Thought dan was good in his play yesterday. Yes his back chat will get him into trouble and when it does he may learn? Till then I am glad he is so passionate about his team he tries to win at all costs. Certainly prefer him in the team than not.

Itís pretty hard to argue with that description of him KingoftheHill. He is such a good player he doesnít need to act like that, trying to buy a penalty by kicking the ball at the French guy was incredibly footballesque. Does he act like his for Saints or is reserved for his Welsh performances? Either way, he is going to cost a team a referees are justifiably going to lose any sympathy with regard to on field decisions.

he has had his moments with us Falcon but thought yesterday saw the worst of him with that regard. IMO he was fired up due to some of the French pre game comments questioning his involvement due to concussion and this spilled over into his behaviour. He is going to get carded if he continues and even sent off if he is not careful. Be passionate and talk to the ref by all means but do it in the right manner

O'Connell also said that AR Karl Dixon was an ex Northampton Saints scrum half!

Thought the ref sold out Dickson for that incident. Dickson initially in real times calls the French knock on. Carley then has multiple big screens reviews and then says along the lines of dicksons original decision was knock on only so will go with that. I may have missed some of the conversation but sounded as though he lacked the onions and so sold his touch judge a bit with the decision.

Looking to win penalties and chat to the ref is nothing new
I remember Dawson then Dicko being the masters of passing straight into a retreating player
Also remember both of them constantly advising the referee
Any think that Healy was silent on the field

I would rather see the referees taking more control of the niggle
Players not releasing or returning the ball when penalised ( and lineout) to frustrate quick play
unnecessary holding on at breakdowns
The handbag sessions

Start with those then go after the actors

A similar mistake to spelling his name wrong you might say...

That was exactly the reason I wasn't keen to see him come to Saints in the first place. I'd only ever seen him at international level or on the occasional club visit to the Gardens. I was pleasantly surprised when he did start playing for us that he has, generally, not been like that at all. Only on the very odd occasion has this feature 'broken' through to spoil an otherwise committed player. I think he's been brilliant playing for Saints, one of the best signings for years.

A couple of the Saints forwards should 'educate' Dan B!itching Biggar. He was an utter embarrassment yesterday and should have been carded, then sent off if he failed to zip it.

Alun Whinge Jones and Pivac deserve a serious talking to as well - really poor losers.

The officials got the knock on spot on - at no time does the French forward look at the ball, so how could he be trying to slap it down?
Biggar's try should also have been wiped off - when he lost control it hit the French hand before he regathered. That's a knock on.

To be fair I've seen Dan gobbing off like that (although perhaps not quite as bad as this) in a Saints shirt and as soon as the ref told him to reign it in he did.

Pretty much the same as any "angle" a player is trying, they'll push it as far as they can until the ref clamps down on them

Thatíll be the Welsh prop Wyn Jones then. As opposed to the second row Alun Wyn Jones...

I thought Dickson said that his first impression was that it was a knock on as part of the tackle. Carley then didn't see anything that conclusively showed it was a deliberate knock on so backed Dickson's call. It could be argued that's good teamwork.
