Not to stick the head in the sand and defend Heaslip, but his failed test was as a result of re clarification on the ratio of Testosterone in humans threshold.

He (naturally) apparently was 5:1....the new classification was 4:1....it's close enough to kind of explain, it's not out of the question that he was a freak. Although it does raise questions on microdosing.

Fine. So why spin it? Why pretend one agency tested him over another?

I can't answer that, but for such a fine a margin - I would be inclined to believe that the story is as it is. As to why he said it was one agency over another? Perhaps he's an idiot....I really find that one strange myself.

I am quite cynical when it come to drugs but knowing Heaslip's Dad, a man who testified against Slobodan Milosevic during war crimes trial in the Hague, I would be very very surprised. What I will say though, Jamie completed his degree in Biomedical Engineering as a full-time student before becoming a professional rugby player. That's a lot S&C to make up on........

That Irish heavy defeat looks worse now. Fair play to England they are very much the team to beat in the final.

Don’t think you can read anything into that in fairness Dinny

We both had a share in a start up, thought he was as big a pr!ck as you could meet. Equally doesn’t make him any more or less likely to have take PEDs

You could see Gatland engineering a win against them

Possibly, will England play as well again? Was thst their final? Alway hard, in whatever sport, is to replicate a fantastic semi-final performance.

On the game, England were excellent from the first whistle.  Dominant in every facet of the game and in fairness, never looked like losing. 

Could, and should, have been a lot worse for New Zealand.  Remember this England team hammered Ireland pre-Japan.

Be interesting to see how England go in the Six Nations in the New Year.

Could England be roided up? That is the big question for me. A very convincing peerformance today against rugbys naturally outstanding team. It is only a year and a half since Ireland beat England at Twickenham 24-15. Now England are on a differnent level to Ireland.

Maybe they aimed to peak for the WC like a serious team with a top coach? Jones made no bones about what his ultimate goal was when England were getting tanked near the start of his reign.

Looking forward to tomorrow, I'd say England would prefer to play South Africa in the final tbh, Wales would have zero fear and could take them.

It's rugby - they're all roided up.

South Africa in the final would be a bigger threat than Wales, NZ went with a young team and the like of Cane, Ben Smith, and Loane not starting, looking a strange decision but England and their blow in dominated the match. Christ that bollacks Farrell hard to like.
