80m try helps Vannes secure ProD2 promotion

Well I thought I'd been masquerading as an insanely skillful winger for too long.

The new pic is the real me, buggering about in as many rucks as possible regardless of the number on my back.

80m try helps Vannes secure ProD2 promotion

I hate to be "that guy", but the tackling attempts by Massy were shocking. Good run though.

Leonardo Senatore banned for 10 weeks after biting Keegan Daniel

Dan, "12 punch combo" may be a bit of an exaggeration, (although the girly slaps started raining a bit before the start of your video if I recall correctly), but I clearly remember this as the moment I went from admiring Brussow to despising him with an almost psycopathic sense of loathing. No individual has ever plummeted so quickly in my estimations.

I empathise with the frustration of having someone holding onto you when you're trying to get away from a ruck, but it would have been much easier to break free of Williams's grasp than to keep slapping him like a girl at playgroup. (Incidentally, I have to date never experienced anyone continuing to hold my shirt after I've dug my thumb into the fleshy bit between the fingers on the back of the offender's hand).

And that dive.

That dive....

You'll have to excuse me, I'm really struggling to compose myself here.

That dive is the most disgraceful act I've witnessed on a rugby pitch. Brussow should have been banned for a very long time for that.

Ben Botica inexplicably kicks the ball away as Harlequins attempt late comeback in final

Exactly.

Before watching the video here, based on what I'd heard I was expecting to see the score at 19-all when he kicked it out.

These so-called fans and pundits are making a massive reach in assuming that Quins would definitely have scored a converted try from there.

If there's one thing that has no place in such a team-oriented game as rugby, it's scapegoating of individuals.

Six Outstanding Tries on Shortlist for Premiership Try of the Season

Probably the Thacker try eh?

Hooker from the halfway line. Number defenders beaten, both in the heavy traffic and then in space.
And I love the dummy to Goneva - I think everyone including Goneva were shocked when he didn't pass! And that acceleration for the line! After a 50m run that was impressive!

Do we need to deduct points from him for a horrendous haircut? Mostly obscured by the scrum cap to be fair. And he gets bonus points for the massive mis-pass in the Betham try.

Lima Sopoaga creates Waisake Naholo try with one of the flattest crosskick's you will ever see

Love that.
Fair point Eddie. Makes you wonder how many caps Sopoaga have if he represented a different country. Bloody brilliant player if you ask me.

Luke McAlister creates two Gael Fickou tries with superb little chips

So *that*'s what Michalak was trying to the other day!? (http://www.rugbydump.com/2016/05/5062/maa-nonu-and-quade-cooper-combine-for-awesome-toulon-try-vs-castres).
Bit more effective in the oppo 22 than on your own tryline it seems...

Referee checks TMO twice for Chris Henry's controversial try

- Sir, I think there's another camera angle that proves that the try shouldn't be awarded!
- Oh, are you the captain now? I didn't see your original skipper leave the field, he should have made that clear to me.
- Well, I'm not the captain Sir, it's just that if you look aga...
- *Turns back and walks away nonchalantly*
