Wales bounce back with strong win over France in Cardiff

Not french either and i completely agree. Really bad game. Wales wasnt that good, France just sucked. And Rolland too. I thought the french newspaper would be full of comments about Rolland. Nothing. The BBC on the other hand said something about the ref's weird calls regarding scrums and Picamoles.
I dont recall any straight launch by Wales in line-out. Still the only time Rolland blowed his whistle was when the ball went toward the french. Not a fan of conspiracy theories, but with all the fuss about welsh rugby being so desperate to get an audience on TV...(did you see thoses articles saying soccer would overcome rugby in Wales?) Well this result comes right on time.

The Springboks end satisfying year with victory over France in Paris

Thx! that makes the law pretty clear indeed. Still unclear for me what downward pressure exactly requires. Huget's hand is going down. But its not over the ball. Should the ground be water, I believe Huget would have make the ball go down, even if by an inch or 2 only.
Still, the boks were stronger, no point denying that.

The Springboks end satisfying year with victory over France in Paris

Watched the game on TV. They replayed Domingo's tackle several times. Conclusion: I just don't know what happened! But it's pretty clear that Domingo was the first one surprised with the result of his tackle. And Habana didn't seem to take offense. On the contrary, Domingo helps Habana get on his feet and then they shake hand. This was a nice image!

First denied try was a weird decision. The second is OK. Huget's hand, the ball and the ground are in contact before the SA player touches it. I was not always a big fan of Huget but whithout him the difference would be 14 points higher.

Sona Taumalolo and Yoann Maestri red carded for France vs Tonga fight

Always a shame to see punches thrown. Agreed that the first one is worst. Still, discipline sometimes requires unfairness...
Anyway, I d rather see the tries than this (even tough it's usefull to focus on these incidents). Thx RD

Paul O'Connell knocks out Dave Kearney with clumsy kick to the head

Don't know the man. But looking at it several times, it's hard to believe this is just clumsiness.
Ugly.

Wales' Championship hopes still alive after gritty win over Scotland

Agreed. Joubert was ludicrious. After a scrum collapsed, he seem to be wondering "hhmm who's fault could it be?", waiting with his whistle in his hand, not knowing what to do. Legal fool. Then a scottish player say something and Voila! penalty vs Wales. No hard feeling Vs Scotland, sometimes it was just the opposite. I dont think Joubert was biased. And maybe that was the problem: he couldnt tell the good guyz from the bad guyz, having no prejudice. so he was lost and erratic. unbelievable.
I was impressed by Scotland's ability to resist. The welsh domination was overwhelming but still, mainly thanks to their boot, Scotland did a great job. If France doesnt make too many mistakes they should crush Scotland. But that'as a big "IF".

France and Ireland draw for second consecutive year

Haven't seen the game, but well the Scot/wal one. Happy to hear that this was better. Indeed, Joubert was a complete shame again.
