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

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.

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...
