Ryan Wilson may be in big trouble after citing commissioner intervention

Agreed also - the first act of aggression outside of the laws is the throat grip!
Hopefully it'll not lead to a banning.
(It was also a gentle side of the face run really, wasn't it?)

Referee has Georgian handbags under control, or so he thinks

funny how they started to hung and shake hands at the end!

A yellow card for each captain? ie "keep your lads under better control"

Johnny Sexton's last minute heroics hailed as 'inspirational' by Joe Schmidt

Imagine if Ireland had the imagination to start Zebo, Earls and Larmour as the back three?

Absolute fire! They needed a bit of a spark

Neither team spend much time in the other's 22. If you weren't Irish or French, or an absolute tactics nerds, I can see this would have been a fairly boring encounter.....

are there any clips available that start with the actual restart - the 22 dropout- that henshaw took in the air?
Unfortunately, we just see it when he catches - so the complete move stats with the imagination.....

this first kick too, from the Irish 22, was cheeky, excellent and v v accurate by sexton.

don't forget the original...esp the cookie monster and do wait for Kermit.....

Now THAT's commentary (TV commentators can sound so boring for big moments, this guy in the clip is an Irish radio commentator)

15 Players Nominated for European Player of the Year 2018

Jaesus whoever picked those highlights didn't spent too long on it!

I'd say

6 Dany Priso (La Rochelle)
5 Alivereti Raka (ASM Clermont Auvergne)
4 Owen Farrell (Saracens)
3 Isa Nacewa (Leinster Rugby)
2 Tadhg Furlong (Leinster Rugby)
1 Conor Murray (Munster Rugby)

(I know its only 5! Still, their are my top 6 (from that list). Also thinking of SF in European Cups to come (Farrell might ome good, whereas Nakarawa - brilliant - won't feature)

Sinoti Sinoti step from another planet helps Newcastle to victory

Brilliant step. Good recovery pace too, tbf. Them Lienister tries have been sth else too - esp the recent Ulster one .Foly Huck that was bananas.

(pity about Lamour's defense in the 10 mins before the try on the 28th, J Smith sees these things too....)

Cian Healy leads with shoulder but somehow escapes red card

Nacewa seems to be better than the other Leinster backs in their own positions - wing, full back, out feckin half - he seems to be _better_ than the starters in these positions.
And he's a better kicker than Sexton.
35 y.o. Retired and came back.
An absolute animal.
(OK I'm not certain he would be a better out half than sexton - there isn't a lot to go on -but what there is to go on is quite convincing!)

Alivereti Raka almost single-handedly destroys Saracens
