New Zealand win England series 2-0 with victory in Dunedin

Farrell at 12 is interesting although perhaps not terribly inspiring.

Personally whenever I've seen Alex Goode he plays as if he's an inside centre with 15 on his back. I'm almost certain it will never happen, but why not put him next to Manu in the midfield. He has all the attributes and all the skills and will naturally slip into that role even when he's playing full back. I'm really trying to find any reason as to why he wouldn't be a success at 12 but I can't find a single one! If Goode's not a 12 then I'll be damned.

Usually I'd be the first to criticise Twelvetrees and yes, he was poor. But Burrell was far worse. I'm not sure why everyone's harnessing their criticism against Billy when the bloke stood next to him didn't make a tackle all game.

New Zealand snatch victory in the dying minutes after strong England showing

I'm a huge fan of Foden and one of his biggest advocates, but l would really love to see how Pennell takes to international rugby. The stuff he's managed to do with a truly terrible Worcester team around him merit an international opportunity.

There's a great tribute to him here:

I'm probably going get shot down on this one, but I can't see any reason for playing Wood ahead of The Hask. Better ball carrier, bigger hits in defence, more athletic and physical...just a more effective player. There were times when critics (myself included) questioned his commitment to international rugby as he was heading off to Super Rugby. But his performances in the Aviva and his work rate on saturday spoke volumes.

The Top 5 French Flair moments of All Time

Is there any particular reason PSA's decided to start a bloke who can't even make the bench for his club in the most important position on the pitch in one of the most hostile fixtures in international rugby? And let's not get started on the fact he's dropped Dulin and Picamoles.

International coaching credentials I may lack, but I find a good way of picking a team is usually to select the players the opposition don't want you to select. I'm not Australian, but if I were, I would be jumping for joy.

Flyhalf killer Courtney Lawes adds Charlie Hodgson to his list in Premiership final

It's getting to the point where there needs to be a new section on rugby dump devoted entirely to Courtney Lawes. It's actually more of a surprise if he doesn't make it on here after playing than if he does.

Star studded Barbarians too good for England XV at Twickenham

It was an awesome attacking performance yet again for Daly. Especially considering he's become a victim of his own versatility and has to play every game at full back. For someone who's so clearly an outside centre he sure as hell doesn't play there much.
