Two players red carded in Georgia vs Canada mass brawl

Rubbish, just because someone grabs you doesn't mean you have to start throwing punches. If the Georgian player hadn't done that I believe it may have only been a yellow card. How often in international rugby do we see players running up to their opposite number and nothing actually happening?

Technically the Georgian did 'start' the fight as he threw the first punch.

Bismarck Du Plessis controversially yellow carded for huge hit on Dan Carter

Of course Bismark saw an opportunity you idiot! He had the best 10 in the world lined up and he smashed him legally! Carter has the decency to admit it was a good tackle and the IRB admit the ref got it wrong so take your head out of your own arse and go back to training! If you play that is? I don't know a single player at my club (we put out 4 sides every Sat) who wouldn't have loved to be in this situation!

You talk about intent in one of your earlier posts which means you must be able to read minds! What am I thinking then???? Yes that's right you are a .....

Actually there was nothing wrong with the first tackle and if you need proof check these links out!

Nothing wrong with the tackle. Fell awkwardly and popped my AC joint #gutted #smashedembro

The British and Irish Lions win the series 2-1 after third Test rout

How was Roberts 'inform'? Warburton had lost his starting 7 shirt and Phillips was gash 1st test and then 'injured' for the 2nd.

IMO inform means having had game time and proved you are ready. Roberts should have been on the bench for the final test and come on to replace Davis IMO. So should 'jog on' Phillips! No doubt about the quality of any of these players but they were not 'inform' at the time of selection IMO!

IMO used a lot as it is my opinion and does not reflect that of my nation or any of it's members!

The British and Irish Lions win the series 2-1 after third Test rout

Anyone else looking forward to the 6 Nations where Corbs and Jones, Young's and Hibbard will being going toe to toe? (If fit?) Wonder if the outcome of last years game would have been different and therefore impacted on lions selection if certain players had been fit? Well done Lions and well done Gatland for making the big call (although Davis didn't do anything bod wouldn't have done and the big difference was Roberts!!)

Brian O'Driscoll dropped for series decider against the Wallabies

He hasn't really outplayed him! In fact I would go as far at to say we lost the last test because of JD! As a centre myself I would always trust the inside man to make their tackle (especially if it's BOD) and it is clear that BOD is telling Davis to get AAC! He doesn't and the rest is history!

The Lions were in prime line out position towards the end and Hibbard threw it away! Another poor choice!

Roberts hasn't played a competitive game for how long?

The whole selection I think it is very very poor. So we have 10 Welshmen in the Squad who have never defeated Australia! I have to say that I think WG has ruined a perfectly amazing tour by trying to fill a SH victory gap in his role as Wale national coach and to prove that his way can win down there!

I really hope they win on Sat and if they don't WG has apologies to make to all the home nations!

The British and Irish Lions win the first Test as Kurtley Beale misses late penalties

What was the finger pointing from North for? I know he'd scored a pretty impressive try but I imagine if his name was Armitage he'd be getting all sorts of abuse on here and other social media sites. Not cool!

Shane Williams and Christian Wade called up and on the wings vs the Brumbies

Good point, well made :)

It's a real shame that Tips might not see a test shirt as he's outperformed Warbs all season in the Rabo.

It was always going to be a problem when Gatland insisted on picking his captain from the most competitive position on the field. IMO every back row player in the Lions squad is worthy of a starting shirt!

He might have been better selecting someone like Sexton, O'Connell or O'Driscoll or even Half Penny who I think are perhaps the only player to be a sure thing!

British and Irish Lions too strong for determined Waratahs in Sydney

Real shame about Roberts, I know I've posted before about him and I still think Manu is a better option at 12 but this is a real blow. Seems like a nice bloke! The Wales 12, 13, 15 try was awesome!

Croft once again showed (in this clip, I didn't see the whole game so would be interested to hear others non-bias opinions) why he should start at 6 over Lydiate and SOB.

What about playing Hogg at Full back and half penny on the wing? Or the other way round? Half Penny is the only player (along with maybe Sexton) that I FEEL has his place nailed down and should be a sure starter in the first test!
