    Sumo is a BAWZ, and I fully agree with his comments. His honesty and humor (particularly the self-deprecating kind) is always a great read!

    Re: RWC Aus vs Sco

    A good way to break it apart, and I agree that the quick exit does make it worse.


    Here's where I disagree. This was a decision that was HARD to make. There are 400-f**king posts going back n...

    Re: Andre Watson - Fired???

    I've very rarely held back, so I'm not sure that's related to the end of any sort of career!

    Re: 2015/16 dates announced

    They have clearly put the South American Dream to rest. The days of dreaming about rugby in Buenos Aires are long gone, b/c in addition to a stadium and fans, you also need an ECONOMY.

    This is sad, but doesnt surprise me.

    This is one of the BEST explanations from a referee to a captain I've seen, as well as the process followed.

    As for the incident, my first thought was "well, what else is he supposed to do to avoid the player?". I'm with those that see this more as poor timing...
