Sir Alex Ferguson was left fuming after his side were held to a draw following a ridiculous penalty decision from referee Mike Jones.Ferguson raged after the game: “What’s the point in criticising the officials every week if they still don’t give us the decisions I want.

The RFU are taking legal action against Sam Tomkins and Wigan Warriors after he produced a performance of mediocre quality in his one-off appearance for the Barbarians against Australia. They say that they only selected him to play to show how shit Rugby League actually is and that in this respect he is a considerable let down. A spokesman for the RFU said: “We are disappointed with Sam’s actions on Saturday. He made all his tackles, actually managed to catch and pass unlike the real Union players and even had the cheek to score a try. Now people might think Rugby League is a real sport.”
