Jamie Heaslip accepts cited Pascal Pape's apology but is out injured

If he plays again in this six nations, the ban will not have been long enough. Even if (with a big if) it's not deliberate (let's give him this HUGE benefit of the doubt) it is reckless, no professional and international player enters into prepared contact that way, even without 50 caps under his belt.

Another look at the Greatest Game Ever Played - Wallabies vs All Blacks 2000

1-Yes you're right, wales v scotland was a great game

2-that being better than this match is a subjective opinion of yours, which I understand and respect

3-I'm sorry, but there is no way in hell this match sucked. It was a great display of rugby, a hard fought contest between the two greatest teams in the world at that time.

Cheers :)

Nice skills. I agree, he played well on Saturday. Hope he gets back in the Aussie colors :)

RD, speaking of funny little things during the game, can you dig up Neil Jenkins' accidental falcon in the Lions game vs Combined Country, after Hogg hits the post on a conversion kick, in the 13th minute? Makes for fun watching ;)

Schalk Brits suspended for three weeks for striking Owen Farrell

Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I still have serious doubts on that incident. No video evidence, ref was having a shocker of a game, and 6N interests.
Parisse also didn't play the remorse card in front of the citing commission (which usually plays pretty well in trying to reduce a ban), but he appealed the decision twice and always vehemently denied insulting the official.

Right Stubby, really mature. That's what we need, another Callum Clark but at higher and more prestigious level. Way to promote rugby's image around the world.

I'm sure Sergio Parisse, one of the best players in the world at the number 8 position and since 2008 captain to Italy's team, knows how to deal and speak with refs. And I doubt a light graze on the shoulder can be called a "soccer element".

Hartley on the other hand....but hey, that's OT

Moving on? What's next?...
