#ThrowbackThursday: Remember when Courtney Lawes decapitated Plisson?

"I'll tell you what: you certainly wouldn't want to be on the end of it".
Perfectly summed up by Mr Moore.

2017 Six Nations: The Journalists' Preview

I'm not sure which way you're arguing this DrG?

Do you mean he should be giving Wales more respect? OK, maybe, but they just squeaked past Argentina and Japan in the autumn, and were summarily dispatched by NZ and Australia, OK they beat South Africa but so did Italy...

If you're saying they were not strong, well second place last year would suggest otherwise.

But while we're in the trolling zone, here's my prediction for the final standings:
1. England (Not a GS though)
2. France
3. Ireland
4. Scotland
5. Italy
6. Wales

2017 Six Nations: The Journalists' Preview

Interesting to put a face to the name of Nick Mullins - one of the few TV commentators who don't make me want to throw the remote control at the TV.

Bloody hell though, Cleary's aged a lot since I last saw him on camera.....

Nice one Dan. Reckon you've got the January comment-of-the-month award sewn up with that.

Mathieu Bastareaud smashes Alex Lozowski with MONSTER hit

"Yes!! Got past Nonu! Nice one! Woooh.... oh shiiiiiiiii.............!

Lovely tackle by Bastareaud, a sight to behold. Like O'Driscoll*, I'm even more impressed by how Lozowski dealt with that, kept the ball and presented it beautifully, then jumped up as if it was just a run-of-the-mill hit.

* I reckon this could be the only time I ever get to use the phrase "like O'Driscoll, I..."

Nemani Nadolo goes full beast mode to demolish Northampton Saints

Hoot, no minefield at all. I think my point was very clear: it is inaccurate to conflate all atheists into one homogeneous group.

Nemani Nadolo goes full beast mode to demolish Northampton Saints

Just realised I don't think I've used - or even heard - the word "claptrap" in ages. Might start reintroducing it, maybe in work discussions.

One small point of order for you Hoot: you can't say "atheists think X", or "they held X theory". There is no "they"; belonging to an organised group is one of the key things that "they" reject.

Anyway, back to the Rugby...
