Some big opinions – but what do you think?

Hot

Heineken Cup… Diggin’s four tries against Edinburgh, Humphrey’s last minute penalty for Ulster and Lemi’s last second try v Toulouse. Leinster’s pressure, Toulon’s win over Munster and Saints unbeaten run. Bonus points, must win showdowns and travelling supporters.

Alphonsi… A most deserving winner of the Pat Marshall Award.

No More Friday Six Nation Matches… Common sense prevails at last!

Harlequins…21 of their 23 players against Wasps were home-grown English talent, with 10 of the starting 15 products of the clubs Academy. Fantastic!

Matt Steven’s Comeback… Nice to see him back playing

QLD Flood Help… Special mention to James O’Connor, Quade Cooper, the Faingaa brothers, ARU, Rebels, Reds, George Smith and Toulon.

Not:

Heineken Cup… Reset scrums, noise during goal kicks and football-like try celebrations. Complacency, missed opportunities and costly losses. Yellow and red cards, spear tackles and rude gestures.

Abu Dabui Venture…Neglects those who really matter…Season Ticket Holders.

IRFU…Splurge the cash on Sexton’s contract as he’s a talent you can’t afford to lose!

Bourgoin… Failed to ensure an adequate playing surface for their match against Newcastle

Got any to add?
