Johnny Wilkinson announces he will retire at the end of season

Obviously he's an England legend, our greatest ever fly half etc. but imagine if he hadn't been plagued by injuries in 04-05! Thats extra tours of NZ and australia(which were disasters) he could have shined at.

But the best match had to be the Sharks-Crusaders match...if you have not see in it...look it up. What an effort by the Sharks.



Watched all eight matches on my list I agree that was the best one. Was brutal, I suspect Jean Deysel will miss several games for that disgraceful stamp.

Northhampton vs Leicester & Leinster vs Ulster were about equally hard hitting matches that were hard fought throughout. Glasgow vs Munster was a fun match and how about the golden boot of Seremaia Bai in extra time for the win against Montpellier

The sport of rugby will miss him. If Toulon wins both the H-Cup & Top 14 Champions this season it will be off his boot.

now we get the privilege of playing against Life U.

Beating Dallas was awesome. They had a huge home crowd. It was a tale of two halves, with the wind being a factor. We opened up a 34-10 lead shortly after halftime, but Dallas stormed back to make it 34-29. The 2nd half ran around 47 minutes, naturally everyone on our sideline was freaking out. But we made one last defensive stand and the final whistle blew.

Sacramento was a big team. Some very dynamic Fijians. When we kept it tight and structured, we dominated. They were dangerous after a turnover and quick to take advantage of our mistakes. The first half was pretty even but we had more gas down the stretch.
