France get first tournament win with Paris victory over Scotland

I saw that during the match and wondered "what the ---??". It sure looks like a punch anyhow.

A look at the Top 5 clearance kicks gone wrong

#3 is my favourite here.

But my all-time favourite was in a match I played, in which our number 8 tried to kick from our 22m ... and the ball went backwards over his head.

England stay on track for Grand Slam with win over France

Wow, wrote this drunk at 1am. Long whine against Joubert. Can't stand this referee when France is playing, he just seems to be on a personal vendetta against Les Bleus. It's surely a post-traumatic thing, linked to the World Cup final.
I did say England were much stronger (and would have won anyhow once PSA's brilliant substitutions were made). I would have blamed Joubert regardless of who France were playing.

England stay on track for Grand Slam with win over France

I'll always whine about Joubert, like a few million other people here in France. It's personal. I generally try to avoid blaming the ref, but when it's Joubert I can't.

England stay on track for Grand Slam with win over France

I'm French (more or less), and I often support France (but I love a Rugby-playing NH side in general, be it English, Scottish ...etc).
So I am bound to be subjective when it comes to refereeing. But since I love rugby, and rugby is so awesome, and rugby makes my (ex-)girlfriend so happy, I should logically say "never blame the referee", while twiddling my monocle and looking for a credible way to look serious.

But I can't do that when some referees are on the pitch. Wayne Barnes for instance, always supports the attacking team. Joubert, for instance, always supports anyone but the French. It's not that the latter favours the English -he doesn't (11 vs 12 penalties in this match for England). It's that he screams "USE IT!" after half a second when France has the ball, or says "ROLL AWAY BLUE [ANY NUMBER]" at any opportunity in a ruck when France is defending, and forgets to do so at any other opportunity, particularly adverse. The man has some issues regarding his family name, must be that ...

It's also because Joubert blatantly referees alone ("what? can't hear you") said Joubert to his line judge when the latter reacted to Vunipola's offside position when the ball goes forward and bounces off Vunip. to see the Tuilagi try off).
He's the type of referee who'll go see Morgan Parra to tell him "25 seconds left (to take your goal kick)", while Parra had to go by himself and grab the ball out of the English try zone.
You'll never hear Joubert tell Farrell "ok lad, you've got 25 seconds to go" if Farrell had to go and get the winning ball himself.

England obviously stronger on the day, and with a much better bench.
France partly sabotaged by coach PSA. Joubert not helping much.
Time for me to go and play EL ROUUUUUUUUUBY SI SENOR

Sergio Parisse red carded and banned for insulting referee

I read somewhere that Parisse insulted the ref in English, thinking it wouldn't get noticed.

Biarritz beat Connacht in drenched conditions at the Parc des Sports Aguilera

I love the follow-up kick at 1:46, the player kicks it while running at full speed, and the ball goes forward .... 2 meters, slows down in all the water, stops.

Boris Johnson's amusing RWC 2015 draw speech

This was my first Boris Johnson speech ever, and I must say I'm quite delighted.
Sounds a bit like Douglas Adams.

England upset the All Blacks with famous win at Twickenham

Looks like the two best teams in the NH beat the two best teams in the SH this year (Eng-Nz, Fra-Aus). But I've got to say that perhaps the Blacks were still a bit sick from their gastroenteritis (at least now we know how to beat them: lamb curry on the house for everyone!). Nah, just teasing, England backs were very good today, and their forwards were all fired-up: a great combination.
