Players pull at each other's shirts all the time, it kind of is relevant.

Is that the same TMO as Twickenham? 6 was certainly held back.

You see it often, supporting runner on a line that prevents any would be tackler from getting to the ball carrier. Not that it made any real difference here.

Mermoz lucky not to turn it over again there.

{EDIT} TF at least Fickou runs around players rather than at them

T-D needs to go. Permanently. Get Maestri off and Vahaa on.

Really poor defence there, players not shifting to match numbers for a good while there.

Hogg would still have made it, you feel. As mentioned the cover was too slow getting there in the first place.

Pretty sure France knocked on during the build-up there.

Good try, though f**king frustrating to lose.

I think it was Lauret who almost made the tap tackle at the end. Sometime cms make a difference.

Mainly joking but near a ruck there was a Scotsman lying in his back and a French players hand went on his face. About 1 min before I posted

Ruck a couple of phases before the try. A French player sticks his hand in the face of a prone Scot. Also there was a subtle joke in my post, but pearls before swine etc...

Totally agree. Many have given me a good reason to have a snooze - including the two yesterday but this game - anyone's guess

Supporting runner can go where he likes as long as he doesn't grab a shirt or anything.

He'd start ahead of Mike Brown?

You gain a better player and still have a massive bell end at 15. Win win really.

Players are very streetwise in this, the ref is rarely going to blow up for it unless you make contact. Visser definitely had a little look and was aware at where the defender would have to run to make the tackle so there was a little bit of gamesmanship.
