French fly-half Jules Plisson got pummeled by England's Courtney Lawes in their Six Nations match today. The hit was so vicious that you can hear an instinctive "ohhhhhh!" ring around the stadium in the video below.
This is a bizarre scene from the Ireland-Italy match in the Six Nations Championship. Ireland's inside centre, Gordon D'Arcy, went down with an apparent leg injury and play continued around him as he remained on the ground. Eventually medics showed up to tend to him, but the action never really left the area so play…
The Beeb's a paragon of good taste and proper culture, which rather makes you wonder how the Six Nations rugby competition ends up on its esteemed airways. (Or this.) Yet there it is, and in today's match featuring France against Scotland in Edinburgh the BBC found itself face-to-face with a naked France supporter.
