Mine is probably Cipriani's over the head slap for Sackey's try- a moment of genius, although I have seen it before. Loved Castro's celebration

Yes, but he didn't play every minute of those games, did he? and he was playing in two different positions in the games he did play in. He was not stand out at wing, but was at full back. see?

6 Nations XV

Just wondering what everybody's 6N team would be. The Welsh were very good, but I have no outstanding Irishmen (although I'm sure Geordan would have been had he not been discarded and then injured) but I think there were quite a few stand-out players in each position, so would be interesting to see ...

To be fair, all good fly-halves should tell the pack what to do, so that doesn't merit him being a future captain. Would like to see Crane bought in, or possibly use Haskell as a captain who could be around for the next 10 years. Cipriani was outstanding though, and can only blossom under the influe...

I'm confused. A new "Golden Era" of Welsh Rugby? I've only been alive to see two real so-called "Golden Eras", and that was England and the All-Blacks. In both cases, the teams absolutely dominated anyone they played. The All-Blacks probably still will. The Welsh on the other hand... When both the E...

I thought the french would have won if a) They had a stronger front row, and b) they had someone who could have kicked their goals. A mistake in selection, rather than tactics.

You're dreaming if you think the insectes will win all but 1 of their last games. They are good at the business end of the season, but have one of the hardest run-ins imaginable. Tigers will make it, no problems.

ELV's could be good- the blue's scored a try which ould have been only 3 points had the old penalty laws been in place.

Geordan in the lions team?! Yep, he was the most exciting back three player in Britain 5 years ago and he's improved his defensive game hugely but I think we should take the tiger striped glasses off a bit shouldn't we? What tiger striped glasses? There is not a single full-back in the British Isle...

You're all forgetting the "lesser" known wingers! What about Caucau? He's not too bad. Better than Williams, that's for sure- and if it's dependant on tries then... 1. Daisuke Ohata 68 tries in 59 tests 2. Joe Rokocoko 43 tries in 48 tests 3. Shane Williams 37 tries in 54 tests 4. Bryan Habana 30 tr...

I think everyone is taking this way out of context- my coaches at rugby have always said "if you want to take someone big down, you aim between the belly and sternum". Jonny did exactly this, and the fact that his arm swang round is not a point to get him cited- it's actually making the tackle legal...
