Nick Abendanon says England players not backing overseas selection policy is 'pathetic'

Well he was never going to get picked! Armitage may have been a better option, but he never claimed a place when he had his chance.
I'm also not sure why we should model any domestic rugby on the Top 14 because the league is skilless wrestling match that has caused huge issues for the French national team. As an England fan I'm not sure whether it was better to go out in the group or to concede 60 points in the quarter finals....

All Blacks beat determined Samoa in historic first ever Test in Apia

I have South Africa Samoa World Cup tickets so I'm pleased to see the Samoa are looking good! The All Blacks have so much more to give when the Canes' and Highlanders players come back, some of their replacements weren't too hot.

Hurricanes set up final clash with Highlanders after big win over the Brumbies

My Dad bought me a Hurricanes shirt from a shop in Berwick-upon-Tweed 13 years ago on a rugby tour to the Scottish borders and since then I've had a soft spot for the men from Wellington. Go Canes!

Laurie Weeks sent off and banned for multiple punches on Jannie du Plessis

I think that was well managed by the team of officials, both got the right punishment

Dylan Hartley facing potential ban after alleged headbutt against Saracens

Doesn't look like a deliberate headbutt, more of bravado fueled bumping into. Whichever way, it was stupid....

Waratahs Will Skelton and Tolu Latu both suspended for double lifting tackle

I'm glad they've sanctioned both players because we've had some cases recently where one player in a two person tackle has been banned, which seemed madness. Both players should have known better and deserve their bans.

I'm sure De Villiers is in rehab from a serious knee injury so De Allende has a chance

Six of the Best - Aviva Premiership Try of the Season Shortlist

Must get tickets to Bath Wasps next season! Either Eastmond try for me, the 1st I think because every player had a hand in it

Flying Chiefs winger James Lowe on defying the odds with arthritis

I suffered from a chronic form during my first year at university and it was devastating. I was running track, playing rugby and squash at the time and next thing I knew I couldn't walk and the GP was coming to my house to syringe fluid from my joints

Force scrumhalf Ian Prior red carded for ugly tip-tackle on Tim Nanai-Williams

The correct decision is made, but how come the ref has to refer it to the TMO as it's six foot from him? And why does it take so long to make a decision? It's pretty clear that it's a red card offence from the off and watching it more times often make it more ambiguous
