Logovi'i Mulipola prop try included in Premiership Try of the Week nominations

poor technique by Nowell though. Small guy like him is never going to stop a big lump like that. He should have let Mulipola get along side or just past him before going in and he would have avoided the impact which knackered his shoulder.

The Best Tries scored in Round 6 of Super Rugby 2014

I’m with Vladimir. Too many forward passes really. Just takes the edge off some great moves.

Beauden Barrett wins IRPA Try of the Year 2013 for try against France

There are too many forward passes in the game nowadays, in my opinion. If a bloke passes the ball and it moves towards the try line, it's a forward pass. Doesn't matter how fast he's running. It might even be behind the player who threw the pass, but it's still forward, relative to the try line. And that should be all that counts. The IRB can always change the rule. They got it wrong so they can put it right.

Danny is a rude and offensive and his childish comments should not be allowed in a grown up forum such as this one. He doesn't make sense either.

great offload by Cruden though, shame the pass at the beginning of the move looked a metre forward, at least. why don't the powers that be use the technology used in football to determine offside? Just draw a line across the pitch from the point of release, and another one half way up the pitch where the bloke catches it, and bob's yer uncle. all this guff about direction of the hands is complete cobblers. what's important is that the ball should not go forward in the direction of the opponents try line. Simple. Way too many forward passes lead to tries nowadays. grrrr.

Fabrice Estebanez knockout hit on David Strettle

Agree with everybody so far. Dirty hit and should be sanctioned. I remember seeing him come in with a swinging straight arm later on in the game which wasn't picked up by the commentators.
