Tevita Kuridrani scores sensational try to seal Aussie win in France

Bloody loved this. Definitely try of the weekend for me on grounds of athleticism and sheer audacity.

Mr Dump, if I may put in a request - it would be good to see that Lord de J├Ąger piece of amateur dramatics at the lineout in more detail. At the time it looked very much like he'd "done a Rivaldo", rolling about on the ground clutching his head - if that is the case I'd like to get on with the important business of calling for his immediate and permanent exclusion from the game. But I find it hard to believe that I saw it right - SA rugby may be going through a challenging time but surely a South African second row would never stoop to wendyball-style simulation!? Would he?!?

Tevita Kuridrani scores sensational try to seal Aussie win in France

That must be one of the most gratuitously over-complicated, rambling laws ever written, isn't it? But is the one crucial word here "not"?

"The ball is *not* out of play"

So the try is OK?

Perfectly executed back heel kick 100m try goes viral

I've never seen this bloke on here before, I'm even wondering if he's the other team's flyhalf, judging by his bitterness about it! (Apologies to the real black 10).

Judging from his contributions so far, no doubt he'll be along shortly to point out that your username appears to missing an O.

Wales edge Argentina for confidence building win

100% agree. And I'm delighted that this act of twattery is so far the most discussed moment of the game. Because that shows that this behaviour still stands out as heinous and unacceptable. Refs and/or authorities have got to clamp down on this prick very soon though or others will copy and we'll be on the slippery slope to wendyball.

England break their Springboks hoodoo with convincing win at Twickenham

Quite right Jimmy. If there are fewer than 8 points separating the scores, by all means get the ball off the park. Otherwise, play on!

As Eddie said himself, if you worry too much about what the media say, very soon you'll find yourself up in the stands with them (instead of coaching the team).

Kuridrani scores late try as Australia break Scotland hearts again

Abject failure on Friday night (football) to glorious failure on Saturday. A tremendous uptick in fortunes for Scotland and about as good as it gets I reckon.

Scotsman's haunting Craig Joubert movie ahead of Wallabies rematch

Stu, we've watched the same footage. I say tomato you say tomayto. In this case Monsieur Poite said tomayto also. I still maintain I'm right. :)

Scotsman's haunting Craig Joubert movie ahead of Wallabies rematch

Well a bit simple perhaps, but I've been sharing my I'll-informed opinions on thee esteemed pages for long enough now that I don't think one more can hurt.

I do get a bit sensitive when I see rugby refs being attacked, and satire/parody only offers minimal mitigation. It's a slippery slope mate - one minute you're having a laugh, the next you've got half a dozen players barracking the ref and waving imaginary cards.

Just to clarify, I didn't complain about the other refereeing decision, I just pointed out that mistakes happen.
