Will Skelton carded for slap after theatrical James Davies fall

I love the photo at the top of that article. Christ that bloke looks stupid!!

What did he say back then? I'm guessing, with the reference to a gesture as well, something along wanchor lines...

It's an utter disgrace that they didn't mention Davies's behaviour. If an English commentator showed anything like this type of bias, we'd never hear the end of it from our Celtic friends.

Saracens secure draw with hard fought Chris Ashton try in extra time

Why not indeed? At the moment, I reckon Farrell is England's best 12 and England's best 10 at the same time..

Saracens secure draw with hard fought Chris Ashton try in extra time

I couldn't help imagining Stuart Barnes's voice as I read this:

"Ashton: "unlucky guys, you played really well, Lions tour coming up so chins up, you'll be ok"
George: "Ashton mate, it ain't over til it's over, stop kissing the taffies and get back!"
"

Oh dear, what's happening around the 3:03 mark? Is Jamie George having to remind Ashton not to act like a bell-end? Presumably barracking the Scarlets players? For Christ's sake man, just let your rugby do the talking.

Impressed by Farrell here - both for the team motivation and a superb attacking line, awareness and quality pass.

I did wonder why Ashton chose to run back towards the tacklers, but who cares I suppose, he scored the try...

Francois Steyn red carded for attempting to take Johnny Sexton's head off

He does seem to get some abuse doesn't he!

I remember some opposition flankers - Serge Betsen stands out - clearly being tasked with trying to dismantle Jonny Wilkinson during England's "golden era". He seemed to be able to withstand it and I think he was also well protected by Messrs Dallaglio, Hill, Johnson et al.

Francois Steyn red carded for attempting to take Johnny Sexton's head off

One of my team-mates made a very similar observation after the match. I'm not actually averse to this directive myself; after all it's really just enforcing an existing law - if they did the same with things like straight scrum feeds I wouldn't complain about that either!
Honestly, I was pretty pleased I was able to reach high enough to high-tackle this bloke....

Have you seen the "Andy Goode for the 2017 Lions" group on Facebook? Bloody brilliant. Not sure who manages it, sometimes get the impression Andy Goode runs it! Has links to the podcast he does with Jim Hamilton, which is hilarious.
