Do you reckon ye'll manage Italy in Rome? :)

Absolutely! Great to see how much respect he's earned from opposition fans, have to love Rugby for that too!
If we beat France I think we deserve it despite losing to England in that very even contest.
England have a young squad who have all the potential of producing another "golden generation"...they'll get their chance again.

Well the thing is you're allowed to run whatever line you want as long as you don't shield the person holding the ball.
Defenders can't commit before they see the ball going to hand. You're saying it's fair game but the laws of the game state otherwise, you can't tackle a guy without the ball.
We already have defences playing on the fine lines between on and offside when rushing up, if it becomes acceptable to take out possible recipients of the ball then we can say goodbye to running rugby and sit back and watch the up and under game....I hope they keep pinging it and defenders can spend more time getting their timing right.

How does that work for possible recipients of a skip pass?

Good point badge, hadn't thought of the fact that he may have been referring to the writer

You're forgetting it's slow mo, look at it in real time and you'll see it's a fairly natural looking fall....well in my opinion anyway

No Joe, I wasn't comparing the impact, I was showing an example of "milking" a reaction

I disagree completely on the milking aspect. There's no point complaining about bias and then losing all objectivity yourself. Kudos to the man, he got straight back up, shook it off and played on without any complaints.
Want to see milking? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJKZqB6jwRo the smile on Cowens face says it all.
