Logovi'i Mulipola prop try included in Premiership Try of the Week nominations

"Aye, that's a sight to behold - 20 stones on the hoof"

Jonny May try - if only international wings were as accommodating as that Newcastle player: "oh you're going to telegraph a cut-inside as soon as you receive the ball? Well here you go then, let me just open this door for you. You're welcome".

Mark Cueto try - surely at least one of those passes went forward? I see he's still doing a massive slam-dunk motion when finishing tries in very tight spaces then - cf RWC 2007. Can't argue with his record though I suppose! Looks like some very unnecessary chat to the defending player too.

Malakai Fekitoa smashes Conrad Smith with huge tackle

"The kind of pass you'd give someone who'd taken your last Rolo", as Mark Robson once said.

A piss poor pass definitely, however I'm not sure it's actually as bad as it looks - did you see the distance Mother Fucker Toa covered to make that tackle? Beautifully timed run it has to be said.

The Top 5 Brian O'Driscoll Moments of All Time

Now THAT is how you do a tribute video!

Take note, Adidas, with your moody black-and-white filming, "injury make-up" and feeding contrived lines to people who no doubt can say it better themselves.

Bloody love these lot, great banter and chemistry.

Obama bit quite cool, must be nice to get mentioned even if he clearly had no bloody idea who Brian O'Driscoll is!

RD: At the risk of Brian O'Driscoll fever overkill...
Don't think there's any chance of that! When a bloke is so awesome for so long and can still stay so grounded and humble, I think he deserves all the tributes he gets. And personally I don't think I'll ever get bored of watching O'Driscoll rugby highlights.

Brilliant, but I'd bet a lot of money on BOD being bloody brilliant at golf...

The Best Tries scored in Round 5 of Super Rugby 2014

"he is not trying to deliberately 'rip the ball' out of the player's possession"

I must have missed a law change somewhere along the line.
Since when are you not allowed to rip the ball from the player's possession?
Always thought dislodging the ball from the player's grasp is a good additional thing to try and achieve in a tackle.

What about this classic tackle by Caucau on O'Driscoll:

I always thought that was an awesome covering tackle.
By the rationale above, it would presumably be penalised?
I think that would be ridiculous.

Stephen Ferris returns to rugby with trademark powerful tackle

[Pedant mode]
You could care less or you couldn't??

Please pass on the memo to all your North American brethren - "I could care less" makes no sense and means the precise opposite of the point you're making.

Test stars say thank you to Brian O'Driscoll in adidas tribute video

If I were BOD I think I'd be a bit embarrassed by this. These sponsors need to just let these things develop organically, instead of feeding the players cheesy lines. Adidas of all companies should know better; they set the standard 10 years ago with that Wilko-Becks training ground thing.
