Not Dupont though, he does that in his breakfast :D

If a guy losed it forward and fly hacks it in an unconvincing grubber, that gets called. Just there the same happens, but he ankle taps it backward. Don't see the difference.

Apart from the French officials, I mean.
imo if you manage to get the ball to touch your foot and go forward before it touches the ground, play on.
It’s a knock on. You can’t turn a knock on into a kick when you lose control, a kick has to be an intentional act.
What if, knowing you're knocking on, you fling your boot out to kick?
Does that not qualify as intentional?
Laws kicked intent to touch a while back, especially when it comes to the latest red card infringement of the month.

Bet you Microsoft are involved, a million creative ways to complicate simple tasks.

All we need now is for him to start penalizing Mako at every scrum, and the rebirth of Walsh will be complete.

Funny though that Guscott made the exact same point as I was making on the 5 on 3. But what does Guscott know?!

He actually just said the ball was lifted. So it's not that he missed it. He doesn't actually know the laws.

You can regather a knock on so you’re in control of the ball for an intentional kick. So:
bobble, gather ——> kick

Not bobble——>no control——> lash at ball

How would that be a criticism? It’s just an observation. I’d imagine the finger thing is almost a tic now or perhaps a superstition.

Eh, no.

Only North and Faletau are capable of getting any positive metres. Very sluggish from both sides.

England always shît the bed against Wales for some reason.

That’s good covering and a top tackle from North.

Pointless fro Ford. May as well pick two flankers in the centres to just win more ball to kick away.
