Paul O'Connell Retirement Tributes from the British & Irish Lions

He is an awesome player, one I was always happy to cheer on (when he wasn't playing against England). I'm sure he has a very successful career in coaching ahead of him.

Yellow Carded player winds up fans, soon becomes Red Carded player

It's about respect, an unwritten code. I don't know whether or not that should be written into the rules, but I'm happy to see the idiot get a card. I'd rather see someone get a card for this than some of the things we see cards for.

I'd lay off the reefer if I was you, mate.

England maintain Calcutta Cup winning streak with victory over Scotland

If England are arrogant to the point where they think, 'we are going to win because we're England', then I think that's hugely unhelpful. That's arrogant.

If it's a case of thinking 'I know I'm good enough to win' then I see that as being completely different. That's self-belief.

I think for years we've been unfairly labelled as arrogant when in fact we simply believed that we could, and should, win at home, or against certain opposition. English fans will never be happy with a plucky loss away to the Welsh, unlike many Welsh fans if the positions were reversed. For me I think that's essential to a successful team - but alone it isn't enough. We mustn't mistake confidence and talking the talk with actually being world class.

This result simply should not stand. It's intolerable.

England maintain Calcutta Cup winning streak with victory over Scotland

Arrogance needs to be earned. We've done nothing to earn it for years. I like the self-belief, but we're not going to shake off the arrogance label any time soon!

Carlin Isles unhappy after being caught and hit hard by Augustine Pulu

Cop a load of that! I love watching him run, but I love watching him get caught even more.

I wonder how far Joubert ran once he realised he'd done this.

Midweek Madness - Bath's forward pack take on a Formula 1 car

They should try it with a group of scrum halves against some kid on a tricycle.

Quade Cooper signs on to join Australia Sevens program for 2016 Olympic Games

This is great news. I'm very excited by the prospect of seeing some of the biggest and most exciting names at the Rio olympics. Would prefer it if every country only send a team of 7 front rowers, but guess I can't have everything.
