, including Rougerie fight & Smith yellow

You can make all the "attempts" to catch the ball you want but if we start allowing players to just charge out of the line whenever possible, as the opponent is putting the pressure, to knock passes down, then it'll lead to guys just pretending to catch balls they really have no hope of catching in order to stop the momentum....If you go for a ball like that and especially if you only manage to touch it with one hand you should expect the card.

No 7 Black that is

Fight Night in France - Agen vs Biarritz mass brawl

Number 7 deserves a red for starting the whole thing for nothing..he threw a guy driving at him to the ground and then punched him while he had him on the ground...Maybe give the retaliating player a yellow...

Will Skinner red carded from the bench as Harlequins beat Toulouse

Cheating is cheating..It's all done so your team wins games...Tactical late tackles pulling down a maul as it's rolling over the try line, not rolling away as a team is about to score a try...They are no different than what Quinns did here really, so I don;t understand what all of this embarassment talk is about..Cheating is cheating no matter what way you slice it...

Good refereeing though..Red cards and the ban he is likely to get afterwards will soon stop this behaviour...

Morgan Parra vs George Chuter, and Manu Tuilagi simultaneous yellow

He was on the ground "rolling around" after taking the late and very hard hit..How can any of us know if he is hurt or not..he could still be in pain while mouthing off at Chuter later..The fact he mouths off after does not automatically mean he must have been faking being hurt...

Morgan Parra vs George Chuter, and Manu Tuilagi simultaneous yellow

Chuter deserved his yellow it was late and he knew what he was doing....Yellow for Manu I felt was harsh has it wasn't really aswinging arm, more him reacing out to grab the player because he got wrong footed..

And to those claiming Parra was milking it I disagree....he just got tackled very hard and very late by a guy that probably weighs over 25kgs more than him...You take that hit and let me know how it feels

British & Irish Lions fixtures for 2013 tour of Australia

Last tour included 2 of the best matches of rugby I may have ever seen, 2nd test without a doubt was my favourite of all time, so here's hoping to another cracker...

Late Toulouse try against Agen leads to post match chaos

it was a boderline call on the ten meters but I've seen them given before..And fair play to the ref for giving the call, which he believed to be right, rather than take the easy route and just call the game up...

I can understand the frustration the the coaching staff but you simply cannot berate the referees as they walk through the tunnel and then proceed to caue trouble with the security staff, who in my opinion were very lenient..I've seen security guards lose the rag over a lot less than that...

Russia's Valery Tsnobiladze suspended for headbutt on Sean O'Brien

I'm sure the hearing saw all other angles involved and I'm sure both teams involved did also...
