    The magnanimity of the TV team is exemplary.

    Did anyone see the One Show last night? They wanted everyone to send in their videos of their full time celebrations.

    Iím not sure if they broadcast in South Africa though.

    Farrell moaning about the ref post match, moaned through the game to the ref and in general with all of Eddie's tedious 'mind games' which amounts to him just being an Erse to his opposite number, they just come over as dislikeable.

    Jeez the authorities have not half hit Saracens hard for an alleged breach of the salary cap regulations. They've hit them with a 35 point deduction and a £5.36 million fine. No messing there.!

    Surely if they have fined them they have evidence so itís not alleged but fact?

    Saracens think otherwise, they're appealing against the judgement

    They give their players a hand in setting up a business/career for after rugby and are adamant that this isnít included in the salary cap. I think they also have houses that they give the players at a massively reduced rental and donít include that as a benefit for the salary cap.

    Makes sense how they can ďaffordĒ to fit half the England team plus the best of Wales, Scotland and overseas players into the salary cap though.

    Eddie Jones: Scotland must aim to be world's best 'small' team

    I understand what he's saying, but I do find him irritating.

    What has any of that got to do with Jones? Obviously still bitter they got horsed in the final.

    I would have binned him after the world cup. I would love to be proved wrong but I just don't think he has what it takes to be an international head coach. We should have kept Cotter

    I've got a couple of tickets for the Heineken Cup Warriors v Exeter clash in January. The tickets are hard to come by, even at the price of £32 each. Really looking forward to it all the same.

    Got someone's season ticket for the Glasgow v La Rochelle game on Saturday. First time this season and may stay up for drinks so should be good, despite their recent performances.

    Poor display by the Warriors on Saturday unfortunately. The game was played in horrendous conditions but it boiled down to key players making basic errors at crucial moments. I can't see them proceeding now but there's still a glimmer of hope.

    what an astonishing comeback in the rugby league, Huddersfield beating leeds rhinos 26-6 with just over 10 mins remaining, leeds equalised with just seconds left of the 80, then winning it in the golden point, brilliant win

    Go Leeds

    Just watched the highlights of this and that was indeed some comeback. I like the 6 again rule. Keeps the game flowing.

    What are folks thoughts on the replacement of the Autumn Internationals with this new 'competition'?

    Personally, I wish they'd left well enough alone and just scrapped them/rescheduled them til next year. We'll wrap up the Six Nations in October, then go into a small group competition with France, Italy and Japan - before cross-pool games (England, Wales, Ireland and Fiji) take place - we then play the Six Nations again in February against the same teams.

    Given next year is a Lions tour, I'm surprised they're pressing ahead with 2 competitions in such quick succession.

    I think most of the national unions needs the money (not that that is necessarily a great reason). Even if its limited/no fans in stadiums, they'll fulfil tv contracts so not need to pay anything back/lose tv income, and the extra comp before the 6 nations will help recoup some money that would usually come from summer tours etc.

    All imo of course
