Wales beat the Barbarians as Shane & Martyn Williams bid farewell

Yawn, how many farewell matches does Shane Williams need? It's getting a little tiresome.

Motu Matu'u massive hits and great sportsmanship against the Rebels

Was watching the match live and when I saw his genuine act of sportsmanship and concern for the opposition player I immediately hoped Rugbydump would feature it. Glad you guys did, the young guy deserves the recognition! Oh, and both were cracking, great hits - talk about making an impact on the game!

Brilliant series once again. Fantastic to see the values and spirit of rugby used to change lives.

School of Hard Knocks 2012 - Episode 2

I'd give my left nut to play touch with the Baa-Baas... Good on the lads for giving up their time - the spirit of rugby in action!

Calum Clark cited for bending Rob Hawkins' arm backwards

What's the latest on this? Thought it would have been ruled upon by now. Hope this thug gets a long time away from the game!

Dean Mumm's huge hand-off on the Sharks' Marcel Coetzee

Brilliant! Had a good laugh at this one. Classic when Coetzee gets his face buried into the turf.

Calum Clark cited for bending Rob Hawkins' arm backwards

Just joined the dots about him being the same player from that Junior World Cup incident a few years back. He was a dirty, shameless player then, and from this incident he clearly still is. He is a disgrace, and not fit to play our beautiful game. I hope he gets a loooooong ban...

God damn that looked painful...

Digby Ioane suspended for five weeks for tip-tackle on Coetzee

Poor decision. While not a textbook tackle, he does seem to try and bring him down to the ground safely (pretty successfully I might add!) when he senses the tackle go awry.

Hope this doesn't stop Diggers being the hard running, hard hitting player he is!!

Keven Mealamu struck with bottle after Bulls vs Blues game

Disgraceful behaviour by the supporter(s).

Not sure there's much that Ranger could have done differently to attempt to tackle the player/stop the try either, feel he was possibly treated a little harshly there. Maybe he could have tried to get under the player a bit more, but he was running at full belt to get across, get down and make the tackle, and stop the player grounding the ball. It's a violent game and it was a violent collision, I don't believe it was malicious though.

On the lighter side of things, here's are a few amusing examples of how pitch invaders (of the nude sort) have been dealt with in the past in Oz:
