Assuming the translation is correct, this is no apology at all. Either you aimed your knee at someone's back with the intention of harming him (although probably not expecting to break any bones) and apologise for being an evil b*start or you claim it was an accident and that Heaslip was an unlucky bystander. Clearly it was the former as you would only fly into contact knee first if you were trying to injure yourself or someone else.
I hope he is banned for at least as long as Heaslip is out injured. Not that I have a lot of sympathy for Heaslip considering he is prone to knee people in sensitive places when he deems them to be offside.

Same thing happened to the ABs in the pool game vs France at the last world cup. Very very frustrating to see

Not a good look to kick a guy on the ground, especially as it appears fairly close to the head. But we've been through this before, if someone comes down to my place of work and tackles me there is a chance some unpredictable, uncharacteristic violence will ensue. If you have the balls to get your kit off and streak, especially if you're a hot girl, people might cheer for you. Fully clothed, expect a different reaction

I'm not sure which part of this is better - the Portuguese guy owning up, the Fijian leaving the field without tooo much fuss, or the way everyone has misinterpreted your post.

The least impressive one was May. He gassed Conrad Smith which I could probably do and then Dagg misjudged his timing. Not really any more than that, pure individual effort (although is was two on four so have to give some credit).
The Boks ones were both really impressive but probably the one vs NZ was more special because they went on to win for the first time in several years. In fact, both were better than the Habana one that won it a couple in recent years.
But I'm tempted to give it to the Canadians just based on the knot in my stomach as she broke away! Length of the field try from a tight head, not often you see that. Plus Canada beating France in the WC. She'd be the only women's rugby player most people were talking about this year and not just because she's cute!

Poor Matt Dunning, for the next century (or at least until we get rugby league scrums and props change body type) whenever a front rower even considers kicking a ball, his name will come up. It's one of rugby's great stories, along with Umaga hand bagging Masoe to tears.

I love that they barely know how to answer the question about faafafine because it's so accepted they don't really have to have an explanation.

Ideally you'd want them mostly to be international players but the tradition is to pick one or two uncapped. The trouble with this fixture is that as far as i know it's not an official test so none of the European clubs have to release players to play for the Barbarians and the top 30 players from NZ, Oz, SA and several other countries are on tour. So it leaves mostly tier 2-3 players who are available and willing. Still a very nice squad though.

Sonny Bill took a dive but I can't remember who it was against - maybe Australia? Sneaky smile on his face afterwards too. One more reason some people don't like the guy

Keep in mind that it's not international rugby but two villages. It is classic islander humour that you see plenty of during more casual games.
I'm guessing the "bloody kiwi or aussie" (i'm one of them) point meant that even though we're not islanders (although technically we are), we can spot islander humour when we see it.
