Thank you for making this song part of my day. Childhood, lived.

USA Women's winger Naya Tapper banned for alleged kick

I've never seen anything like this before. Being tackled into another player and knocking them out. Couldn't quite see what was so terrible about the yellow card offence. I mean it looked clumsy and there was a tiny bit of contact, but if one woman hadn't been knocked out (quite accidentally) we wouldn't be talking about it at all.

I thought the cowardly way the French woman attacked her with her face was disgusting. So typically French to be involved in something like this.

Six Nations set to introduce trial Bonus Points system in 2017

If we're going to play a game of 'Unrealistic Idea Generating' we could add a visiting team to the 6N each year. Invite Samoa, Fiji, Tonga etc to the party. Visiting team varies every year, fans get to see a different spectacle, adds a new element... Never going to happen, but it's a nice idea.

It isn't unfair to make wealthy established nations travel to play a rugby match. England rarely get their arses out to these other countries and make an absolute mint off countries like Fiji coming to play here. The more we support these developing nations, the better.

Play off could work, but it takes place in the country of the team from the lower league. That way even if they lose they get some money from a visiting team coming to play.

Sevens from Heaven - The Fiji 7s Olympic Gold Story

I've not yet met a rugby fan from any corner of Great Britain who felt anything other than respect and fondness for Fiji's achievement.

Absolutely. The Grand Slam remains the pinnacle of NH rugby.

Promotion and relegation would be the next step, in my view, with the likes of Georgia joining the fun.

Excellent decision. While the 6 Nations has given us a lot of really exciting close games over the years, anything which encourages attacking rugby should be applauded.

Sevens from Heaven - The Fiji 7s Olympic Gold Story

I was OK up until the captain's dad was spurring him on with tears running down his face.

God, I love this sport.

Fiji were the most deserving Olympic champions in the history of any sport, ever, in my opinion.
