France leave Murrayfield victorious after Scotland scare

Am I mistaken into thinking that we are having a pretty decent -though surprising Tournament so far? the so-called "favorites", 1st Wales then 2nd faves France, are actually quite lucky to get their victories, while sides such as Scotland and England show great pace!
now, THAT is something really nice to see! The Scots seem to have a raging new generation with Denton, Gray and Hoggs...
Anyway, about the game, I thought the French really lacked of pace, but I guess that's what happens when you do not play for 3 weeks in a row.
They ought not to be called "favorites" after that game, which showed that they really need more time off the clubs to get back to form.
Also, I'd like to see Lionel Beauxis and Dupuy a bit earlier: Saint André seems to make them come at the very last minute...

bad news for Medard who's out of the Tournament, but EXCELLENT news for Italy (who show amazing courage and dedication) who'll get Castro back...from what we've seen on sunday, the scots should be quite worried as the Italians are some amazing scrummaging warriors...
anyway, keep on NH, you're doing good! (last but not least: amazed by the influence that prick Tuilagi had on his team. If only he was as smart as he's good...and thumbs up to the new England n°10: seems like Cipriani had no reason to come back from Oz and play for Sale next season after all....)

Super Rugby 2012 Profiles - The South African teams

last but not least, to explain what we call (in our horrible, barbaric, pitiful language) "mon coup de gueule", I'll say: it was one comment too many. every time something is said about the French, you'll see a few "xenophobic" comments that'll point out that "the French are this and that"... when it's not directly the thing you broadcast or the comment you, RD, make about what you show, which is a bit anti-French. Go on http://www.planetrugby.com/ if you want to see the French, Argentinians and Italians treated with a bit of fairness.

Super Rugby 2012 Profiles - The South African teams

and to those who, obviously, will wonder why I said all that just for one "nickname", I'll just say: as you're not concerned, you may not see it as obviously as we do. but if you've a sense of justice, you'll see that we're not welcome in the rugby world. which is funny, because I though that the English and all the peoples they've influenced have a great sense of fair play....

" Frederic "that-was-a-forward-pass" Michalak..."
tttt come on RD....REALLY? FIVE years ago, you're still on that "forward pass"???

OK, fair enough. Talking about Frenchies and ABs, we can therefore talk about the Mighty All "We-got-ass-kicked-by-the-French-and-almost-lost-the-WC-although-THE-REF-WAS-COMPLETELY-OURS-and-we-were-on-our-pitch-with-our-crowd" Blacks, Richie "hi-Morgan-Parra's-jaw-here's-my-knee" McCaw, Piri "Mike-Tyson" Weepu and so on...
get over it. seriously. You (I say you, because it seems more and more obvious, day after day, that you're not exactly interested in the non-English speaking countries, especially those French a-holes that you seem to despise so much) should go at Ernest Wallon, Mayol, Marcel Michelin just once and see the madness it is, the sheer happiness in the streets of Clermont when they won the Top 14 (yes, I know, Top 14 is rubbish, absolute bollocks) or else in Toulouse when they won their 4th H Cup.

You'd then see so many grandfathers, fathers and sons partying and screaming their love of Rugby. And I think perhaps then you'd realise that wether you like it or not, due to all that the French give to Rugby, they deserve a bit more justice. a bit less clichés about alleged eye-gougings (photos and what you can make of them) -although I don't deny us French can "lose it" on the pitch.... JUST LIKE ANYBODY ELSE. however we're always penalised the worse because inconciously, Rugby being "a sport for the discerning few", the non-English speaking are not welcome on the pitch, where they do not always understand what the ref is yelling while they're playing hard rugby (thus not exactly focusing on another language as much as they should)....

Please RD, if you have some respect, do not moderate this, although you don't like it. I am fed up with all those stupid attitudes towards the French. Always wondering how many time we'll have to lift the H Cup and the RBS trophee before we're allowed some respect...

Bradley Davies & Stephen Ferris controversial tackles discussed

probably one of the dumbest comments ever. "the tacklee can position himself to make it look..." WTF have u ever played rugby, like, at all mate? when you're running as fast as you can, ball in hand, and get tackled in a movement that last a split second, DO YOU REALLY THINK SOMEONE has even the time to think about the ref, or anything else?
if anything, players are so mentally into their game that they'll probably only think about either keeping or passing the ball.

if the tacklee can think about making the tackle look bad -at the expense of his own safety, WHY CANNOT THE TACKLER THINK ABOUT NOT MAKING A TIP TACKLE???

bad faith can sometimes take abyssmal proportions....

Sonny Bill Williams and Clarence Tillman III brawl at weigh-in

well guys for all of u who're not interested, just know some of us actually are! I'd also like to see his combat. If you like rugby, you're probably real guys who like combat, as rugby is a combat sport. so...I mean, RD is not turning into sth else: it's still about a rugby legend! more interesting thant those O2 inside line jokes anyway dont u think?

Wales seal victory with late kick in Six Nations thriller against Ireland

Wales are definitely favorites for the Tournament, if not for Grand Slam! Such a pity there are too many strangers in Top 14, otherwise all our young talents would have their shot...
see Doussain who cannot play coz of Burgess (who, besides his cost, isn't far better than Doussain) and Buttin in Clermont who only gets Lee Byrne's leftovers...although, yet again, it is absolutely not proven that Byrne's better. Then you have Germain
