Toulon chairman Mourad Boudjellal on building the champion club

Arguably, Toulouse, Clermont, and Castres are the only H-Cup calibre teams in the Top 14 who can post an all (nearly all) French squad and be competitive.

I would also argue that many of the foreign players on teams like Clermont, Castres, and Montpellier come from countries with little or no significant professional league.

When these teams sign players from GEO, ARG, FIJ, are they really poaching or hiring mercenaries? If so, it is in the same vein of other teams chock full of players from SANZAR and the Home Nations?

Madagascar wardance vs Namibia

Amazing backdrop. seating up against a hillside with a fort-like building on a hill.

Could be southern France for all we know.

As for all the haters, sure it's not the Haka.

But when you consider that #36 in the world is getting that kind of crowd and that electric of an atmosphere, our game isn't in such a bad place.

Midweek Madness - David 'Superman' Marty flying over the ruck

This clip is almost as ridiculous as that minor league hockey goalie, Neal Little, who went flying over the top of an all-in line fight (i.e. the "bagarre generale" of hockey).

Midweek Madness - David 'Superman' Marty flying over the ruck

From my POV, Delon was shot by friendly fire (#13), his own teammate crossing his line.
But yeah, the only thing missing is Delon getting into the face of the referee.

Wing JP Pietersen's big tackle on Eighthman David Denton

if we as a rugby community allow this to build up, we'll turn into gridiron or rugby league... eventually standing over players and sledging while they're out cold from concussion.

in the old days, players like JPP would be self-policed -- a good stamping at the next ruck comes to mind

but with professionalism, the only way to stamp this out is with fines or sanctions.
