To pretend the English are better than the French in this regard is just silly

I’ve noticed in the last two or three years that main cameras tend to pan away from the biff but odd that no review was even attempted.

Just finished extended highlights of this game, young Genge won’t get away with driving at those angles for long. At one point he’s pushed so far in Underhill is almost in the LH position.

There is an annoying amount of so called clear-out around the rucks which are border line or plain illegal, with players taking away guys who do not intend to commit to the ruck. This needs to be cracked down, and I wonder if this picture is no related to this type of behaviour.

Both potential red card offences.

Peyper is just a shocking ref. The whole world knew it was a straight penalty against Genge for an illegal bind for the first collapse. Peyper bottles of and gives a free kick to Ireland. Genge then goes into the next two scrums at 45 degrees and Peyper pretends he doesn’t see it, then to top it all off gives the penalty to England.

How much of a fanny do you have to be to think those Ryan clear outs are reds?

Would you fudge off with your red card offences. There's nothing in either of them.

Not much sign of a ruck in that photo taken after Itoje was dumped to the floor by two Irish players off the ball...
I thought you were talking rubbish when this happened and it’s good to have that confirmed after the BBC showed the footage from a different angle in the Itoje interview just now. I suggest you give it another watch JM.

Have a look at the interview with Itoje in today’s warmup. They show the full incident from a much better angle. Itoje being an irritating twat as was thought (his initial competition for the ball is fine it’s the bit after that’s not)
