We did exactly the same with head pats in Ireland game. It's endemic now you can't thump you wind up as a release ! I don't condone double standards.

Barclay had pulled Itoje's scrum cap off and thrown it away about 10 mins earlier...which I quite enjoyed.
John was getting very frustrated and at one stage the advantage became a penalty due to John. Can't blame him though. He was pretty fed up to say the least. 


Didn't think that the referee allowed the Scottish back row to jackal at all. He seemed to allow England an age to place the ball back.

Itoje is really the second row as he packed down in the row at scrum time. Lawes in the back row.

Great player, hope ithe slide towards being a t*t is reversible.

For Danny Care it's way too late.

Think it's just an overall 9 thing on the pitch, but off it I can't stand Dawson or Healy!

I was at a charity rugby dinner last night, lots of great guys there and many old English rugger buggers (we had ('93 Lion Ben Clarke on our table) - hosted by Ian Robertson and starring Jeremy Guscott.

We talked about the 6 Nations, the relative IQs of forwards and backs, the experience of a Lions tour, the 2003 World Cup Sleepy, how to deal with a room-mate on tour and who should be in the Lions squad for the forthcoming tour to New Zealand. (Guscott picked AWJ as his captain and insisted on Ken Owens as hooker. Thumbs Up)

During the evening, the whole room was only agreed on two things - that scrum-halves are mouthy little toe-rags, and that everyone hates Austin Healey.

I say 'hates', I mean 'utterly despises'.

I say 'utterly despises', I mean 'can't stand to breathe the same air as'.

Do that whilst wearing a white shirt and out comes the tired old stereotypical rhetoric of arrogance. Foxy did exactly the same to the Irish boys when their try was disallowed.

Haha! Somehow, this comes as no surprise!

Very interesting info there Nobby. Many thanks.
Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

Austin hosted a big do in London I went to a few years back and yes, smug little... with a few Welsh digs as well. He loves winding us up! I should have heckled what about " The Plank" he called that Aussie second row and that so called Plank"s  vital line out steal!
