Re: England v Ireland, Sat Nov 21st, KO @ 1500

That should be a penalty against Itoje. You cannot shout like that on the opposition line out. A real lack of class every time he steps on the pitch. Such a plum It's the same law as for shouting during a kick, I've seen it penalised at club level but Itoje just screaming there really should be pin...

Agreed. Scrums with both props pushing don't go around that quickly.

Unlike Nige to get conned like that.
