NEW YORK (AP) — Paul Stanley of Kiss wants to shout it out loud: The band is miffed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for not inducting members Eric Singer and Tommy Thayer along with the original lineup.
Cardiff (United Kingdom) (AFP) - Wales inflicted Scotland's heaviest Six Nations defeat with a crushing 51-3 victory at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium on Saturday. The Scots never recovered from having to play nearly an hour a man down after full-back Stuart Hogg was sent off for a late tackle on Wales fly-half Dan Biggar. The visitors, seeking a first win in Cardiff in 12 years, took an early lead but from then on it was one-way traffic as Wales, unable to win a third successive title following last week's 29-18 defeat by England, took complete control of their final match of the 2014 Championship. This was Scotland's third heaviest Test defeat of all time, with their previous worst in the Six Nations a 43-3 thrashing by England in 2001.
Ireland held on to beat France 22-20 to win the Six Nations and give a fairytale ending to the career of Brian O'Driscoll in a gripping climax to the 2014 Championship. In a compelling match at the Stade de France, France held a 13-12 half-time lead thanks to two Maxime Machenaud penalties and a conversion of Brice Dulin's try, while Ireland scored two tries through Jonny Sexton and Andrew Trimble, the former missing two of his three kicks. Sexton converted his second try early in the second period, followed by a penalty, but France fired back through a Dimitri Szarzewski try after some sustained pressure, Machenaud converting to make it 22-20.
