Jacques Burger lines up and nails Luke McAlister with textbook tackle

Also, hats off to Luke McAllister for wearing that and popping straight back up onto his feet.

Surely your head's only on the wrong side if you're tackling from the side? In this case he's running directly at McAllister's chest so he can just pick whichever side he prefers!

Commentator is wrong, (second guy to speak I mean, Mark Robson fantastic as always), complaining about a slow pass from the scrum half; it wasn't really, that is just awesome line speed from Burger.

It's like the old days on here!! :)
But with improved frequency - two massive tackles in as many days and a brutal hand-off the day before. It's like Christmas for Rugbydump fans.

Maurie Fa'asavalu makes a punishing big hit on Ian Humphreys

It was an absolute beauty wasn't it! Best part was your point 3 - it was like a rugby/ten-pin-bowling hybrid.

Clermont flanker Viktor Kolelishvili shoves referee Wayne Barnes

What do you mean?
Tameifuna is a Kiwi and plays in New Zealand.
Kolelishvili is a Georgian representing a French team in this case against a team from the UK.

Seems pretty consistent to me.

Danny Cipriani sets up Nev Edwards with another great bit of attacking play

Re Hartley as captain, I believe this is just a way to maintain a full team of 15 players on the pitch. Much like a scrum half I play with; if he's captain, he has some licence to chunter away at the ref all game, moaning and questioning everything with a much lower likelihood of being yellow-carded for it.

Ha! Maybe you're into something. Hopefully his exclusion is just a mid-term management technique by Eddie "moves in mysterious ways" Jones.

I come at it from a different angle but draw same conclusion. I've always rated Cipriani, I believe he's a more honest, hard-working professional than he's given credit for. And he's by far England's most exciting player, especially at flyhalf.
