Courtney Lawes lays into another unsuspecting flyhalf, this time Jules Plisson

Should we take away some of Shane Williams' tries because he beat a tight 5 forward to score? It's a game of mismatches and how you play those mismatches decides whether you win the game. Big guy v small guy, fast guy v slow guy. Take that away and we have rugby league.

I fascinated by the statement that you don't like his character?! Judging someone via your interpretation of their actions on the pitch and then calling that their character is possibly symbolic of the social media age! As a player Lawes also has a very good disciplinary record, he was banned during the last world cup for reckless use of the knee, but apart from that he's never been in any trouble as far as I know. So disliking him for flattening people is strange, cos that's a large part of the appeal of rugby for many people.

England part of three-horse race for the title after victory over Scotland

I've had boots tackled off a few times and scored at least once with one boot on. I like to think myself as the same as the lizard the leaves behind its tail when it get grabbed by a predator

Brian Moore was going to give Lawes MoM, but Ben Youngs was put on the screen so he improvised!

Controversial yellow card for James Lowe tackle leads to Highlanders upset

Fekitoa put himself in a vulnerable position by trying the hurdle the tackle, not Lowe. He went for an eponymous tackle.

Controversial yellow card for James Lowe tackle leads to Highlanders upset

I think people's issue is that the tackled player made and illegal move and then it was referred to the TMO who then after having all the evidence, made the wrong call. Next time some one makes a slide tackle in football will you call that a tip tackle?

Arguing over semantics! Butchered, bombed, c***ed up. They left too many points on the field. They made 12 linebreaks, threw forward passes when there was no need to, Tom Youngs threw a pass the perfectly bisected his support. They've had 4 tries disallowed in the last two games, they need to stop making errors when the pressure is on

I think Brown offers a good option with his left boot. Plus New Zealand, Wales, South Africa and France have not regularly played with kicking option in the centres and Ireland rarely did before Payne was gaelicised. I haven't seen much of Slade to be honest, so it's hard to comment on him.

Burrell is a funny one. He's physically big, but player much more like a rapier than a bludgeon as he relies on speed and good angles rather than physically imposing himself. I would love to see Manu at 12 to give defences a real worry!
